MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - April 25, 2018) - Bombardier has announced the names of thirteen airlines that are the recipients of the company's 2017 Airline Reliability Awards. The company also announced one recipient of the 2017 In-Service Supplier Top Achievement Recognition (STAR) Award.

Bombardier's Airline Reliability Performance Awards recognize operators of Bombardier CRJ Series regional jets and Q Series turboprops who achieve the highest rates of dispatch reliability. To be considered for an In-Service STAR Award, a supplier must have scored at least 90 per cent in areas deemed most important by Bombardier's customers such as product performance, airline support and customer focus.

The Awards were presented during a Gala Ceremony held on the first day of Bombardier Commercial Aircraft's 2018 All Operators Conference and Tradeshow being held this week in Orlando, Florida.

"Bombardier Commercial Aircraft continues to focus on delivering global service solutions to keep our customers flying competitively," said Todd Young, Vice President and General Manager, Customer Services and Q400 Aircraft Program. "Our airline and supplier awards showcase the close collaboration between Bombardier, our operators and our suppliers, and I congratulate the award recipients for their outstanding efforts in servicing the flying public in 2017."

Hosted by Bombardier Commercial Aircraft's Customer Services teams, the biennial All Operators Conference and Tradeshow is an interactive and informative event designed to promote collaboration amongst CRJ, Q Series and C Series aircraft customers, suppliers and partners. The event highlights key operational achievements and creates a unique opportunity for all participants to network with airlines, industry experts and program suppliers. The tradeshow provides suppliers the opportunity to showcase their product and services offerings while establishing or building relationships with new and existing customers.

The winners of the 2017 Airline Reliability Awards and In-Service STAR Awards are listed in Appendix A.
