De Havilland Canada Team on the Way to Singapore Airshow 2020 to Showcase Product and Service Offerings for Customers in the Asia-Pacific Region
Toronto, February 4, 2020 – De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Limited (De Havilland Canada) is ready to reaffirm its commitment to customers in the Asia-Pacific region during the upcoming Singapore Airshow. A Dash 8-400 aircraft, which is one of two recently delivered to leasing company TrueNoord, will be a feature of the airshow’s static display. The aircraft is configured with 86 seats and will be operated by PAL Express, an airline under the banner of Philippine Airlines, the flag carrier of the Philippines.
The exhibited aircraft, along with a demonstration of Expliseat’s ultra-light TiSeat E2 in De Havilland Canada’s Chalet, will re-inforce the availability of “extra capacity” options for the Dash 8-400 aircraft that are suitable for the Asia-Pacific region. Depending on aircraft configuration, the TiSeat E2 reduces in-flight weight by 300 to 1,000 lbs. and offers up to 1 per cent in fuel savings, while preserving passenger comfort.
De Havilland Canada will host media briefings on Tuesday, February 11 at 12 p.m. and Wednesday, February 12 at 11 a.m. (local time) in the Changi Exhibition Centre - Media Center Room 3.
