Bombardier has used the Farnborough Airshow to launch a new cargo-passenger combi configuration of its Q400 NextGen regional turboprop airliner.

The company says the cargo-passenger combi Q400 is available in various configurations, including one which offers a combination of up to 4,000kg of cargo capacity and 50 passengers with 32 inch pitch seats.

“The combi Q400 NextGen aircraft provides unique opportunities for airlines operating routes with medium to low passenger loads, but with high cargo potential,” Bombardier’s Senior Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Asset Management, Ray Jones said in a statement. “Along with the recently launched dual class and extra capacity options, the combi option illustrates Bombardier’s ongoing investment in the Q400 NextGen aircraft program and offers airlines unmatched operational flexibility in short-haul markets. The Q400 NextGen aircraft is now well positioned to reinvent once again the contemporary turboprop market through additional profitable growth.
