Bombardier has delivered two Global 7500 aircraft that will be managed and offered for charter by Chartright Air Group for two different customers. This marks the first deliveries of the Montreal plane maker’s flagship business jet in Canada – with total deliveries of the Global 7500 above 50. Both aircraft will be based at Pearson International Airport.
“As the Global 7500 business jet is assembled in Toronto and completed and delivered from Montreal, we are delighted that more Canadians will have the opportunity to share the enormous pride we feel at Bombardier when we witness this spectacular aircraft take to the skies,” said Éric Martel, President and Chief Executive Officer, Bombardier.
The Global 7500 is rated for a top speed of Mach 0.925 and a maximum range of 7,700 nautical miles, potentially connecting Toronto to Johannesburg and Montréal to Bangkok non-stop. “Our Global 7500 aircraft continues to redefine long-distance business travel,” said Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Sales, New Aircraft, Bombardier.
Chartright has been a prominent operator in Canadian business aviation for more than 30 years. “The team at Chartright is thrilled to be the first charter operator in Canada to welcome these prestigious aircraft as part of its managed fleet,” said Adam Keller, President, Chartright. “With more customers turning to charter for convenience and peace of mind, we see nothing but a bright future ahead.”
