Held at the Dubai World Central Airport, members of Bombardier’s senior leadership team from commercial aircraft and business aircraft will be on site to meet with customers, suppliers and other stakeholders at the Dubai Airshow, which runs from November 8 to 12, 2015.
“Recognized worldwide as a premier venue for meeting key industry leaders, the Dubai Airshow also represents a great venue and opportunity for us to display our line-up of aircraft and provide an update on the exciting developments ongoing with C Series aircraft’s certification program,” said Fred Cromer, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “Additionally, it’s a great opportunity to showcase the Q400 aircraft and CRJ900 aircraft’s performance capabilities, making them ideal for different types of operations in a diverse region as displayed by local customers Abu Dhabi Aviation and Egypt’s PAS – both of which operate aircraft in a hot and varied environment.”
“The Middle East remains a solid market for business aviation, and this year’s show will see us highlight our entire family of jets,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Middle East has more than doubled the size of its business jet fleet in the past 10 years, demonstrating the growing significance of business aircraft demand in the region. With Bombardier’s comprehensive line of business jets, and a dedicated authorized service facility, we deliver complete travel and support solutions befitting all business and leisure needs of the region.”
The six aircraft from Bombardier’s portfolio of industry-leading products being featured on static display include the technologically advanced CS100 airliner, Q400 turboprop, CRJ900, Learjet 75, Challenger 350 and Global 6000 aircraft.
