“I am thrilled to celebrate the 100th delivery of the Global 7500 aircraft with our valued customer, VistaJet.” stated Éric Martel, President, and CEO of Bombardier. “VistaJet recognized early on that this aircraft would transform the business jet industry and the enormous success of Bombardier’s Global 7500 in transforming the private aviation industry. I would like to thank our teams in Montréal, Toronto, and Wichita for designing, building, and testing this amazing feat of technology.”
The 100th Global 7500 marks a milestone for the aircraft that began with the first delivery in December 2018 and celebrated the 50th delivery in March 2021. As Bombardier’s flagship, the Global 7500 is key to the company’s financial performance, with 50 aircraft delivered during the last 12 months. The production ramp-up appears to be well on track for Bombardier.
