Bombardier Continues Studying Q400X

Kathryn Creedy

Now that the CRJ1000 has been launched, Bombardier has turned its attention back to the turboprop market, announcing today at the Regional Airline Association convention in Memphis that it is now actively making the business and marketing case for the Q400X, a 90-seat, 1000-nautical-mile range Q400X. A year ago, it said it was on the back burner because of developments with the CRJ900X, now the CRJ1000. The continued exploration was prompted by enthusiastic requests from current Q400 operators including Flybe. The program joins the C-Series – 110- to 149-seat mainline aircraft it is also considering. For a complete report see the May 28 issue of Regional Aviation News.
