MNG Jet, an aircraft management and charter company with a fleet of 10 business jets and a maintenance organization located in Istanbul, Turkey, has taken delivery of a Challenger 605 aircraft from Bombardier.

"We believe this aircraft is perfectly suited for travel within the Middle East and look forward to operating it in Turkey."

The Bombardier fleet of Learjet, Challenger and Global jets occupies approximately 25% share of the business jet market in the Middle East. To date, Bombardier business aircraft based in the Middle East region has reached 100 Bombardier business jets, with a quarter of them based in Turkey.

"We are thrilled to add another Challenger 605 business jet to our current fleet of aircraft in Turkey," said Khader Mattar, Regional Vice President, Sales, Middle East, Africa and Turkey, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "The Challenger family of aircraft is very popular in the Middle East and account for over 60% of Bombardier's deliveries in the region."
