Bombardier’s Challenger 300 and 605 have received type approval from Brazil’s aviation authority, Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil (ANAC). According to Bombardier, the Challenger 300 can fly nonstop from São Paulo to San Juan with eight passengers, and the Challenger 605 can fly nonstop from São Paulo to Miami with eight passengers. Meanwhile, Bombardier Flexjet has expanded its secondary service area to include all of Central America and Canada. The expansion relieves Flexjet fractional aircraft owners from paying ferry fees within those areas.
