The 1,000th Global aircraft by Bombardier has been delivered to NetJets. The milestone was reached as the NetJets team led by president of sales, marketing and services Patrick Gallagher took delivery of the private aviation company's first Global 7500.

The addition of the type to the NetJets fleet redefines its large cabin, long range offering and, it says, elevates the choice of travel options for its international owners. With a 7,700 nm range, NetJets owners will be able to fly from New York to Beijing or San Francisco to Sydney without refuelling stops. The largest and quietest aircraft in the NetJets fleet, it is the first of a firm order of 20 Global 7500 aircraft.

“We take pride in operating one of the industry's most advanced fleets and we are delighted to accept our first Global 7500 aircraft today,” says Gallagher. “At a time when demand for our aircraft is at its highest, our strategy is focused on continuing to deliver solutions that meet our owners' needs and expectations. We anticipate our owners will appreciate the added value the aircraft brings and know they will be thrilled to experience flight in the Global 7500 business jet.”

The Global 7500 aircraft boasts the first Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for a business jet. The independently verified EPD details information about the aircraft's environmental footprint throughout its lifecycle, and thus plays an important role in the pledge both companies have made to support the private aviation industry's commitment to environmental sustainability.

“The incomparable Global 7500 business jet will now delight NetJets owners not only with its industry-leading range, but also by its unique Nuage seat, Soleil lighting system and four true living spaces” adds Éric Martel, CEO and president, Bombardier. “We are proud that our 1,000th Global aircraft delivery represents the first Global 7500 aircraft to join the NetJets fleet.

“This double celebration sees our flagship aircraft become NetJets' flagship business jet and is a signature moment for all of us as we cap off a remarkable year in aviation. I want to thank the many talented team members, past and present, who have supported the Global programme during the last two decades, and our dedicated customers who have enjoyed the Global experience.”

On the occasion of this announcement, PricewaterhouseCoopers led a study of the economic footprint of the Global 7500 aircraft in Québec, Ontario and Canada. Results show that between 2010 and 2019, the Global 7500 programme development contributed and facilitated a total economic footprint in Canada of $4.8 billion in GDP as well as an annual average of 3,386 full-time equivalent jobs. In addition, through its overall manufacturing activities, Bombardier is expected to contribute and facilitate $2.0 billion in GDP per year to the Canadian economy and 8,456 jobs per year on average.
