The 2016 MEBAA, Middle East Business Aviation Association, will benefit from a display of Bombardier’s Business Aircraft at the show taking place at Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai, UAE. Taking place from December 6-8, the show will highlight the company’s most advanced jets. On display, the Learjet 75, Challenger 650, Global 5000, and Global 6000 will once again exhibit Bombardier’s global leadership and comprehensive portfolio from the leading provider in the region.
Projecting the future of business for the company in the Middle East, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft Peter Likoray commented, “We expect the Middle East to remain a promising market for business aviation in the next 10 years,” adding, “Our market forecast predicts 350 deliveries valued at $12 billion over the next 10 years, with Medium and Large category aircraft accounting for about 95 per cent of these deliveries.”
The Learjet, long a leader in its class, continues to set the standard with the Learjet 75, offering the only eight-seat double-club layout in business class jets, with flat flooring throughout the cabin, the Bombardier Vision flight deck, and new winglet design enabling Mach 0.81 cruising speeds climbing to a 51,000-foot ceiling with a 2000 nm range.
The most reliable business aircraft, the Challenger 650, provides advanced connectivity and an immersive sound system for passengers, enjoying the widest cabin in its class. Also equipped with the Bombardier Vision flight deck, the Enhanced Vision System, and advanced avionics, the 650 has a 4000 nm range enabling a Dubai to London connection with the lowest operating costs in its class.
The Global Series, both the 5000 and the 6000 are equipped with the fastest inflight connectivity, with the 5000 having the ability to land at airports known for difficult access, with a 5,200 nm range, managing Dubai to Tokyo in one go. The 6000 ups the game with more cabin volume and floor space, and nearly a foot of extra width over others in its class.
Headquartered in Montreal, Canada, Bombardier supplies efficient, sustainable, enjoyable air transport through high end aircraft employing up to the minute technology, materials, and cabin appointments.
