Bombardier’s entire portfolio is generating strong interest in the Asia-Pacific region, where a new generation of business jet users is emerging in the wake of the pandemic.

The Global 7500 aircraft, with a maximum range of 7,700 nautical miles, can take passengers non-stop from Jakarta to Seattle, Singapore to San Francisco, Tokyo to New York and Melbourne to Los Angeles.

Exclusive innovations such as the Soleil lighting system, designed to combat jet lag, and the Smooth Flĕx Wing, delivering the smoothest ride, allow passengers to arrive refreshed and rejuvenated.
