Canadian aircraft maker Bombardier Aerospace has concluded the week at the 2012 Farnborough International Airshow with firm orders worth $3.27 billion, as also commitments for its Q400 NextGen, CRJ and CSeries aircraft.
Bombardier said orders have come from around the world as the air show provided it the opportunity to connect with business and commercial aircraft customers from around the world.
"We arrived at Farnborough with solid momentum following a strong first half of the year, and I'm delighted with the success we have had this week," said Guy C Hachey, president and chief operating officer, Bombardier Aerospace. "This airshow is a wonderful opportunity for us to connect with our stakeholders across the industry, and I'm very pleased with the level of interest and activity we're seeing in all of our aircraft programs and services."
"We have had a tremendous volume of traffic in our chalet, the CSeries Dome that houses the CSeries aircraft cabin demonstrator and flight deck, and the static display. We have proudly introduced our new brand promise, The Evolution of Mobility, to customers, suppliers, government representatives, industry partners and members of the media that we interacted with over the course of the week," added Hachey.
Bombardier Commercial Aircraft said it has received firm orders and other commitments for up to 52 aircraft, worth up to $3.27 billion, from China Express Airlines, airBaltic, Jazz Aviation LP and an undisclosed customer, since 7 July.
So far in 2012, Bombardier said it has received orders for a total of 154 aircraft, including firm and conditional orders as well as options, from 11 customers from across the globe.
