Bombardier has expanded its Challenger family with the addition of the Challenger 650. In partnership with NetJets, the global launch customer for the aircraft, the Challenger 650 jet was introduced at the NBAA in Orlando, Florida, in October.

On June 11, 2012, NetJets placed a firm order for 25 Challenger 650 jets, formerly referred to as the Challenger 605 NG, with options for 50 additional aircraft. The Signature Series brand of the Challenger 650 aircraft, unique to NetJets, has been designed with unique features such as customised cabinetry, seating, next-generation in-flight entertainment and lighting. Deliveries of the aircraft are scheduled to begin in 2015.

Bombardier president Eric Martel says: “This aircraft will provide our customers with the ultimate in-flight experience, a superior baseline offering and the lowest direct operating costs in its class. With the Challenger 650 jet, they will have it all.”

Adds NetJets senior vip global asset management Chuck Suma: “The proven reliability of the Challenger 605 series played a significant role in our decision to order Challenger 650 aircraft. This new aircraft, with its enhanced performance capabilities, cutting-edge interior design and the lowest direct operating costs in its class, will be a great addition to our fleet.”
