ExecuJet No Longer Exclusive Bombardier Sales Agent
Bombardier Aerospace yesterday confirmed that ExecuJet Aviation no longer holds exclusive sales representation for new Bombardier Challenger, Learjet and Global business aircraft. According to a Bombardier spokesperson, the two companies terminated the exclusivity arrangement effective June 30, 2009, by mutual agreement “to allow for more flexibility given the evolution of the respective businesses and the market.” ExecuJet is now free to sell new business aircraft made by other manufacturers, but it will continue to operate authorized service centers for Bombardier worldwide. Its long-standing exclusive sales representation for Bombardier had extended across numerous countries in regions such as the Middle East, southern Africa and Scandinavia. ExecuJet Aviation Group offers a diverse range of business aviation services, including pre-owned and new aircraft sales, aircraft management, aircraft charter, aircraft maintenance, aircraft completions management and fixed-base operations. Headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, ExecuJet has operations in five regions–Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, Middle East and South Africa–and a worldwide workforce of more than 860 people.
