Brazilian Global business jet fleet set to double in 2014
At least five business jets from Bombardier’s Global family will be delivered to Brazil in 2014.
The fleet of Bombardier’s Global family of private jets is set to double in Brazil during 2014, as operators in the country take delivery of pre-owned and new build aircraft.
As of 1 January 2014, there were five Global family aircraft registered in the country, comprised of two Global Express XRSs and three Global 6000s. The oldest of these, Global 6000 msn 9018 / PP-VDR, was built in 2000, while the youngest is 2012 built msn 9447 / PP-GUL.
But this year will see the addition of one new build Global 5000 msn 9584 / PR-NOC and Corporate Jet Investor knows of at least four previously owned Global 5000s / Global 6000s, ranging in build years from 2000 to 2011, due to be sold into the country.
The new acquisitions come six months after Bombardier named Lìder Aviação, a Brazilian air charter, sales and maintenance company, as exclusive sales agents for the country.
The long-range Brazilian fleet has been growing steadily over the course of the last few years with deliveries of Dassault’s Falcon 7Xs and Gulfstream G450s and G550s particularly well represented.
