India Launches Air Show

The importance of the Indian market is not only illustrated by the inaugural International Exhibition & Conference on Civil Aviation, India Aviation 2008, at Hyderabad Airport but the fact that Bombardier will join some 150 other companies from 30 countries displaying both its commercial and business aircraft. The show, which runs from October 15 to 18, is reflective of the nation’s booming economy, rise of a middle class with discretionary spending which has sparked a dramatic growth in air travel.
The Canadian manufacturer will be displaying the CRJ900 NextGen regional aircraft, along with the midsize Learjet 60 XR, the super midsize Challenger 605 and ultra long-range Global Express XRS business jets.
"Business aviation is growing at a dynamic pace in India, said David Dixon, regional vice-president, Sales, Asia-Pacific, Bombardier Business Aircraft. In fact, Bombardier has already established roots in the country and we are committed to expand our presence even further. Our comprehensive family of Learjet, Challenger and Global business jets offer operators in the region a complete range of travel solutions to meet the increasing business travel requirements of this market."
"Bombardier Commercial Aircraft's product portfolio is ideally suited for the Indian market," said Trung Ngo, who recently became vice president, Sales, for the Asia-Pacific market. "For short-haul operations, the Q400 NextGen airliner is a fast, fuel-efficient and lower-emission 70- to 80-seat large turboprop. In medium-haul applications, CRJ NextGen aircraft are the benchmarks for regional jet efficiency in the 60- to 100-seat segment. For longer routes, the recently launched CSeries airliners are the world's newest and most advanced single-aisle aircraft designed specifically for 110- to 130-seat comfort and setting new standards in technology, fuel efficiency and reduced environmental impact."
