Bombardier Celebrates its 100th Aircraft Delivery into the VistaJet Fleet

- VistaJet's 100th Bombardier aircraft, an all-new Global 6000 business jet, has entered service

- VistaJet's current fleet of more than 60 aircraft is comprised exclusively of mid- and long-range Bombardier business jets

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND--(Marketwired - May 23, 2016) - Bombardier Business Aircraft and VistaJet today celebrated an important milestone as the private jet company officially welcomed the 100th Bombardier business jet into the fold. The occasion was marked by a ceremony at the 2016 European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva.

The 100th Bombardier aircraft to be delivered to VistaJet's modern fleet is a Global 6000 business jet, which entered service earlier this year.

"VistaJet operates the world's largest privately-owned fleet of Bombardier business aircraft," said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "We are extremely pleased to celebrate this milestone with one of our most valued customers, and we look forward to the ongoing role our aircraft will play in VistaJet's bright future."

VistaJet's existing fleet of more than 60 Bombardier Challenger and Global aircraft provide exceptional standards of quality, style and service along with point-to-point global coverage for the company's expanding worldwide customer base.

"This is a huge milestone in the history of VistaJet and evidence of just how far our company has come. Over the past 13 years, we have invested billions in modern and efficient Bombardier aircraft. Our fleet has grown from just five jets in 2006 to more than 60 today. In 2006, VistaJet typically served 30 per cent of the globe. Now we regularly serve over 90 per cent of countries worldwide with one-way pricing," said Thomas Flohr, Founder and Chairman of VistaJet. "As our worldwide growth continues, we look forward to adding more Bombardier business aircraft to our fleet."
