This aircraft was recently delivered to an undisclosed customer based in Jakarta.

With a worldwide fleet numbering more than 50 aircraft, the Global 7500 business jet continues to exceed expectations and reinforce its position as the industry flagship. This unparalleled aircraft is also growing its presence in the Asia-Pacific region, with Global 7500 business jets now based in multiple countries including Japan, Australia, Taiwan and Malaysia.

Bombardier’s entire portfolio is generating strong interest in the Asia-Pacific region, where a new generation of business jet users is emerging in the wake of the pandemic. With its refreshed Global family of large-cabin business jets and its best-selling Challenger platform, Bombardier is well-positioned to meet this growing demand.

“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.”

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 to Los Angeles.

Passengers can enjoy such long-distance flights in absolute comfort thanks to this aircraft’s four spacious living areas and patented Nuage seating collection. Exclusive innovations such as the Soleil lighting system, designed to combat jet lag, and the Smooth Flĕx Wing, delivering the smoothest ride, allow passengers to arrive refreshed and rejuvenated.

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. This site at the Seletar Aerospace Park will quadruple the operation’s footprint, making it the largest OEM-owned business aviation maintenance facility in the region.
