Bombardier has announced it has delivered the first Global 7500 business jet to a client in Jakarta, Indonesia. 

There is now a fleet of more than 50 Global 7500 aircraft flying in the world today in multiple countries 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,” said Nilesh Pattanayak, Regional Vice President, Sales, Asia Pacific, Bombardier. “The ultra-long-range Global 7500 aircraft opens up a world of possibilities for convenient and productive travel.”

Bombardier has so far refused to say who the client is that has purchased this latest business jet, which has a range of around 7,700 nautical miles, so it could take passengers non-stop from Jakarta to Seattle! 

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% of allergens, bacteria and viruses.

Bombardier is significantly expanding its customer service footprint in the Asia-Pacific region with the creation of a state-of-the-art 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.
