From crafting sleek high-speed trains and exceptionally designed business jets to engineering the best commercial aircraft used by the world’s biggest airlines, Bombardier – an undisputed pioneer in aerospace and the world’s leading manufacturer of trains and planes – has raised the bar in aviation with the all-new C Series aircraft.
Celebrating its 75th anniversary, the Montreal-based aerospace innovator carrying the iconic business jet brands Challenger and Global is all set to unveil its first batch of C Series jets this year. Outfitted with the game-changing Pratt & Whitney Geared Turbo Fan engines, the jets will be for Korean Air, South Korea’s national airline and the third operator of the C Series.
The only single-aisle aircraft specifically built to serve the 100- to 150-seat market segment, the C Series has been praised for its unrivalled cost efficiency, optimal performance and impressive passenger experience.
Since its delivery of the first fleet of C Series units last year, Bombardier has opened opportunities for airlines to develop markets and hold their ground in more competitive segments with less investment.
It’s a fitting start to Bombardier’s latest disruption to the aviation industry – which the company strongly aspires to market in Asia, Africa, Europe and North America over the next 20 years.
“The C Series is really a growth engine for Bombardier and a step forward in the future for Canadian aerospace – as a completely new aircraft designed with all-new technology,” says Fred Cromer, president.
“We’re very focused on the future and have a history of bringing innovation to the marketplace – a difficult process not without risk that takes a tremendous amount of investment and time – and we’ve shown the ability to succeed”…Fuente: http://www.scmp.com/country-reports/business/topics/canada-business-report-2017/article/2119093/bombardier-redefines-air
