Bombardier works on composite wings for next single-aisle of Airbus

FULL ARTICLE

Montreal - Bombardier wants to supply composite components for Airbus such as fuselages and wings.

After selling the majority stake of the CSeries program to Airbus and the Q400 to Viking Air, the focus of the Canadian company is now to use all of its technological know-how to provide components to other aircraft manufacturers.

Bombardier plans to work like Japanese manufacturers Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) and Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI), which provide large structural components for Boeing through their advanced technologies in composite material production.

Bombardier said that it has been working with the European Aircraft Manufacturer for the Airbus Composite Wing program, which could give rise to the production of a new narrowbody aircraft that will replace the A320neo in the next few years.

Canadian manufacturer's experience with the CSeries is an advantage to provide the innovative laminar flow wing that Airbus dramatically needs.

Canadian manufacturer would be the first foreign company out of Europe to provide wings for an Airbus aircraft. The European company usually manufactures the large aircraft components itself.

Bombardier Aerospace continues to produce composite wings for the Airbus A220, former Bombardier CSeries.
