When considering the Apr-Jun 2019 period, the company recorded a ratio of orders to deliveries equal to 1.2:1.

Also in the Q2 2019, Bombardier announced an updated version of its light aircraft Learjet 75 called Liberty. The new business jet is made on the basis of Learjet 75, but with an updated interior. Two seats were removed on the plane, as a result of which Liberty can take up to six passengers. Due to this, the cabin creates a feeling of more space, as well as reduced aircraft weight.

Some standard features were removed and turned into additional options, which helped to keep the cost of the base aircraft just below US $ 10 million. The first delivery of the new LearJet 75 Liberty will take place in 2020.
