Bombardier Eyes Asian Markets


Bombardier Inc is betting on fast-growing markets like India to boost sales of its Q400 and CSeries narrow-body jets, a senior executive said yesterday, at a time when the Canadian planemaker faces a trade row over sales to the United States.

Cognard said he saw India’s regional connectivity scheme as ‘well designed and likely to boost demand for its aircraft in the country.
