Bombardier expects to sustain business jet deliveries at a similar level to last financial year's 203 aircraft, despite the economic slowdown. Deliveries of regional jets will increase as planned, the Canadian company said at its 12 June annual general meeting, but the market for its regional turboprops is "more challenging". Bombardier has booked firm orders for 119 CRJs since 1 February, but announced no Dash 8/Q sales. The company is planning to deliver 420 aircraft this financial year, up 15%.
