MONTREAL -- Fractional ownership provider NetJets has become the fleet launch customer for the Bombardier Global 8000 business jet. Adding to its global fleet of more than 850 aircraft, NetJets has placed a firm order for four Global 8000s, valued at $312 million, and converted eight existing orders for Bombardier aircraft. NetJets intends to build a fleet of 24 Global 8000s, working with Bombardier to upgrade its in-service Global 7500 fleet to Global 8000 jets. NetJets could subsequently grow its fleet of private aircraft through a series of options that could be exercised progressively over the coming years.

The Global 8000 features a range of 8,000 nautical miles and a top speed of Mach 0.94. "The new Global 8000 aircraft is the ultimate solution for NetJets' discerning owners, offering a truly seamless private aviation experience," said Eric Martel, President and CEO of Bombardier. "NetJets' experience and expertise make them the ideal partner to unlock the full potential of this revolutionary Mach 0.94 business jet in a large fleet context. Our valued relationship continues to grow stronger, and we are proud to share this historic milestone together."

"The new Global 8000 will help us to continue offering our owners, specifically our international travelers, the pinnacle in unforgettably personalized experiences aboard the finest ultra-long-range aircraft available," said Patrick Gallagher, NetJets President of Sales, Marketing, and Service. "With inventory sold out through 2023 in the U.S., we are continuing to invest in further expansion for prospective owners in North America and across the globe. In fact, by the end of 2023, we are proud to share that our worldwide fleet will be approximately 30 percent larger than it was in the beginning of 2022."

TOULOUSE, France - ATR, delivered the first ATR 72-600 with the brand new PW127XT engine to launch customer Air Corsica.

Following a firm order for five new ATR 72-600, announced a year ago at the Dubai Airshow, this delivery marks an important step in Air Corsica’s fleet upgrade and sustainable development. The new PW127XT engine offers a 20% reduction in maintenance costs and a 3% improvement in fuel consumption compared to the PW127M - which means -45% fuel burn and CO2 emissions compared to similar-size regional jets.

Air Corsica’s passengers will benefit from high cabin comfort and further innovation as the aircraft will be equipped with USB ports for charging electronic devices during the flight - a first in ATR cabins.

The airline will also be optimising the maintenance of its entire ATR fleet through a 12-year Global Maintenance Agreement. This pay-by-the-hour contract covers the repair, overhaul and pooling services of Line Replaceable Units, and includes the propellers, landing gears and leading edges availability and maintenance, plus a long-term price agreement for the provision of over 2,000 spare parts.
