Bombardier to Showcase its Widebody Jets at ABACE 2013

Bombardier Aerospace announced today that it will showcase two of its class-defining business aircraft at this year’s Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (ABACE) show at Shanghai’s Hongqiao airport in China from April 16-18, 2013. On display will be two jets, the Challenger 605 and Global 6000 aircraft.

“Bombardier is delighted to once again have the opportunity to showcase its products at ABACE”, said Michael Han, Regional Vice President, Sales, China. “With over 90 business jets based in China and offices in Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong, Bombardier is well-positioned to further reinforce its position in the region as a world-class provider of efficiency-enhancing business aircraft.”

Challenger 605 aircraft: The revered Challenger 605 jet builds upon the legacy of productivity, quality and reliability of its predecessor, the peerless Challenger 604 jet, leading its market share segment throughout the world. Featuring one of the widest stand-up cabins of any large category business jet available today, it can soar six passengers 4,000 nm (7,408 km) from Hong Kong to Dubai*.

Global 6000 aircraft: The Global 6000 jet’s unrivalled cabin size and levels of comfort combined with an optional stand-up shower and the Bombardier Vision Flight Deck means no other purpose built business jet comes close in terms of high-speed range capability and traveler comfort. Offering the ultimate in technology, this intrepid jet can link Shanghai with San Francisco, non-stop, with eight passengers and three to four crew*.
