Bombardier's Year To Forget

Bombardier Aerospace delivered 238 aircraft during 2013, compared with 233 aircraft deliveries in the previous calendar year. However, year-on-year orders were down, from 481 in 2012 to 388 last year. Most of those were for business jets, with only 81 firm orders – net of cancellations – for commercial aircraft. "The global economy has remained persistently sluggish, and with its recovery taking longer than originally anticipated, 2013 continued to be a challenging year for aviation," said Guy Hachey, CEO, Bombardier Aerospace.
