A full-size cabin mockup of the Bombardier Global 7000 is making its Middle East debut at the Jetex private terminal in Dubai, where it will be on display from January 11 to February 3. Bombardier said it will showcase the ultra-long-range business jet’s “spaciousness, luxury, and comfort,” as well as its fully equipped kitchen.

"We are proud to collaborate with Jetex to showcase the Global 7000, [which] offers no compromise in terms of range, cabin space, and comfort. It will set the standard for a new category of business jets,” said Khader Mattar, Bombardier Business Aircraft’s vice president of sales for the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, and China. “The Middle East represents a huge growth opportunity for aircraft manufacturing; we are excited that the mockup will be on display in Dubai.”

The 105-foot-/32-meter-long mockup, which was unveiled at EBACE 2014, features a dining area, entertainment lounge, en-suite master bedroom and private washroom, in addition to a kitchen with a large cooking surface, high-end appliances, and room for dinnerware and glassware. Jetex will formally celebrate the mockup’s arrival with a cocktail event at its flagship Dubai South facility on January 17.

"Jetex is delighted to collaborate with Bombardier to offer our guests an exclusive opportunity to step on board the Global 7000,” said Jetex CEO and president Adel Mardini. “We believe the synergies in our businesses make the Jetex FBO terminal in Dubai an ideal venue for the regional debut of this triumph of engineering.”

Slated to enter service later this year, the Global 7000 will have a top speed of Mach 0.925 and a 7,400-nm range, Bombardier said.
