Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 19 September 2011

Bombardier Aerospace is attending the Aviation Expo/China 2011 in Beijing from 21-14 September 2011.

While Bombardiers relationship with China began more than 50 years ago, its involvement in Chinas aviation industry began in the 1970s. Today, this longstanding relationship has grown to include a steady expansion of Bombardiers customer base and deliveries, along with an increased focus on development and manufacturing opportunities.

Bombardier projects that over the next 20 years, Chinas fleet of commercial aircraft will grow to become the worlds third largest, closely following Europe and the United States. As Chinas regional aircraft play a key role in feeding traffic to big city hubs and meeting the countrys present and forecast needs, Bombardier predicts a demand for almost 2,400 commercial aircraft in the 60 to 149-seat segment over the forecast period.

Bombardier is well positioned to meet the needs of Chinas growing air transportation needs with its CRJ and Q-Series families of regional aircraft and the new CSeries jetliners.

Business aviation in China is experiencing rapid growth. Bombardiers latest market forecast for the aviation industry predicts a total delivery of 2,360 business jet deliveries destined for China over the next 20 years. With a solid fleet of business jets in the country, and a strong market share of approximately 29% of the business jet market in China, Bombardiers Learjet, Challenger and Global jets are all represented. The fast-growing fleet of Bombardier business aircraft based in China has already surpassed 50 jets.

 To date in 2011, Bombardier has opened a new regional support office (RSO) and parts depot in Hong Kong, added a Line Maintenance Facility (LMF) in Jinan, and hired a new Director, Business Development in Beijing. This is the first phase of a much broader strategy to establish a world-class service and support hub in Asia, supported by satellite facilities throughout the Asia Pacific region.

Aviation Expo/China 2011 welcomes visitors from Wednesday, 21 September to Saturday, 24 September 2011.

The Bombardier exhibit, located in the China National Convention Centre (CNCC) at D-1, will be closed on Saturday, 24 September.

CSeries Aircraft Cabin Mockup

Bombardier will showcase a full-scale cabin mockup of the all-new CSeries jetliner at Aviation Expo/China 2011.

Designed for the growing 100 to 149-seat market, the CSeries family of aircraft combines advanced materials, leading-edge technology and proven methods to meet commercial airline requirements in 2013 and beyond.
