[HD video below] Bombardier Aerospace will showcase a good mix of its business and commercial aircraft at the 2014 Singapore Airshow, next week.

Visitors to the show will have the opportunity to tour the CSeries aircraft demonstrators that will be on display at Bombardier's CSeries pavilion, and on the static display, Bombardier will showcase the Global 6000 and Challenger 605 business jets, as well as the Q400 NextGen aircraft.

Plus, following the recent successful first flights of the CSeries aircraft's first two flight test vehicles (FTV1 and FTV2), invited guests to Bombardier's unique CSeries pavilion will be able to view the full-scale passenger cabin and cockpit demonstrators of this aircraft.

The Singapore Airshow 2014 will be open to trade visitors from Tuesday, 11 February to Friday, 14 February 2014, and to the public from Saturday, 15 February to Sunday, 16 February 2014.

Over the next 20 years, Bombardier forecasts approximately 1,000 business jet deliveries in Asia Pacific, driven by replacement demand in mature countries and new demand for emerging countries. There are currently around 115 of Bombardier's Learjet, Challenger and Global business jets in operation in Asia Pacific.

In addition to the business jets, there are currently more than 300 Dash 8/Q-Series turboprops, CRJ regional jets and CSeries airliners are in service with, or on firm order from, approximately 45 customers and operators in the Asia Pacific region, Greater China and India.

Bombardier's Commercial Aircraft Market Forecast for the period 2013-2032, covering aircraft from 20-to-149 seats, predicts deliveries of 4,350 units to the Asia Pacific region, Greater China and India over the forecast period.

Recent acquisitions of Bombardier commercial aircraft in the region include an order from Nok Air of Thailand for two Q400 NextGen turboprop airliners, options for an additional two, as well as purchase rights on four others. With that order, Bombardier also confirmed that Nok Air will be the launch customer for a new extra capacity seating option, which will allow the Q400 NextGen aircraft to accommodate up to 86 passengers. Garuda Indonesia became the launch customer for the CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft in the Asia Pacific region with its order for six of the aircraft. The Indonesian flag carrier also intends to operate 12 additional CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft through a third-party lease agreement and holds options on 18 more aircraft of the same type. Some 12 of these CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft are already in service with Garuda.

The Global 6000 business jet can link Singapore with Brisbane and non-stop with eight passengers and three-to-four crew.

The Q400 NextGen turboprop is an ideal short-haul aircraft. Worldwide, Q400 and Q400 NextGen aircraft have transported more than 295 million passengers. The Q400 and Q400 NextGen aircraft program includes some 50 customers and operators in over 30 countries on five continents.
