General Aviation VistaJet orders 10 Challenger 350
Bombardier has released, that operator VistaJet has published that it has ordered 10 Challenger 350 business jets.
In December of last year, Bombardier announced the sale of 10 Challenger 350 aircraft to an undisclosed customer. Now, this customer has become public with VistaJet announcing the order. The firm order was one of the largest for Bombardier in 2020.
VistaJet plans to take delivery of the 10 aircraft through 2022. The operator stated that this latest order is a response to “a growing and urgent demand” in the segment of the super-midsize aircraft. With this order, the fleet of VistaJet will grow to over 90 aircraft that will provide access to 187 countries throughout the world.
Thomas Flohr, Founder and Chairman, VistaJet, said: “It is an incredibly exciting time as VistaJet transforms the architecture of how companies and individuals fly. We continue to see rapid acceleration in new Members, which is driven by corporate and executive demand for our business mobility offerings. Global private aviation networks will be even more vital to support businesses and the economy. The expansion of our worldwide fleet will guarantee our customers full confidence in a consistent flying experience anywhere in the world — offering the best value in the industry through our unique asset-light flight solutions. We remain committed to providing critical support to businesses in this new world — we kept our business steady during 2020 and we are already seeing much increased demand for VistaJet’s asset-free solutions in 2021 and beyond.”
Éric Martel, President and Chief Executive Officer, Bombardier, added: "We are extremely proud of our long-standing partnership with VistaJet and are thrilled that they have again chosen Bombardier aircraft to support their fleet expansion plans. With unmatched performance and comfort, the Global 7500 and Challenger 350 are the perfect aircraft to support VistaJet’s rapid growth as more people turn to business aviation and the enhanced safety and reliability it provides.”
The Challenger 350 business is a best-selling aircraft in its category and incorporates performance with customer experience. Especially in a post-pandemic world, this aircraft will be able to respond to a growing interest in private aviation with reliable services.
In the press releases, Bombardier and VistaJet also announced, that the operator has taken delivery of two additional Global 7500 business jets. The flagship aircraft is one of the largest business jet from the Canadian manufacturer. Recently, Bombardier was able to celebrate the milestone of the 50th Global 7500 delivery.
