Both the Learjet 75 and Learjet 70 received full type certification from EASA on 12 September 2014.

Simon Burrows, regional vice president, sales, Western Europe, Bombardier Business Aircraft, says: “We are delighted to see the first Learjet 75 aircraft enter into service in Europe, and we are confident that its performance and efficiency, combined with its completely new interior, will allow the Roullier Group to optimize their business missions.”

“It is a great milestone for us to introduce this aircraft in Europe, which remains the second largest market for business jets. The region currently represents 12 per cent of the worldwide installed base and is expected to receive 3,575 unit deliveries by 2033,” adds Burrows.

The Learjet 75 has a range of more than 2,000 nautical miles, capable of flying at a cruise speed of Mach 0.81 and can carry four passengers and two crew non-stop from Paris to Cairo or Madrid to Moscow. It is also able to carry eight passengers with a full fuel load.
