Bombardier Business Aircraft announced today it will showcase three of its class-defining business aircraft at this year’s Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (ABACE) show at Shanghai’s Hongqiao airport in China from April 12-14, 2016. Bombardier’s Challenger 350, Challenger 650 and Global 6000 aircraft will be on display.
“ABACE is gaining momentum every year, and once again, we are delighted to participate in full force with three of our aircraft on display”, said Khader Mattar, Vice President, Sales, Middle-East, Africa, Asia Pacific & China, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “With a very strong fleet of more than 120 aircraft based in Greater China1, Bombardier is well-positioned to further reinforce its current presence as a world-class provider of efficiency-enhancing business aircraft in the region”.
“We expect China to be an active market in the next 10 years. Growth in the region will be driven by the medium and large categories of aircraft and the opening of airspace for civil aviation and significant investment in airport infrastructure should help increase the demand for business jets in China”, he added.
With the industry’s most comprehensive product portfolio and a commitment to customer satisfaction, Bombardier continues to grow its leadership position in the business aviation industry. From light jets to large, ultra long-range aircraft, Bombardier offers a solution to all customers, whatever their requirements may be.

The Challenger 650 aircraft features the Bombardier Vision flight deck, providing pilots with new levels of control and comfort, in addition to increasing situational awareness and reducing pilot workload. This combination of capabilities provides the best value in business aviation: latest generation Flight Management Computer, Synthetic Vision System (SVS), MultiScan™ weather radar and available head-up display with Enhanced Vision System (EVS).
Global 6000 aircraft: The Global 6000 business jet offers more cabin volume and more floor space than any other aircraft in its class.
