                            Components in Morocco

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - February 7, 2013) - Bombardier Aerospace today
announced the start of production at its transitional facility in Morocco.
Following a graduation ceremony held on February 1 at the Institut des Metiers
de l'Aeronautique (IMA), 18 aircraft assemblers began production of the first
Bombardier components to come out of its Moroccan manufacturing facility.

"This is a very exciting milestone for us as we start to see our operation in
Morocco take form," said Hugo Brouillard, General Manager, Bombardier
Aerospace, Morocco. "With 18 new local employees fully engaged and trained in
the Bombardier manufacturing process and philosophy, this is the first step
towards a long future of quality component manufacturing at another
world-class Bombardier facility."

Following the initial announcement in November 2011 of Bombardier's intention
to build a manufacturing facility in Morocco, the Company has extended its
timeline for construction of the new facility as the manufacturing plan
evolves. In order to maintain the timeline for production Bombardier has set
up operations in a transitional facility located at the Mohammed V
International Airport in Nouaceur in the Greater Casablanca region, near its
future permanent facility.

The Bombardier Aerospace transitional manufacturing facility in Morocco is
currently producing simple structures including flight controls for the CRJ
Series aircraft. By year-end, the facility is expected to employ approximately
100 fully trained aircraft assemblers.
