Bombardier delivers 1000th Global and NetJets’ first 7500
Two birds with one stone, or rather one bird and two milestones for Bombardier and NetJets today as the Canadian OEM marks its 1000th Global aircraft delivery with the US operator’s first Global 7500.
Patrick Gallagher (pictured left), president, Sales, Marketing and Services, NetJets, said: “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. 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,” added Gallagher.
NetJets said the Global 7500 aircraft is set to be its flagship aircraft. It will also be the largest and quietest aircraft in the NetJets fleet. The new jet is the first of a firm order of 20 7500s.
Éric Martel (pictured right), CEO and president, Bombardier, said: “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. I want to thank the many talented team members, past and present, who have supported the Global program during the last two decades, and our dedicated customers who have enjoyed the Global experience.”
