Bombardier Commercial Aircraft today welcomed five Latin American airlines to its family of operators, and congratulated another that has extended its service offerings in the region with Bombardier-manufactured commercial aircraft. 

Among the airlines that have joined Bombardier’s growing family of CRJ Series aircraft operators is Rosario, Argentina-based Sol Líneas Aéreas, which started service with a CRJ200 regional jet in October 2015. Bombardier is also pleased to welcome and congratulate Star Perú of Lima, Peru; Boliviana de Aviación, Bolivia’s flag carrier; Amaszonas Paraguay, of Asunción, Paraguay; and BQB Líneas Aéreas of Montevideo, Uruguay, as it works closely with the airlines to support the launch of their respective operations with CRJ200 aircraft.

“Latin America continues to be a region of tremendous opportunity and growth for Bombardier and its customers – recognizing our respective commercial aircraft presence in the market is key to our mutual expansion strategy,” said Alex Glock, Vice President, Sales, Latin America and the Caribbean, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “We are pleased to showcase these important customers in the region and we wish them much success and look forward to meeting many at the ALTA conference this week.

“The CRJ Series regional jets, Q400 turboprops and all-new C Series aircraft are great choices for new and established operators that are seeking flexibility, reliability and cost savings as they look to change domestic transportation in the region over the course of the next couple of decades,” added Mr. Glock.

Stimulating regional market expansion and supporting local customers with aircraft that will seed growth is a very important objective for Bombardier and its customers. LC Perú of Lima, Peru, which has been operating Bombardier Q200 turboprop aircraft for almost five years and recently extended its domestic service with larger Q400 aircraft, provides a good example of such growth.

Bombardier’s current 20-year commercial aviation market forecast projects deliveries of 1,150 units in the 60- to 150-seat category to Latin America and the Caribbean (including Mexico) through 2034. Of these units, 450 units are expected to be in the 60- to 100-seat segment served by Bombardier’s CRJ and Q Series aircraft. Most of the remainder will be in the 100- to 150-seat segment for which Bombardier’s new advanced-technology C Series single-aisle aircraft is designed.
