Global business aviation company VistaJet and business jet aircraft manufacturer Bombardier are celebrating a milestone delivery of the Global 7500 aircraft.
The Bombardier Global 7500 aircraft has a range of over 7,700 nautical miles, which opens up global access in long-haul private travel.
VistaJet offers its customers long-haul travel on the Global 7500 to 187 countries worldwide – 96% of the globe – and to some of the most hard-to-reach areas in a single flight.
The celebration took place at Bombardier’s Laurent Beaudoin Completion Centre in Montréal on 29 March. It marked Bombardier’s 100th delivery of the Global 7500, and VistaJet’s 10th, making it the largest operator of the aircraft type in the world. VistaJet is planning to have up to 17 Global 7500 aircraft in its fleet by the end of 2022.
Thomas Flohr, VistaJet’s Founder and Chairman, said: “We are extremely proud of this landmark moment with Bombardier, as we grow our Global 7500 fleet and meet the growing demand for ultra-long-range solutions. VistaJet is committed to a sustainable aviation future and supporting the global business industry with this expansion. Our enhanced product offering on board the Global 7500 also guarantees that our clients, whether business or leisure travellers, are given the best and most seamless flying experience. We look forward to welcoming more members and supporting the business world as our growing fleet of Global 7500 aircraft opens a new era for long-haul private travel.”
Éric Martel, Bombardier’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said: “I am thrilled to celebrate the 100th delivery of the Global 7500 aircraft with our valued customer, VistaJet. VistaJet recognised early on that this aircraft would transform the business jet industry, and the enormous success of Bombardier’s Global 7500 in transforming the private aviation industry. I would like to thank our teams in Montréal, Toronto and Wichita for designing, building and testing this amazing feat of technology. It’s thanks to their talent and dedication that this aircraft has raised the bar for excellence in this sector.”
