NetJets will be the launch fleet customer for the Bombardier Global 8000, and the company has placed an order for an additional four aircraft, bringing the total orders for the fractional ownership pioneer to 24 aircraft. Those 24 orders include eight Global 7500s that will be upgraded to the Global 8000 in addition to the 12 previously on order. The new aircraft is expected to enter service in early 2025, and has a list price of $78 million per aircraft. Bombardier has planned a Supplemental Type Certificate program to upgrade existing Global 7500 models to the Global 8000 specifications shortly after entry into service.

The Global 8000 will feature the longest range, at 8,000 nautical, and highest cruise speed, at Mach 0.94, of the ultra-long range market segment, competing against the forthcoming Gulfstream G700 and G800 and the Dassault Falcon 10X.

Patrick Gallagher, Netjet’s President of Sales, Marketing, and Service, said “The new Global 8000 will help us to continue offering our owners, specifically our international travellers, the pinnacle in unforgettably personalized experiences aboard the finest ultra-long-range aircraft available.”

Eric Martel, Bombardier’s President and Chief Executive, stated “The new Global 8000 aircraft is the ultimate solution for NetJets’ discerning owners, offering a truly seamless private aviation experience. NetJet’s experience and expertise make them the ideal partner to unlock the full potential of this revolutionary Mach 0.94 business jet in a large fleet context. Our valued relationship continues to grow stronger, and we are proud to share this historic milestone together.”

The Bottom Line

NetJets is a key customer for Bombardier, and the expansion of their Global 8000 orders bodes well for Bombardier and its latest model at the top end of the market. This is an important marker for Bombardier, as the competition is increasing with the forthcoming competing models from Gulfstream and Dassault.
