MONTREAL -- Bombardier has revealed that its new Global 7000 business jet, having completed multiple long-range flights around the world, now features a range of 7,700 nautical miles. The new range figure is 300 nautical miles greater than the company's initial specification for the aircraft.

"We are thrilled to offer this extended range to our loyal customers, who are the driving force behind our engineering feats and who will soon own an aircraft that simply has no peer," said David Coleal, President of Bombardier Business Aircraft. "Not only are we standing by our commitment to begin delivering Global 7000 aircraft this year, we are exceeding expectations along the way."

The 7,700-nautical-mile baseline range will be a feature for all existing and future Global 7000 customers. The enhanced performance will come at no additional cost to customers.

The Global 7000 is slated to enter service during the second half of 2018. The flight test program is progressing, with all five planned test vehicles in flight. The flight test program began in November 2016, and has completed more than 1,800 hours of flight testing.
