Bombardier sees Russia/CIS region orders for small commerical aircraft at nearly 500

Bombardier stated (21-May-2012) its 20-year commercial aviation market forecast projects deliveries of 460 commercial aircraft in the 20- to 149-seat category in Russia and the CIS through to 2030. More than 50% of the deliveries are expected to be in the 100- to 149-seat segment, while most of the remainder will be mainly in the 60- to 99-seat segment. Bombardier chief country representative, Russia and CIS Sergey Ermolaev said Russia presents a key market for diversifying the use of turboprops and regional jets and there is a high potential for non-airline market applications such as cargo, corporate shuttle and business aircraft conversions.
