A Wichita-built Learjet 75 will be one of two business jets Bombardier Business Aircraft is showcasing beginning Thursday at an airshow in Mexico.

Bombardier also has brought a Challenger 650 to the Aero Expo 14th International Aviation Trade Show & Convention in Acapulco, Mexico. The event runs through Saturday.

Bombardier claims it has the largest fleet in Mexico and Latin America.

“Bombardier is well-positioned to further reinforce its footprint in Mexico as a world-class provider of efficiency-enhancing business aircraft and, as such, we are excited to return to the event to underscore our commitment to the Mexican and Latin American market,” said Stephane Leroy, Bombardier regional vice president of sales for Latin America, in a news release.

Learjet 75 deliveries fell in 2016, from 32 jets in 2015 to 24.
