Bombardier Q400

Paradiso believes the customer experience is what sets us apart from other carriers. An important part of that experience is the aircraft we fly: The Bombardier Q400.  The aircraft of choice is reliable and efficient; thus allowing us to provide the best customer service experience for the traveling public.

Paradiso will be flying the Canadian-built Bombardier Aerospace Q400 turboprop aircraft.

The modern Q Series aircraft is the quietest turboprops flying today, thanks to the development of a revolutionary Noise and Vibration Suppression (NVS) System. Not only does this NVS technology significantly reduce noise levels, it also reduces cabin vibration, making the flight as comfortable as possible. With a maximum cruise speed of 360 kts (667 km/h) and outstanding airfield performance, the Q400 is easily as fast as most jets on airline routes under 500 miles (900 km).

The Q400 aircraft is built in Toronto at the Bombardier Aerospace plant. The Q400 aircraft engines are also designed and manufactured in Canada by Pratt & Whitney Canada. The Pratt & Whitney PW150A engine is the most advanced turboprop engine currently in service, producing nearly twice the take-off power of older turboprop engines, with significantly improved fuel-efficiency.

The Q400 offers the best of both worlds: able to either fly slower to minimize fuel burn or faster to maximize productivity. With more seats, more legroom, more passengers, more cargo and more flights per day, the Q400 has been continuously improved to make it the largest and most comfortable turboprop in the world.
