Dotted line signed for five Learjet 75s
Learjets of all flavours have now surpassed 25 million flight hours, and the brand's success story continues today with one customer ordering five Learjet 75s.
Sold: Five Learjet 75s to an undisclosed private customer.

Bombardier has sold five Learjet 75 aircraft to an undisclosed customer. The transaction is valued at approximately US$69 million dollars based on 2019 list prices.

This follows the landmark achievement set earlier in 2019 when the Learjet fleet surpassed the 25 million flight-hour mark; the first Learjet business aircraft entered service in 1964.

“The ultimate business tools, Learjet 75 aircraft feature industry-leading performance and help drive direct bottom line results,” says Bombardier Aviation senior vice president, worldwide sales and marketing Peter Likoray. “Reliability and longevity are just two of the reasons customers among Fortune 500 companies continue to choose Learjet aircraft for productivity gains. With its bevy of recent enhancements, the Learjet 75 aircraft is a superior business jet offering in terms of size, performance and reliability, all at a highly competitive operating cost.”

Bombardier continues its Learjet investment with its recently-released comprehensive Garmin G5000 avionics upgrade that will allow customers to optimise their routes and paves the way for future technological enhancements. The upgrade will be offered as forward and retrofit for in-service Learjet aircraft. Bombardier also recently announced that Learjet 75 aircraft operators now benefit from lengthened intervals between recurring major powerplant inspections, extended from 3,000 to 3,500 engine hours.

The Learjet 75 is the only business jet in its class to feature an eight seat double club configuration, a flat floor throughout the cabin and a pocket door for reduced noise levels.
