  • Bombardier

Bombardier, a multinational aerospace and transportation company based in Montreal, Quebec,  has forecasted the Latin American airline fleet in its market sector to almost double over the next 20 years. Bombardier is confident its commercial aircraft line-up can secure it a good slice of the business. Bombardier’s global market forecast focuses on the 60-150-seater sector, where 650 aircraft are currently operating in Latin America region.Bombardier expects that Latin America deliveries will comprise 500 large regional aircraft seating 60 to 100 passengers, and 550 small single-aisles in the 100-to-150-seat category. Airlines worldwide have placed firm orders for over 360 CSeries aircraft, but none have been announced from Latin American carriers. Airbus sits high in Latin America, where companies like Avianca Holdings, LATAM Airlines Group, Volaris and Interjet have made Airbus narrowbodies foundations of their fleets. Bombardier is well-positioned to benefit as the market recovers following a “strategic commercial effort that started three years ago” to grow its business in the region. This involved the setting up of local offices in Miami and Sao Paulo and reinforcing customer support.
