Bombardier is continuously investing in its global aftermarket services and recently implemented a regionalized structure for its Customer Services & Support teams that will help ensure better support to customers locally, with quicker response times and key personnel located in their region and time zone, while ensuring consistency in the support delivered worldwide. In May, Bombardier also announced the expansion of the range of services available to business aircraft operators through its wholly owned Amsterdam Service Centre, which will include engine services and interior refurbishment, as well as aircraft cleaning and detailing services.
Aircraft on static display
Challenger 350 aircraft: The Challenger 350 jet boasts class-defining performance, a true 3,200 nm (5,926 km) range with full fuel and passenger load and will connect Paris with Lagos non-stop(i). Building upon the legendary segment-defining Challenger 300 jet, it features a state-of-the-art cabin that maximizes natural light and redefines the man-machine interface, all the while maintaining the performance attributes that have become synonymous with the Challenger family. A mock-up of the cabin and cockpit of the Challenger 350 aircraft will be on static display.
Global 6000 aircraft: The Global 6000 jet's large cabin size and levels of comfort combined with an optional stand-up shower and the Bombardier Vision Flight Deck means it offers a perfect blend of high-speed range capability and traveller comfort. Offering the ultimate in technology, this intrepid jet can link Paris with Tokyo and Paris with Rio de Janeiro, non-stop, with eight passengers and three-to-four crew(i).
Q400 NextGen aircraft: The "comfortably greener" 70- to 80-seat Q400 NextGen turboprop airliner is a large, fast, fuel-efficient aircraft that provides an ideal balance of passenger comfort and operating economics with a reduced environmental footprint. It uses 30 to 40 per cent less fuel and produces up to 40 per cent fewer emissions on routes where it has replaced similar-capacity older jets. The Q400 NextGen aircraft's maximum cruise speed of 360 knots lets it fly on demand-driven interchangeable schedules with jets. However, the Q400 aircraft can slow down to achieve fuel parity with other turboprops on a per-seat basis, while still maintaining both speed and cost advantages. The Q400 NextGen aircraft on display will be in the livery of the growing and innovative Latvian carrier, airBaltic.
CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft: Designed specifically to meet the needs of airlines in high-frequency regional markets, the CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft is achieving the lowest cash operating cost per mile and per seat for operators in its market segment, while delivering extra range, exceptional reliability and a greener footprint. The CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft delivers the lowest fuel burn per seat of any in-production regional or narrowbody aircraft with fewer than 130 seats. CRJ NextGen aircraft provide an outstanding passenger environment with a new interior that features larger overhead luggage bins, larger windows, improved cabin lighting and redesigned ceiling panels and sidewalls. Representing one of Bombardier's newest and fastest growing customers, a Garuda Indonesia CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft will be on display.
CSeries Pavilion: Equipped to support state-of-the-art multimedia entertainment, and to keep visitors informed about Bombardier's activities at the air show, the CSeries aircraft pavilion will also house the airliner's flight deck and cabin demonstrator. The flight deck features a number of technologically advanced communication and navigation aids and benefits from the latest avionics. The cabin demonstrator, representing the latest look and feel of the CSeries aircraft interior configuration, features a business class section, an array of economy seats at various seat pitches and a variety of optional in-flight video displays.
