MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 07/04/12 -- The world's third largest civil aircraft manufacturer, Bombardier Aerospace is pleased to return to the Farnborough International Airshow with an impressive display of its diversified portfolio of business and commercial aircraft. During this prestigious event, Bombardier will showcase its industry-leading products, technical expertise and superior customer support and aircraft maintenance services. It is also the first time the Company will introduce its new branding campaign to an international audience at an airshow.
"Farnborough is a highlight in our aerospace calendar of events as it consistently attracts the largest gathering of aviation customers, manufacturers, suppliers, and government representatives," said Guy C. Hachey, President and Chief Operating Officer, Bombardier Aerospace. "This is also an opportunity to launch our new brand, The Evolution of Mobility, to a global audience. In just a few words, we have encapsulated our promise to all our stakeholders - to create better ways to move people.
"While the business and commercial aircraft markets continue to recover, and are trending positively, current indicators remain mixed," Mr. Hachey continued. "Bombardier will stay ahead by investing in its future. We are strengthening our global reach by seizing opportunities in key markets, by expanding in emerging countries, and by responding to our customers' needs to develop innovative and sustainable solutions. While we are a global company, we remain local with an ever-growing network of service centres and production sites in communities around the world."
