Ken Ricci, Chairman of Flexjet, stated “the Gulfstream G700, with its speed, range, and versatility, will make an exceptional fractional offering. We anticipate that it will be ideally suited for those companies that need occasional access to global markets and will be the pinnacle of our Red Label offering. It will be the fifth large-cabin aircraft type in the fleet as we continue our international expansion.”
The G700 can fly 7,500 nm at Mach 0.85 or 6,400 nm at Mach 0.90. The G700 has the tallest, widest, and longest cabin in the industry, and offers up to five living areas on board.

The G700 perfectly complements their existing Gulfstream fleet and combines the best of what we do – performance, innovation, and comfort – with the largest cabin in the industry and the most advanced technology.”
