The 500th Bombardier Global has entered service, with the milestone aircraft, a Global 6000, delivered to French corporation Groupe Bollore earlier this week. “We are delighted to mark this event with Groupe Bollore, a true example of global corporate leadership,” said Michel Ouellette, Bombardier Business Aircraft vice president and general manager for Globals. The first Global-series jet, a Global Express, was delivered in July 1999, to AirFlite, which operated the aircraft on behalf of Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A.
