Quote: New Delhi, Nov 07: Canada-based aircraft firm Bombardier is in talks with several Indian carriers to sell its regional jets and turboprop aircraft meant for serving short-haul routes and smaller airstrips.
"We are in advanced stages of discussions with some of these airlines. Our 86-seater Canadian Regional Jet (CRJ) was stationed here for a week in September when we displayed it to our potential customers in India", Bombardier Chairman and CEO Laurent Beaudoin told here.

Indus Air is staring operations later this month with a fleet of CRJ-200's. However, the operating economics of small jets will preclude them from too many sales in India. However Bombardier missed out big time with the Q400's surrendering the burgeoning turboprop to ATR which has had massive success in India moving almost 100 frames here!
