“Our Think Global strategy and commitment to provide point-to-point global coverage includes providing the best aircraft option for our customers’ intercontinental and transcontinental travel needs, always with guaranteed availability,” Flohr says.

The VistaJet Challenger 350 will be equipped with a jump seat for the cabin hostess, a cabin divider and the latest cabin management system technologies.

For Bombardier, the VistaJet Challenger 350 and Global 8000 orders add more than $1.3 billion to the company’s expanding order book – one of the few among the business jet manufacturers that is growing. Bombardier’s Aerospace backlog in 2012 jumped 38% to $32.9 billion as net orders for its business aircraft almost doubled to 392. Of those, 156 orders came from VistaJet and NetJets in 2012. NetJets this year is further adding to the order book with last month’s contracting including 75 firm orders for the Challenger 350 and options for 125 more. That contract has a total potential value of $5.4 billion.
