Bombardier is talking to potential customers about building a VIP version of its 110/130-seat CSeries small airliner.

According to the company's commercial aircraft president Gary Scott, "it makes a very good VIP aircraft. We have not launched it, and have no orders for it, but we have a lot of interest for it. We will no doubt build one."

Speaking in New York at the start of a roadshow series to promote the CSeries, Scott said Bombardier has "always envisioned and planned that we'd have a BBJ - a Bombardier Business Jet" for the CSeries, but will not let the project distract it from its main job of bringing the commercial version to market.
