Bombardier delivers Bombardier Aerospace has delivered the 800th Dash 8/Q Series aircraft, a Q400, to Luxair of Luxembourg. It was Luxair’s second Q400 from an order for three aircraft. 800th turboprop Total orders for the Dash 8/Q Series family stood at 911 aircraft as of June 1, 2007, making it the best-selling regional turboprop program in history Since the original Dash 8 Series 100 was launched in June, 1980, Bombardier has launched the Dash 8/Q300 in March, 1986 and the Dash 8/ Q200 in March, 1992. The Q Series was launched in 1996, marking the introduction of the second generation Dash 8 incorporating the proprietary Noise and Vibration Suppression system (NVS) and a new interior design. The Q400 was launched in June, 1995 and entered service in 2000. Total orders for the Dash 8/ Q Series family stood at 911 aircraft as of June 1, 2007. The Q400 is the fastest turboprop in production and is gaining in popularity to replace or supplement jet operations with airlines around the world in the current high fuel price environment. While world turboprop orders decreased in the early 2000s as airlines turned to regional jets, the middle of the decade saw turboprop orders increase substantially as a result of record high fuel prices. Indeed, Bombardier Regional Aircraft’s turboprop order book has swelled since January 1, 2007 as regional airlines continue to take advantage of turboprop economics on short-haul routes. Bombardier continues to study the Q400X, a stretched derivative of the Q400 with a capacity of around 90 seats, an increase of 12 from the current maximum of 78 seats.

Croatia Airlines takes four Q400 Croatia Airlines of Zagreb, Croatia is Bombardier Regional Aircraft’s newest turboprop customer, having placed an order for four 76-seat Q400 airliners in June, 2007. The airline took options on two additional aircraft. The Q400 aircraft will replace three 48-seat ATR42 turboprops in the Croatia Airlines fleet. “The high speed and excellent operating economics of the Q400 made it the obvious choice for our shorter range routes which require an increase in capacity, and allow us to fly some of the longer routes which are not suited for our Airbus aircraft,” said Dr. Ivan Misetic, President and Chief Executive Officer. 6 Regional Update / June 2007
