De Havilland Canada has completed its first-ever Dubai Airshow in the UAE.

It was the company’s first appearance at the Dubai Airshow since the Dash 8 aircraft programme was acquired by Longview Aviation Capital, and re-launched as De Havilland Canada in June.

De Havilland Canada showcased a Jambojet Dash 8-400 aircraft.

De Havilland Canada COO Todd Young said: “Our Dash 8-400 aircraft is well aligned with the requirements of a wide variety of operators and has the capability to increase revenue and expand regional networks. We are very pleased to count Jambojet amongst our customers.

“We’re building on the market momentum of the launch of the 90-seat Dash 8-400 variant, the delivery of our 600th aircraft earlier this year, and the capture of our first firm order a few weeks ago as we continue to focus on the cost competitiveness of our aircraft across their lifespan and enhance our customer services and support.”

The Dash 8-400 aircraft offers customers jet-like performance with turboprop benefits, the company says.
