Following a complete refurbishment at the end of last year, a Madrid-based Gulfstream 200 has joined Global Jet’s charter fleet. This aircraft configured with 10 passengers is capable of flying 3,800 nm at Mach 0.85. It has the largest cabin capacity in its class and is known for having a large baggage compartment. Global Jet says it is the ideal jet for completing fast flights, delivering combined luxury, performance and a spacious cabin.

A new Challenger 350 has also been welcomed into the operator's charter fleet. Based in Paris, the Challenger 350 was delivered in December and offers nine seats and is available for charter.

Travellers will be able to appreciate a complete range of entertainment features as well as wi-fi. Equipped with the latest audio system, latest obstacle avoidance system and MultiScan weather radar, the Challenger 350 is considered one of a kind. It features a double club forward cabin and a relaxing afterward cabin with a three-place divan opposite a two-seat club. The shades of grey in the cabin provide a modern and elegant environment.

Finally, Global Jet has kicked off 2020 by announcing a brand new Falcon 8X based in Geneva. With the longest cabin in the Falcon family, the jet is configured to welcome 14 passengers. Capable of flying 6,100 nm, the 8X flies at high altitudes and at high speed.

The cabin is divided into three sections. The aircraft features a large one-sided galley opposite a crew rest and is equipped with two lavatories. It is equipped with Falcon Eye, the latest technology in infrared cameras.
