SINGAPORE—Bombardier plans to boost its presence in Asia-Pacific, a move that comes after arch-rival ATR came perilously close to locking Bombardier out of the region's fast-growing turboprop market.

ATR in recent years has won the lion's share of new orders for turboprops.
SINGAPORE—Maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) firms are set to benefit from a wave of new start-up carriers in Asia.
Carriers are preparing to launch operations in an effort to capitalize on the next travel boom, but because these start-ups are small, each will be relying heavily on outside parties for line and heavy maintenance.
