Bombardier Aerospace Appoints New Sales Representative
for Germany

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - March 14, 2005) -

ExecuJet named exclusive sales agent

Bombardier Aerospace has named ExecuJet Aviation Group as the exclusive
sales representative for its Challenger 300 and Learjet family of
business jets in Germany, effective immediately.

"ExecuJet excels at offering business jet customers one of the
industry's most comprehensive array of transportation solutions, making
them an obvious choice for Bombardier in our goal to provide German
customers with integrated services of superior quality," said Jahid
Fazal-Karim, senior vice-president, new aircraft sales, Bombardier
Business Aircraft. "ExecuJet has achieved extraordinary success selling
Bombardier business jets worldwide, and we are confident that this
latest agreement for the important German market will prove to be just
as successful."

Under the sales representation agreement, ExecuJet will work closely
with Bombardier's European sales team, headed by Bob Horner,
vice-president, sales, Bombardier Business Aircraft. Together, they will
offer solutions to existing and potential Bombardier customers including
aircraft sales, Skyjet International and ExecuJet in-house charter
support and aircraft management and operations.

"Being awarded this Bombardier sales representation in Germany marks
another important milestone in ExecuJet's European business expansion
plans," observed Niall Olver, chief executive officer, ExecuJet Aviation
Group. "Not only does it provide a platform to launch our integrated
aviation sales and services business model further across Europe, it
also gives ExecuJet the opportunity to offer turnkey, integrated
solutions to first time buyers and customers in Germany."

ExecuJet's move into Germany began with the announcement of the
company's acquisition of Frankfurt-based charter and exclusive
Bombardier business jet operator Jet Connection in August 2004.

Bombardier Aerospace has a leading presence in Germany, one of the
world's top business jet markets. Currently a total of 85 Bombardier
business jets are registered in Germany, representing 35 per cent of the
total installed base.
