Airshow’s static display will include a CS100 aircraft in the livery of first operator SWISS, an 86-seat Q400 turboprop from Thailand’s Nok Air and Challenger 650 and Global 6000 business jets.

Bombardier announced today its upcoming presence at Asia’s biggest airshow – the Singapore Airshow 2016 – with an impressive line-up of commercial and business aircraft for the static display.

The line-up will include the all-new, recently certified CS100 airliner and two business aircraft – the Challenger 650 and the Global 6000 business jets. Additionally, Bangkok, Thailand-based airline Nok Air will display an 86-seat Q400 aircraft. During the show, which will be held at the Changi Exhibition Center, members of Bombardier’s Commercial Aircraft and Business Aircraft senior leadership teams will be on site to meet with customers, suppliers and other stakeholders. Singapore Airshow 2016 runs from February 16-21.

“Having our aircraft and teams on display at the renowned Singapore Airshow is a great way to debut the recently certified CS100 aircraft for our customers and stakeholders in the Asia-Pacific region. It’s an exciting time as the SWISS-liveried CS100 aircraft embarks on its world tour over the next few weeks,” said Fred Cromer, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “In addition to updating the market on the 100- to 150- seat C Series aircraft program, it’s also a great opportunity for our sales and marketing teams to update the region on the latest developments from our CRJ Series and Q Series families of aircraft. This year that includes success stories from Nok Air and SpiceJet as flagship Q400 aircraft operators in the region, as well as China Express with its recent repeat order for 10 additional CRJ900 aircraft.”

“Singapore is a key strategic location for Bombardier Business Aircraft, and the Singapore Airshow offers us the opportunity to further engage with our customers and partners in this important region,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The installed base of business aircraft in the Asia-Pacific region is growing, and as a result, Singapore's aerospace cluster is prospering. With our wholly-owned Singapore Service Centre, which is celebrating its second year of operation, our presence in Singapore supports our long-term commitment to the region at large, and we are poised for success.”
