Flexjet increases Bombardier Challenger 350 order
Flexjet has ordered an additional 20 Bombardier Challenger 350 business jets, adding to the 20 aircraft it already has on order.
Although the order is currently a memorandum of understanding if all aircraft are delivered the order would be worth $544 million at 2015 list prices.
Flexjet first order the Challenger 350 in 2013 as part of a larger order with Bombardier for Challenger and LearJet aircraft.
“The impressive demand we are seeing from the marketplace is dictating the expansion of our Challenger 350 fleet and shows what an extraordinarily capable and comfortable aircraft this is,” said Michael Silvestro, CEO, Flexjet. “The order also extends our partnership with Bombardier, which has been a cornerstone of our offering since our founding in 1995, helping us to achieve the position of strength we occupy today.”
The company took delivery of its first specially outfitted Challenger 350LXI in January 2015.
“We are proud of the positive response to our Challenger 350 offering, our best-seller this year. This has led us to order 20 more of this highly popular aircraft,” said Silvestro. “Our pride is rooted in the affirmation that we are providing our Owners with an aircraft solution that they enjoy, provides unprecedented comfort and most effectively gets them to the places they desire to go.”
