The announcement is expected to pave the way for the aircraft’s entry-into-service this year.

Bombardier bills the aircraft as the largest, most luxurious and longest-range business jet ever built.

The Global 7500 aircraft has at range of 7,700 nautical miles, a full 300 nautical miles further than initial commitments.

Offering spaciousness that is unique among business jets, with a full-size kitchen and four true living spaces, the Global 7500 jet is said to be the only business aircraft that can connect New York to Hong Kong, and Singapore to San Francisco, nonstop.

The Global 6500 and Global 7500 aircraft also feature Bombardier’s patented Nuage seat, which was meticulously designed for maximum comfort and is exclusive to the new Global family of aircraft.

In related news, Bombardier announced that HK Bellawings Jet Limited, the third-largest aircraft management company in Hong Kong, has firmed up an order for four Global 6500 and two Global 7500 business jets, and maintains options for 12 Global aircraft.

The order follows the letter of intent (LOI) signed at EBACE in Geneva earlier this year.

The transaction for the firm order is valued at approximately US$370 million, based on the 2018 list prices for typically equipped aircraft. The value could increase to US$1.142 billion with all options exercised.

“We’re thrilled that HK Bellawings Jet Limited has chosen the Global 6500 and Global 7500 aircraft to expand its growing fleet of business jets,” said Peter Likoray, senior vice-president, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft.

“These industry leading aircraft offer the largest cabins, the longest range and the smoothest ride in their respective classes. With wide-open living spaces, refined interior design, and the total performance synonymous with Global business jets, the new Global family is perfectly suited to meet the needs of the most discerning travelers in the region.”

“We are very impressed with Bombardier’s overall product portfolio,” said HK Bellawings president Zhang Yijia. “The new Global 6500 and the unmatched Global 7500 business jets will be an excellent complement to our existing mid cabin capabilities and overall fleet that are unmatched in private aviation. The Global 6500 and Global 7500 aircraft align with HK Bellawings’ rapid development to be a one-stop business aviation solution, empowering us to reach higher and further in the long run.”

The Global 6500 aircraft joins the high-performing Global aircraft family, offering additional range and speed, as well as highly favourable operating costs versus smaller competing aircraft with less range. The Global 6500 can connect Hong Kong or Singapore with London.
