Bombardier Delivers 100th Global 7500; Milestone Jet Goes to VistaJet
On March 29th, Bombardier celebrated its 100th Global 7500 delivery with its largest customer, VistaJet, which has taken 10 of the aircraft manufacturer’s flagship business jets so far. The delivery ceremony took place at Bombardier's Montreal Laurent Beaudoin Completion Centre, where the company outfits the aircraft after they’re flown from its Toronto assembly plant. This is where customers oversee the interior finishing of their Global 7500, familiarize themselves with them, and take delivery.
Among an audience of Bombardier employees and special guests, French-Canadian singer-songwriter Gabriella Laberge kicked off the party, before Bombardier VP of communications Eve Laurier hosted a fireside chat with VistaJet Founder and Chairman Thomas Flohr and Bombardier President and CEO Eric Martel. The two reflected on the close relationship the companies have had for the past 18 years.
