NetJets to Take Delivery of First Global 7500 in 2021

Bombardier has confirmed that it plans to deliver NetJets’ first Global 7500 aircraft in 2021.

NetJets previously placed a firm order for 50 Global business jets, with options for an additional 70 Global aircraft in 2011. The firm order included 20 Global 7500 and Global 8000 jets. In 2012, the company also announced a milestone order for 100 Challenger business jets, with options for an additional 175 aircraft. The firm order included 75 Challenger 350 and 25 Challenger 650 business aircraft.

NetJets has also exercised options for five Challenger 350 aircraft and a Global 6000 aircraft to join the fleet of more than 120 Challenger and Global jets in service, as deliveries for the originally firm-ordered platforms are nearing fulfillment.

Based on 2018 list prices, the new transactions are valued at approximately US$195 million.

“The Global aircraft family is ideally suited to our owners’ needs for range, reliability, interior comfort and smooth ride,” said Pat Gallagher, NetJets’ Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The industry’s flagship, the Global 7500 aircraft, will make a wonderful addition to our fleet, offering the ultimate combination of performance, luxury and innovation. It is the largest, most luxurious and longest-range business aircraft ever built and will be an excellent complement to our existing large-cabin capabilities and overall fleet that is unmatched in private aviation.”

Recently certified by Transport Canada, the Global 7500 aircraft will enter service later this year with a range of 7,700 nautical miles. The aircraft has also exceeded its original takeoff and landing performance commitments, leading to a new published takeoff distance of 5,800 feet.

“Challenger and Global aircraft offer the ultimate in performance, comfort, reliability and signature smooth ride,” said Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “Our aircraft are ideally suited to meet the needs of NetJets and its distinguished Owners, and this order is yet another testament that Bombardier provides its customers with the best business aviation experience. We are proud to continue to partner with NetJets.”
