Bombardier announced today the delivery of the 1,000th Global aircraft.
The major milestone was reached as the NetJets team led by Patrick Gallagher, President, Sales, Marketing and Services, took delivery of the private aviation company’s first Global 7500 business jet.
The addition of a Global 7500 aircraft to the NetJets fleet redefines its large-cabin, long-range offering, and elevates the choice of travel options for its international Owners.
With a 7,700 nm (14,260 km) range, NetJets Owners will be able to fly from New York to Beijing or San Francisco to Sydney without refueling stops.
The Global 7500 aircraft is set to be the flagship aircraft in one of the finest fleets in business aviation.
The largest and quietest aircraft in the NetJets fleet, this is the first of a firm order of 20 Global 7500 aircraft, sure to transform the way Owners experience global travel.
“We take pride in operating one of the industry’s most advanced fleets, and we are delighted to accept our first Global 7500 aircraft today,” said Patrick Gallagher, President, Sales, Marketing and Services, NetJets.
“The Global 7500 aircraft adds a new dimension to our long-range aircraft offerings.
“At a time when demand for our aircraft is at its highest, our strategy is focused on continuing to deliver solutions that meet our Owners’ needs and expectations.
“We anticipate our Owners will appreciate the added value the aircraft brings and know they will be thrilled to experience flight in the Global 7500 business jet.”
“The incomparable Global 7500 business jet will now delight NetJets Owners not only with its industry-leading range, but also by its unique Nuage seat, Soleil lighting system and four true living spaces,” said Éric Martel, CEO and President, Bombardier.
“We are proud that our 1,000th Global aircraft delivery represents the first Global 7500 aircraft to join the NetJets fleet.
“This double celebration sees our flagship aircraft become NetJets’ flagship business jet, and it’s a signature moment for all of us, as we cap off a remarkable year in aviation.
