Bombardier Aerospace Showcases its Aircraft, Superior Customer Support and Aircraft Maintenance Services at Farnborough Airshow

MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/14 -- Bombardier looks forward to its arrival at the 49th edition of the Farnborough International Airshow where it will showcase its iconic and sustainable aircraft and share the latest progress on its new programs with customers, suppliers, government officials and media representatives.

Reflecting the important role the Farnborough Airshow fulfills within the aviation industry, six of Bombardier's industry-leading aircraft will be on static display. They include the Learjet 75, the Challenger 350, the Challenger 605 and the Global 6000 business jets, as well as the Q400 NextGen turboprop and CRJ900 NextGen regional jet.

In addition, guests will have the opportunity to experience first-hand the future of commercial flight by visiting the Commercial Aircraft Hospitality Lounge, which will house the mock-up of the CSeries airliner's flight deck and cabin demonstrator. The Global 7000 aircraft mock-up, the largest mock-up built in business aviation, will be open for private viewings during the show at the TAG Farnborough fixed-based operator (FBO) hangar.

Bombardier Business Aircraft

Bombardier Business Aircraft enjoys a strong leadership position in Europe with an installed base of over 500 business jets, representing one third of the overall business aviation market. Bombardier offers the industry's largest product portfolio covering the light to ultra long-range segments, including new aircraft such as the Learjet 70, Learjet 75, Learjet 85, Challenger 350, Global 7000 and Global 8000 aircraft. Since last year, Bombardier has seen the entrance into service of three platforms, the Learjet 70, Learjet 75 and Challenger 350 aircraft, along with the successful unveiling of the Global 7000 aircraft mock-up at EBACE in May this year. With such a product lineup, and focus on innovation, Bombardier is best positioned to respond to the growing travel requirements of its customer base in Europe and worldwide.

Commercial Aircraft

Bombardier leads the way in the short- and medium-haul markets, creating aircraft that others seek to emulate. The company's portfolio of aircraft includes the Q400 NextGen aircraft - the most versatile and profitable turboprop available today; the CRJ NextGen regional jets - the most recent models in the world's most successful family of regional aircraft; and the CSeries aircraft - the only 100 per cent-new, single-aisle aircraft for the 100- to 149-seat market segment. As the only manufacturer that offers three distinct families of optimized turboprop and jet aircraft, Bombardier is well positioned to provide air transport solutions to a diverse array of markets.

As the global demand for air travel and new aircraft continues to shift towards growth markets, representatives from all sales regions will be at the air show to meet with customers and prospects. To date, more than 2,700 Bombardier Dash 8/Q-Series turboprops, CRJ regional jets and CSeries aircraft are in service with, or have been ordered by, over 200 customers and operators around the world.

Dedicated to our customers' success

Bombardier always finds more ways to put its customers first. With the grand opening of the Singapore Service Centre this past February and the addition of a Parts Depot and Regional Support Offices for Business and Commercial Aircraft in Johannesburg, Africa, Bombardier is providing its operators with a competitive edge through a steadily growing worldwide aftermarket service network.

Bombardier's local support networks around the world consist of more than 60 maintenance facilities, 10 wholly owned service centres in Europe, Singapore and the United States, 22 Regional Support Office locations in 13 countries and superior aircraft parts availability sustained by 13 parts facilities on five continents. Bombardier's team of field service representatives are also available to provide customers with on-site technical support and AOG coordination when required. Bombardier's unique OEM knowledge is at the heart of its pilot and technical training, which includes real world experienced instructors, sophisticated flight simulators, Flight Training Devices and more.

Challenger 350 aircraft: The Challenger 350 jet boasts class-defining performance, a true seats full, tanks full, 3,200 nm (5,926 km) range and will connect Paris with Lagos(i). Building upon the legendary segment defining Challenger 300 jet, it features a state-of-the-art cabin that maximizes natural light and redefines the man-machine interface, all the while maintaining the performance attributes that have become synonymous with the Challenger aircraft family.

Global 6000 aircraft : The Global 6000 jet's large cabin size and levels of comfort combined with an optional stand-up shower and the Bombardier Vision Flight Deck means it offers a perfect blend of high-speed, range capability and traveler comfort. Offering the latest in technology, this intrepid jet can link Paris with Tokyo, non-stop, with eight passengers and three to four crew.(i)

Q400 NextGen aircraft: Optimized for short-haul operations and seating up to 86 passengers, the aircraft is a large, fast, quiet and fuel-efficient turboprop that provides the perfect balance of passenger comfort, performance and operational flexibility with the lowest seat-mile costs in the short-haul regional market. With the flexibility to fly at both turboprop and jet-like speeds, the Q400 NextGen aircraft can be profitably deployed over short-range turboprop missions and in medium-haul jet markets. Now available in optional dual class, extra capacity and passenger-cargo combi configurations, the Q400 NextGen aircraft's versatility positions it to again reshape the turboprop market through profitable growth.

CRJ900 NextGen aircraft: As the world's most successful family of regional aircraft, a CRJ regional jet departs every 10 seconds, linking people and communities together. Optimized for medium-haul regional routes, CRJ NextGen aircraft deliver best-in-class economics and set the benchmark for lowest fuel burn and operating costs. Designed for hub expansion and point-to-point services, the CRJ900 NextGen aircraft can seat up to 90 passengers or be configured with 76 seats in a typical North American layout, featuring extra legroom and comfort. Now delivering up to 5.5 per cent lower fuel burn compared to earlier-generation CRJ900 aircraft, the CRJ900 NextGen aircraft is the perfect tool for operators to develop new markets and increase frequencies.
