Foster welcomes new orders for Bombardier Aerospace CSeries Aircraft

Jun 20, 2011

Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster has welcomed today’s announcement by Bombardier Aerospace that it has secured further orders for its CSeries aircraft.

Arlene Foster said: “Bombardier is a major employer in Northern Ireland and almost 400 of its workforce are already dedicated to CSeries activity at the company's new wing factory in Belfast.

“Today’s announcement that Bombardier Aerospace has secured 10 orders and a further six potential orders for its CSeries aircraft is extremely positive and welcome news for Northern Ireland, especially coming on the back of the recent CSeries orders announced by the company.

“The aerospace industry is one of our most successful and technologically advanced sectors. Invest Northern Ireland has been working closely with Bombardier and other aerospace companies to support growth and ensure that the sector remains internationally competitive.

“These new contracts signal continuing success for the CSeries programme, and will deliver future economic benefits as firms access the valuable supply chain business associated with the CSeries wing project, which involves investment of £520 million in Northern Ireland.”
