The Airline Reliability Performance Awards recognize operators of Bombardier CRJ Series regional jets and Q Series turboprops who achieve the highest 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 deemed most important by Bombardier’s customers such as product performance, airline support and customer focus.

The awards were presented in a special ceremony during Bombardier Commercial Aircraft’s 2017 European Regional Review being held this week in Munich.

Widerøes Flyverskap received an award for the 10th consecutive year and Jazz Aviation repeated last year’s achievement by winning Awards in three categories. Rockwell Collins was recognized with 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 program. “I congratulate all our award winners for their outstanding efforts in the past year.”
