Business Aircraft

Bombardier currently holds a 29 per cent share of the European business
aircraft market with over 550 of its jets based in the region. The Company is
positioning itself to meet industry growth by further strengthening its
business jet lineup with six aircraft programs in development, including the
Learjet 70, Learjet 75 and Learjet 85 aircraft, the Challenger 350 jet and
the Global 7000 and Global 8000 aircraft. The clear leader in business
aviation worldwide, Bombardier offers its customers the industry’s widest
range of private aircraft.

Commercial Aircraft

Bombardier holds a leading position in the regional airline market, with more
than 3,000 Dash 8/Q-Series turboprops, CRJ regional jets and CSeries aircraft
delivered to, or ordered by over 170 customers around the world. With its
CSeries family of aircraft for the 100- to 149-seat market segment,
Bombardier is well positioned to support the requirements of an even greater
array of operators and customers. The Company is the only manufacturer that
offers three distinct families of turboprop and jet aircraft, and each family
is optimized for the market segment it is designed to serve. As the global
demand for air travel and new aircraft continues to shift towards growth
markets, representatives from all sales regions will be at the air show to
meet with customers and prospects.

Customer Services

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.
