Bombardier announced the delivery of the 50th Global 7500 today, following a successful production ramp-up in 2020. The company delivered 35 Global 7500s in 2020, including 16 in the fourth quarter, and expects continued growth in deliveries with the positive market response to the aircraft.
Global 7500 deliveries are now reaching a steady run-rate while the company is quickly progressing dow the learning curve. The Global 7500 has experienced a high dispatch reliability rate of 99.7%, and is the first business jet to have a third party verified Environmental Product Declaration (EPD).
Eric Martel, President and CEO of Bombardier, stated “the Global 7500 aircraft is unrivaled in the market. It provides an unmatched combination of speed, range, comfort, and reliability, making it both the industry flagship and a key driver of our growth strategy. As we mark this delivery milestone, I want to recognize and thank the many talented employees who supported the development and launch of this aircraft, as well as those currently working on the program and supporting our customers in the field. The world-class calibre of workmanship and technology found in each aircraft continues to drive strong market demand and industry-wide recognition.”
The Global 7500 continues to win accolades and set records, including the longest city-pair flown by a purpose-built business aircraft between Sydney and Detroit non-stop. During its first year in service, the Global 7500 earned the 2019 Aviation Week Grand Laureate Award, the 2019 Robb Report Best of the Best Business Jet of the Year Award, and the 2018 Red Dot Award for product design.
The Global 7500 is the first business jet to have an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) which provides detailed information about the aircraft’s life cycle environmental footprint. The Global 7500 is the first business jet conceived with this approach and reflects the commitment at Bombardier to its environmental sustainability strategy.
