Attesting to the increasingly important role the Indian market holds within the greater Asia-Pacific region, and with demand for business and commercial aircraft projected to continue to grow in the area, Bombardier Aerospace will arrive at India Aviation 2014 in Hyderabad to showcase its innovative aircraft and its superior after-market services solutions.
Guests will have the opportunity to experience first-hand the luxury of the wide body Challenger 605 business jet and to learn more about Bombardier’s impressive range of commercial aircraft, which are ideally suited to meet the future demands of the Indian market. Further supporting its commitment to the Asia-Pacific region, Bombardier will also showcase its customer services and integrated aftermarket portfolio.
India Aviation 2014 will be open for trade visitors from Wednesday, March 12, to Friday, March 14 and Saturday, March 15, to Sunday, March 16 for public visitors. The Bombardier chalet, which is located by the static display area at chalets 7-8, will be closed on Saturday, March 15 and Sunday, March 16.
Over the next 20 years, Bombardier forecasts over 4,740 deliveries in Asia-Pacific (including Greater China and India), with specifically 1,340 business jet deliveries in India. The demand, driven by economic growth, globalization and the increase in the number of billionaires in those markets, is expected to rise even further. With the industry’s most comprehensive product portfolio and a commitment to leadership in customer satisfaction, Bombardier continues to grow its leadership position in the business aviation industry. From light jets to large, ultra long-range aircraft, Bombardier offers a solution to all customers, whatever their requirements may be.
Currently, about 275 Bombardier Dash 8/Q-Series turboprops, CRJ regional jets and CSeries airliners are in service with, or on firm order from, over 35 customers and operators in the Asia-Pacific region, excluding China. These aircraft are all optimized for the markets they are designed to serve, and Bombardier Commercial Aircraft’s regional sales and marketing team is positioned both in Singapore and Mumbai to provide industry-leading solutions to current and prospective customers.
The long-term outlook for India and the Asia-Pacific region shows upward market trends will prevail. Bombardier’s Commercial Aircraft Market Forecast covering aircraft from 20 to 149 seats predicts that the Asia-Pacific region, excluding China, will represent approximately 16 per cent – or 2,020 units – of the global market from 2013 to 2032.
