Bombardier Bullish On CSeries

Bombardier is "comfortable" it will seal 300 orders for the CSeries by the time it enters service, Rod Sheridan VP of sales for Bombardier has said. Speaking at the International Society of Aircraft Transport Trading (ISTAT) conference in San Deigo, he said the goal is for one third of those orders to come from lessors. The programme currently has 201 firm orders and Bombardier’s three CS100 test aircraft are expected to ramp up operations in April, following a successful March in which their flight hours are set to double those of February. Guy Hachey, president and chief operating officer of Bombardier Aerospace, has said that the aircraft are performing “extremely well” in terms of targeted fuel efficiency. His statement came as Bombardier predicted that 2016 revenues would be between $23bn and $25bn
