MONTREAL – AVIATION – Bombardier Business Aircraft reports that the company has delivered its first Challenger 650 aircraft to be operated from Germany. This aircraft joins the Bombardier business jet fleet in Europe comprised of more than 430 aircraft in service.

“This first German customer delivery of a Bombardier Challenger 650 jet confirms the aircraft’s leadership in Western Europe,” said Christophe Degoumois, Vice President, Sales, Europe, Russia and CIS, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Challenger aircraft series, and the Challenger 650 jet in particular, are leaders in their category in Europe, with a market share of over 40 per cent. With the Synthetic Vision System (SVS) offered as baseline, its cabin almost six inches wider than the closest competitor, as well as the latest entertainment and productivity solutions, the Challenger 650 aircraft is the right choice for customers seeking uncompromised performance.”

The Bombardier Business Aircraft Market Forecast, published in May 2016, predicts business aviation industry deliveries of 1,530 aircraft in Europe for the 10-year period covering 2016-2025.

In service since 2015, the Challenger 650 jet builds on the legacy of the Bombardier Challenger aircraft series, which set the business aviation standard for reliability, efficiency and productivity for time-pressed executives and VIPs for over 30 years. Featuring a completely new and innovative cabin redesign, the Bombardier Vision flight deck technology and optimized engine thrust, the Challenger 650 aircraft delivers the industry’s best overall value, proven reliability and efficiency.
