Bombardier announced a firm order for 20 Challenger 3500 business jets to a customer who wishes to remain confidential. This is Bombardier’s largest business jet transaction of 2021, representing a value of $534 million U.S., based on current list pricing.
“This significant order comes just days after the unveiling of the Challenger 3500 business jet, quickly reinforcing the supremacy of this platform in the super mid-size market. The new Challenger 3500 aircraft is ideally suited to meet a growing demand for business travel,” said Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Sales, New Aircraft, Bombardier. “It offers an unmatched combination of performance, advantageous operating costs, cabin experience, innovation and a smooth ride – the perfect package for fleet operators, corporate flight departments and individual customers, including those looking to enter the business jet market.”
An evolution of the best-selling Challenger 350 aircraft, the Challenger 3500 business jet was unveiled on Sept. 14. This new business jet boasts a redesigned interior featuring the patented Nuage seat, a masterpiece of comfort inherited from Bombardier’s large-cabin Global aircraft. The stunning new passenger spaces offer a host of new technologies, including the industry’s first voice-controlled cabin, wireless chargers throughout the cabin, and the only 24-inch, 4K displays in its class. The altitude in the cabin is 31% lower than that of its predecessor.
