Bombardier reported a "challenging year" for 2013, receiving 388 new orders, a 19 percent drop from the previous year.
The Canadian airframe manufacturer said it delivered 180 business jets, 55 commercial aircraft and three amphibious aircraft. That compares to 179 business jets, 50 commercial aircraft and four water bombers during the previous year.
“The global economy has remained persistently sluggish, and with its recovery taking longer than originally anticipated, 2013 continued to be a challenging year for aviation,” said Guy Hachey, president and chief operating officer at Bombardier Aerospace.
Hachey said the company was encouraged though by its expansion into growing international markets such as the Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Russia.
