Bombardier has delivered the first Global 7500 business jet in Indonesia. The aircraft was recently handed over to an undisclosed customer based in Jakarta.
With a worldwide fleet numbering more than 50 aircraft, the Global 7500 business jet continues to exceed expectations and reinforce its position as an industry flagship. The jet is also growing its presence in the Asia Pacific region, with Global 7500s now based in multiple countries including Japan, Australia, Taiwan and Malaysia.
Bombardier's entire portfolio is generating strong interest in the region, where a new generation of business jet users is emerging in the wake of the pandemic. With its refreshed Global family of large-cabin business jets and its best-selling Challenger platform, Bombardier says it is well-positioned to meet this growing demand.
“Global aircraft are designed to deliver the ultimate in luxury, performance and smooth ride over long-distance flights, making them ideally suited to customers in the Asia Pacific region who are looking to connect far-flung city pairs,” says Nilesh Pattanayak, regional VP of sales. “The ultra-long-range Global 7500 aircraft opens up a world of possibilities for convenient and productive travel.”
The Global 7500 aircraft, with a maximum range of 7,700 nm, can take passengers non-stop from Jakarta to Seattle, Singapore to San Francisco, Tokyo to New York and Melbourne to Los Angeles. Passengers can enjoy such long-distance flights in comfort thanks to this aircraft's four spacious living areas and patented Nuage seating collection. Exclusive innovations such as the Soleil lighting system, designed to combat jet lag, and the Smooth Flĕx Wing, delivering a smooth ride, allow passengers to arrive refreshed and rejuvenated.
As more passengers look to business travel for convenience and peace of mind, the Bombardier Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft are also ideal for the Asia Pacific market, featuring long range, expansive cabin size and a smooth ride. With a 5,900 nm range, the Global 5500 aircraft can whisk passengers non-stop from Perth to Dubai, while the Global 6500 aircraft, featuring a 6,600 nm range, can connect Singapore to Rome nonstop.
All Bombardier Global aircraft are equipped with Pũr Air, a sophisticated air purification and circulation system with an advanced and scientifically proven HEPA filter, capturing up to 99.99 per cent of allergens, bacteria and viruses.
Bombardier is expanding its customer service footprint in the Asia Pacific region with the creation of a customer service centre at Essendon Fields airport in Melbourne, Australia. The facility is targeted to be operational in 2022. Meanwhile, the ambitious expansion of Bombardier's Singapore service centre is ongoing. This site at the Seletar Aerospace Park will quadruple the operation's footprint, making it the largest OEM-owned business aviation maintenance facility in the region.
