Bombardier has launched its Certified Pre-owned aircraft programme, offering customers a premium class of pre-owned products. Each available aircraft is meticulously selected, inspected and updated to adhere to Bombardier's highest quality and safety standards. For buyers seeking a ‘like-new’ experience, every Bombardier Certified Pre-owned aircraft is backed by an exclusive manufacturer one-year warranty.
“As life gradually begins to return to normal, the supply of business jets across the industry has been outpaced by demand,” says Chris Milligan, VP of pre-owned aircraft services. “A Bombardier Certified Pre-owned aircraft provides buyers with the highest quality pre-owned product, equipped with the latest safety and cabin enhancements, while providing the new aircraft delivery experience customers are looking for.”
Thanks to the programme, customers can discover an array of available Bombardier business jets and sign up to receive alerts when an aircraft becomes available. As with all new Bombardier business jets, Certified Pre-owned aircraft hold the promise of excellence in quality and reliability while demonstrating the OEM's commitment to maintaining the overall residual value of all Bombardier aircraft. Customers can count on the OEM's expertise and know-how to access, refurbish and provide services for the most exclusive selection of pre-owned aircraft on the market.
Executive VP of services and support Jean-Christophe Gallagher states: “With so many new prospective buyers on the market, Bombardier can fulfil this demand and harness our world-renowned product knowledge, refurbishment capabilities and valuation know-how.”
For further customer peace of mind, each aircraft is equipped with the latest improvements in reliability through recommended maintenance inspections, service bulletins, systems upgrades and enrolment in Bombardier's Smart Parts programme, as required. Comfort is also at the forefront of this premium experience as the aircraft is delivered with a pristine cabin benefiting from the utmost care of services that range from a complimentary deep cleaning and sanitisation to a fully refurbished interior.
A Bombardier Certified pre-owned aircraft combines operational efficiency with aesthetic beauty, while a fresh coat of Matterhorn white paint is a canvas for customers to apply a personal touch with their signature livery. Upon delivery, customers have the guarantee that Bombardier, as the OEM, will stand by its products, providing support at the onset of operations and beyond.
Customers can count on an exclusive manufacturer warranty, which extends to operational support during the first year, just like with new Bombardier aircraft. Those in search of the best quality in pre-owned aircraft can fly confidently knowing that Bombardier's families of Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft are backed by the strength and reach of Bombardier's customer services offered across its worldwide support network.
The launch of this new programme closely follows the recent publication of the first Bombardier Pre-owned Market Report, a guide for all Bombardier pre-owned aircraft transactions.
