Bombardier launches used aircraft website
Bombardier Commercial Aircraft has also launched a new website (www.commercial-usedaircraft-bombardier.com) dedicated to providing data and availability on a global fleet of previously owned CRJ and Q-Series aircraft.
With the MAKS air show in Moscow occurring this week, the CRJ200 aircraft in particular is seen by Bombardier as an ideal aircraft for the Russian and CIS marketplace. AirVolga, which recently put the first CRJ into the market, is displaying one of its recently acquired, 50-passenger CRJ200 regional jets. AirVolga has also announced its intention to acquire additional CRJ200 aircraft.
"The market for new aircraft is continuing to grow at a fast pace as airlines in Russia and the CIS seek to transform their fleets," said Gary Scott, president, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. "A number of opportunities exist to replace up to 170 ageing aircraft in Russia and the CIS. We hope to capture a large segment of this market with our optimised families of aircraft because they are well suited to meet the demands of the region's aviation industry."
Previously owned CRJ100/200/440 aircraft continue to enjoy secondary market opportunities as commercial airliners, corporate converted aircraft, and as package freighters. Bombardier Commercial Aircraft's Asset Management Group is dedicated to the management and remarketing of Bombardier's previously owned commercial aircraft portfolio.
