Bombardier's CS300 off to Dubai Air Show

Bombardier Commercial Aircraft has confirmed they will be showing off the sexy sleek and super comfortable at the 2017 Dubai Airshow next week.

Yes, the Canadian Manufacturer will be attending the show between 12th and 16th November with a CS300 resplendent in the livery of airBaltic, the event will also help mark the first year of service for the jet.

“We are very proud to bring a C Series in airBaltic’s livery at this year’s Dubai Airshow, and to celebrate alongside airBaltic the recent launch of the new route between Riga and Abu Dhabi with a CS300 aircraft,” said Fred Cromer, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “We are thrilled to see our CS300 aircraft exceeding performance targets and opening up new opportunities for our operators.”

Bombardier will also display a Q400 aircraft in the colours of Falcon Aviation, a super-midsize Challenger 650 jet and the business aircraft we'd love to own, an ultra-long-range Global 6000 aircraft.

Bombardier is looking to expand in the Middle East market, a forecast of growth for airlines in the Middle East region over the next 20 years with the need for 450 aircraft in the 60- to 150-seat category. 

“Middle East airline capacity continues to grow despite decreasing yields due to the emergence of low-cost carriers in the region,” said Jean-Paul Boutibou, Vice President, Sales, Middle-East and Africa. Right-sizing of the fleet will lead to market penetration and profitability in an increasingly competitive Middle East airline market, which will create an equivalent demand for efficient aircraft such as the C Series aircraft.”

Bombardier Commercial Aircraft’s footprint has grown steadily in the Middle-East with about 15 operators and over 70 aircraft. The high-performing Q400 turboprop has notably enabled operators in the region to successfully improve intra-regional connectivity, and the new C Series family of aircraft is a great complement to the region’s widebody fleets and provides unique growth opportunities.
