Bombardier delivered 50 commercial aircraft during 2012, the first full-year figures since it aligned its fiscal period with the calendar year.
Over the previous accounting cycle - covering the 11 months to 31 December 2011 - the airframer handed over 78 aircraft.
Bombardier took net orders for 138 commercial aircraft last year, an improvement on the previous cycle's 54, aided by deals with Delta Air Lines, WestJet and Garuda Indonesia.
These contributed to an overall order intake of 481, of which 343 were business aircraft.
Bombardier delivered 179 business jets in 2012, and overall deliveries for the year reached 233 including four amphibious airframes.
This figure is "in line" with the guidance of 235 deliveries given in March 2012, Bombardier says.
"We are the market leaders in business aircraft, and the restructuring of our commercial aircraft sales organisation is yielding results," adds Bombardier Aerospace president Guy Hachey. "Overall, we are seeing positive momentum across our entire product portfolio."
