SGA2012: Manufacturers line up orders for Singapore Airshow

Outdoor static display at Singapore Airshow 2010.JPGThe Singapore Airshow is not normally one where aircraft manufacturers save up orders. Yet, there has been some interesting chatter about what we can expect in less than a fortnight at the Changi Exhibition Centre.

Bombardier should confirm that Garuda will buy their CRJ regional jets, while ATR and Airbus are expected to announce some orders as well.

Not too sure if Boeing have lined something up, but Lion Air – their big customer – said that they expect to make an announcement around this time of the year. Could they firm their 737 MAX order?

Embraer do not appear to have anything lined up, although I heard that their E-190 might make an appearance and their Asian sales team has had success with Sriwijaya and BOC Aviation last year.

For a show that is traditionally the quietest of the big four, there appears to be a fair bit of activity ahead of it. Can’t wait for the Singapore Airshow to begin.
