Bombardier today announced that Chuck Thomas will spearhead Bombardier Corporate Shuttle Solutions sales across the United States. Mr. Thomas has 19 years experience in corporate aircraft sales, and has worked with Bombardier Business Aircraft sales for the past five years. He is based in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“Our Corporate Shuttle Solutions program represents a very exciting initiative for Bombardier,” said Jahid Fazal-Karim, senior vice-president, sales, Bombardier Business Aircraft.

“An increasing number of corporations are discovering the numerous benefits of corporate shuttles and Bombardier is well-positioned to meet the special needs of this niche market.”

New corporate shuttle management solution
Bombardier expanded its pioneering Corporate Shuttle Solutions program in October 2006, announcing an agreement with Aerodynamics Inc. (ADI) to provide one-stop fleet management solutions for Bombardier Corporate Shuttle customers and operators in the United States.

Bombardier and ADI – the largest contract operator of corporate shuttles in the U.S. –
together offer an innovative turnkey solution for companies looking to establish a corporate shuttle program without either operating their own flight department, or integrating aircraft into their existing fleet operations.

Launched in May 2005, the Bombardier Challenger 850, Challenger 870 and Challenger 890 Corporate Shuttle Solutions deliver the proven advantages of a widebody cabin, low direct operating costs, outstanding dispatch reliability and ease of maintenance, all hallmarks of the the Bombardier CRJ200, CRJ700 and CRJ900 regional airliners from which they are derived.
