VistaJet to Supplement its Airfleet with a Number of Jets from Bombardier
Swiss international business-aviation provider VistaJet has added five Bombardier Global 6000 jets to its airfleet, the move being completed at the beginning of the year. This brings the company’s airplanenumbers up to 42, with plans to add as many as 20 more from Bombardier by the end of the year. It’s definitely a sizeable investment, as each of these aircraft, which can transport up to 15 passengers at a cruise speed of 590 mph and with a range of about 6,900 miles, is priced at around $60 million.
These aren’t the only additions VistaJet is planning to make. The company has also ordered 10 Challenger 350 jets (which should replace its Learjet 60 XR airplanes), in addition to another 10 Challenger 605s. The super-midsize 350 is an upgrade of the 300 model and features new canted winglets, two upgraded Honeywell jet engines, as well as increased range and cabin window size and has enough room transport 8 passengers in comfort and style.
The wide-body Challenger, on the other hand, is an improved version of the 604 model. At a cruise speed of 540 mph it has a range of 4,600 miles and can accommodate up to 12 passengers.
