Bombardier has announced that its unrivalled Global 7500 business jet has once again flown another mission in excess of 8,000 nautical miles, successfully connecting Sydney and Detroit in one non-stop flight, the longest city-pair in business aviation in history flown by a purpose-built aircraft.

With low tailwinds averaging approximately 20 knots, the multi-award winning Global 7500 aircraft smoothly and effortlessly completed the journey from Sydney, Australia to Detroit, Michigan on October 6, 2019. Point-to-point distance between the two cities is 8,225 nautical miles, eclipsing the 7,990 nautical mile distance between Singapore and Tucson, which the plane previously flew.

“Since entry-into-service, the Global 7500 aircraft continues to go above and beyond expectations, flying farther and farther, setting new benchmarks for exceptional performance and comfort,” said Peter Likoray, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “It’s an incomparable advantage for our customers to know that they can travel great distances in style and ultimate comfort thanks to Bombardier’s signature smooth ride.”

The Global 7500 aircraft provides the industry’s largest and best cabin experience offering a spaciousness that is unique among business jets and features an award-winning interior that includes a full-size multi-functional kitchen space and a stateroom with a permanent bed. Other industry-leading amenities on the Global 7500 aircraft include Bombardier’s patented Nuage seat, designed for maximum comfort and relaxation on long-haul flights thanks to an all-new deep recline position, and the innovative Soleil lighting system, aviation’s first circadian rhythm-based cabin lighting technology featuring the revolutionary Dynamic Daylight Simulation, which can help combat jet lag.
