Demand Increasing for Cessna’s Aircraft in Asia-Pacific Region


Singapore.– Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, said at the Singapore Airshow here today the demand for its aircraft in the Asia-Pacific region is increasingly diverse.

“Not only has demand expanded for Cessna’s line of products in the Asia-Pacific region, that demand covers many countries and spans all models,” said Roger Whyte, senior vice president of Sales & Marketing for Cessna. "Recently, we’ve made our first commercial business jet sales in South Korea and Vietnam, and we’ve delivered our first personally owned Citation business jet to an individual in China.

“We are seeing outstanding response to our newest products, the Cessna SkyCatcher, the Citation Mustang and the Citation Columbus. The combination of performance and value that Cessna products offer is translating into great order activity throughout the Asia-Pacific region but especially in Australia, China, India and Japan.”

Cessna delivered 160 new aircraft into the Asia-Pacific region in 2007, an increase of more than 35 percent from 2006 deliveries.
