Farnborough: Bombardier looks to Asia for regional aircraft boom

Bombardier's regional aircraft focus seems poised to shift more toward Asia and other developing markets in the coming years, in acknowledgement of aviation's advancements in those regions and the relative maturity of the North American market.

The manufacturer also expects to continue making incremental improvements to its regional aircraft products – which include CRJs and Q400s – rather than immediately embarking on larger development projects, says Bombardier president of commercial aircraft Fred Cromer.

"The products will continue to evolve. I don't think it's going to be a step change; it's more incremental," Cromer tells FlightGlobal. He notes Bombardier is now selling CRJs with its new Atmosphere cabin, which has larger overhead bins and a cabin designed to feel more spacious.
