Die Dash 8 Produktion geht in eine Pause. De Havilland nimmt keine neuen Bestellungen auf …

Für die Fans außergewöhnlicher Strecken gibt es schlechte News. Das Flaggschiff dieser Routen – die Dash 8-400 – muss in Zwangspause. De Havilland nimmt keine neuen Bestellungen an. Die Produktionsstätte wird 2021 aufgegeben. Trotzdem will man die Dash 8 bei einer Erholung des Marktes wieder zurückbringen.

Die Infos:

“New Aircraft Production Pause
Given that prevailing industry circumstances have hindered the ability to confirm new aircraft sales, De Havilland Canada will not produce new Dash 8-400 aircraft at its Downsview site beyond currently confirmed orders. This is a responsible and prudent measure that reflects current industry conditions, and will limit strain on the market and De Havilland Canada’s supply base as the pandemic recovery occurs. Approximately 500 employees will be affected by the production pause.
De Havilland Canada’s objective is to resume new aircraft delivery at the earliest possible time, subject to market demand.
Downsview Production Site
The Downsview production site was sold by the previous owner Bombardier in 2018, with deadlines for the site and runway to be decommissioned. Pursuant to Bombardier’s sale agreement, the Dash 8 program’s current site lease expires in 2021. Accordingly, De Havilland Canada has begun preparing to leave the site over the latter part of the year. There are a number of excellent production site options in Canada, and the company will be ready to meet new aircraft demand as the industry recovers.”
