MONTREAL, Oct. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As part of NBAA-BACE Media Day, Bombardier leaders, including President and CEO Éric Martel, will outline key in-service milestones on the growing flagship fleet of Global 7500 aircraft, as well as confirm and detail on-track progress for the Global 8000 aircraft’s flight testing.
“We are proud to showcase our strong and diversified portfolio at NBAA-BACE and the progress we are making to grow our second-to-none business jet fleet and services today, all while being prepared for tomorrow through industry-leading innovation and research,” said Martel. “We come to NBAA-BACE after having spent the last few years building a solid and resilient business.

With Global 7500 and Global 8000 jets accounting for almost half of that number, Bombardier has set a solid foundation for its future.”
