Bombardier showcasing three aircraft at Turkey's AIREX 2004
Bombardier is showcasing three of its aircraft at AIREX 2004 being held at the Istanbul Ataturk Airport, June 3 to 6. The aircraft on static display include the widebody Bombardier Challenger 604, and the ultra long-range Bombardier Global Express business jets. Also on display is the world's most advanced turboprop, the Bombardier Q400, in the last stop of its successful worldwide demonstration tour.
It is the third time that Bombardier Aerospace is participating in this biennial event, which attracted more than 15,000 delegates at its last show in 2002.
"We are pleased to underscore our commitment in Turkey and throughout the Middle East as we continue to develop new aircraft that meet the needs and high expectations of our customers," said Mike Fahey, Regional Vice President, Sales, Middle East and Africa, Bombardier Aerospace Business Aircraft. "Bombardier has one of the largest fleets of business jets operating in the Republic of Turkey and, with a 43 per cent share, is the leader in the large business jet segment. I have every confidence that Bombardier aircraft will continue to grow in number here."
"We believe that the Bombardier Q400 and our CRJ(i) Series regional aircraft are well-suited to meet the needs of the airline market in Turkey," said James Dailly, Vice President, International Sales, Bombardier Aerospace, Regional Aircraft. "In addition, we believe that there is very good potential for our Q Series(i) turboprop aircraft in non-airline applications." (menareport.com)
