Bombardier Commercial Aircraft announced twelve winners of the 2016 Airline Reliability Performance Awards and a winner of a 2016 In-Service Supplier Top Achievement Recognition (STAR) Award in a special ceremony during Bombardier Commercial Aircraft’s 2017 European Regional Review held in Munich, Bavaria, Germany.
The Airline Reliability Performance Awards identify operators of Bombardier CRJ Series regional jets and Q Series turboprops who accomplish the uppermost rates of dispatch reliability. To be considered for an In-Service STAR award, a supplier must have scored at least 90 per cent in areas considered most significant by Bombardier’s customers such as product performance, airline support and customer focus.
Widerøes Flyverskap received an award for the 10th successive year and Jazz Aviation repeated last year’s achievement by winning Awards in three categories. Rockwell Collins was awarded an In-service STAR Award.
“These awards highlight the close collaboration between Bombardier, operators and suppliers, and our devotion to serving the travelling public with efficient, reliable service,” said Todd Young, vice president and general manager, customer services and Q400 aircraft programme. “I congratulate all our award winners for their outstanding efforts in the past year.”
