Bombardier Aerospace said Wednesday that it delivered 233 aircraft during the 2012 calendar year, compared to 245 aircraft deliveries in the previous fiscal year, the 11-month period ended December 31, 2011. The Company also received orders for 481 aircraft, net of cancellations, compared to 249 orders, net of cancellations, for the previous fiscal year. Bombardier's successful order intake was supported by a number of volume orders for both business and commercial aircraft, including those placed by Delta Air Lines Inc.; NetJets Inc.; Nordic Aviation Capital and PT. Garuda Indonesia (Persero) Tbk; VistaJet and WestJet, and the delivery total is in line with the 235 aircraft delivery guidance for business and commercial aircraft that was provided in March 2012.

"A number of our existing customers reaffirmed their confidence in Bombardier aircraft in 2012 with fleet growth and fleet replenishment orders, and we proudly welcomed new customers from emerging and traditional markets. We are the market leaders in business aircraft, and the restructuring of our commercial aircraft sales organization is yielding results. Overall, we are seeing positive momentum across our entire product portfolio," added Mr. Hachey.
