NetJets adds first Global 7500 business jet to fleet

NetJets, a fractional ownership and charter company, has taken delivery of the company's first long-range Global 7500 aircraft, with an additional 19 set to join the fleet. This delivery gives Bombardier an additional reason to celebrate, as it marks the 1,000th Global aircraft delivery.The Global 7500 has the longest range and largest cabin of any business jet. The aircraft offers four living areas, including a master suite with a full-size bed, and Bombardier's Nuage seating. It has a range of 7,700 nautical miles and a top speed of Mach 0.925, allowing passengers to fly nonstop from Western Europe to virtually anywhere on the planet."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," said Patrick Gallagher, President, Sales, Marketing and Services, NetJets.The Global 7500 aircraft is the first business jet to have an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), which provides detailed information about the aircraft's life cycle environmental footprint.PricewaterhouseCoopers led a study of the economic footprint of the Global 7500 aircraft in Québec, Ontario and Canada. Results of the study show that between 2010 and 2019, the Global 7500 program contributed a total economic footprint of $4.8 billion GDP in Canada as well as an annual average of 3,386 full-time equivalent jobs. Through its overall manufacturing activities, Bombardier is expected to contribute $2 billion in GDP per year to the Canadian economy and 8,456 jobs per year on average."We are proud that our 1,000th Global aircraft delivery represents the first Global 7500 aircraft to join the NetJets fleet," said Éric Martel, CEO and President, Bombardier. "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."
