Bombardier Aerospace is a division of Bombardier Inc. and is the third largest airplane manufacturer in the world after Airbus and Boeing. It is headquartered in Dorval, Quebec, Canada.
This new jet, which offers 110-seat and 130-seat versions, competes with the Boeing 737 Next Generation 737-600, 737-700, Airbus A318, Airbus A319, and Embraer 195. Bombardier claims the CSeries will burn 20% less fuel per trip than these competitors. which would make it still about 8% more fuel efficient than the Boeing 737 Max scheduled for introduction 3 years later in 2017.
The Bombardier CRJ700, CRJ900, and CRJ1000 are regional airliners based on the Bombardier CRJ200. Final assembly of the aircraft is at Montréal-Mirabel International Airport in Mirabel, Quebec, outside Montreal, Canada.
Following the success of the CRJ100/200 series, Bombardier produced larger variants in order to compete with larger regional aircraft such as Embraer's E-Jets, Fokker's F70/100 series, the BAe 146/Avro RJ family and Sukhoi's Superjet 100.
