Bombardier Aerospace completed the week at the 2014 Farnborough International Airshow on 18 July 2014 with orders, conditional purchase agreements and written intentions for a total of 74 aircraft, valued at more than US$ 4.25 billion US should all commitments be converted to firm orders.

CSeries
The first major interest was already reported by Airheadsfly.com earlier this week: 24 CS100 aircraft to British lessor Falko Regional Aircraft Limited. Throughout the week, Loong Air (20 CS100), Petra Airlines (2 CS100s, 2 CS300s) and an African airline that wants to be anonymous turned the new CSeries customer list to twenty. Another undisclosed customer signed to purchase 13 CS300s, while firm orders of AirBaltic (13 firm CS300s, 7 options) and Falcon Aviation (2 CS100s) brought the number of CSeries aircraft commitments and interests to 513.

Q400 NextGen
On the Q400 NextGen turboprop, Bombardier surpassed the milestone of 500 firm orders with the latest coming from Horizon Air (1 aircraft) and Nok Air (6 aircraft; 2 plus earlier 4). In addition, Falcon Aviation signed its interest in five Q400s and Abu Dhabi Aviation made itself known to be a Q400 NextGen customer (2 aircraft).

Bizjet
The 2014 Farnborough Airshow marked the first public appearance of the new Challenger 350 bizjet, that joined the Learjet 75, Challenger 605 and Global 6000 aircraft present.
