Reuters reports that on Thursday, Bombardier forecast higher business jet “deliveries for 2023 despite supply-chain problems expected to subside but not disappear this year, chief executive Eric Martel said.” Canada’s Bombardier expects “to deliver more than 138 jets in 2023, compared with 123 last year, after strong demand for private flying lifted its quarterly results above expectations.” Martel told reporters of the company’s experienced supply chain issues, “Today there are less suppliers that have issues but those that remain have sometimes deeper issues which we need to work with.” He made a fresh case “for Bombardier to be included in any plans by Canada to buy reconnaissance jets.” Late last year, he “voiced concerns that such a contract could potentially go directly to U.S. planemaker Boeing.”
