A Gulfstream Gulfstream G280 recently city-pair record between Paris with Abu Dhabi.

On April 24, the super mid-sized aircraft travelled from Paris-Le Bourget Airport to Abu Dhabi International Airport in United Arab Emirates. The distance of 2,908 nautical miles/5,386 kilometers was covered in 6 hours and 16 minutes at an average speed of Mach 0.82.

Pending approval by the U.S. National Aeronautic Association, the G280’s 51st city-pair mark will be sent to the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale in Switzerland for consideration as a world record.

Scott Neal, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Gulfstream says: “It’s a testament to the G280’s many attributes that we’ve delivered more than 60 of these aircraft to operators in 11 countries.”

“The G280 had the best range, speed, fuel efficiency and cabin comfort in its class when it entered the marketplace in November 2012, and nothing has changed. It is also one of the most reliable aircraft in the industry,” Neal adds.
