Bombardier delivered a Global 7500 business jet to an undisclosed customer in Jakarta, Indonesia, marking the first delivery of the aircraft type to the country.
With a worldwide fleet numbering more than 50 aircraft, Global 7500 business jets are now based in multiple countries in the Asia-Pacific region, including Japan, Australia, Taiwan and Malaysia.
“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,” Nilesh Pattanayak, regional vice president of sales in the Asia-Pacific region for Bombardier, said. “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 nautical miles, can take passengers non-stop from Jakarta to Seattle, Singapore to San Francisco, Tokyo to New York and Melbourne (Australia) to Los Angeles.
All Bombardier Global aircraft are equipped with Pũr Air, an air purification and circulation system with a HEPA filter, capturing up to 99.99% of allergens, bacteria and viruses.
Bombardier is expanding its customer service footprint in the Asia-Pacific region with the creation of a customer service center at Essendon Fields Airport in Melbourne, Australia. The facility is targeted to be operational in 2022. Meanwhile, the expansion of Bombardier’s Singapore service center is ongoing.
