Double delivery for Bombardier
Bombardier Business Aircraft recently achieved two firsts in the South American market. The Canadian OEM delivered its first Learjet 75 to a Brazilian customer, and its first Challenger 350 to an Argentinian customer. Both aircraft join the company’s active fleet of 685 aircraft in Latin America, of which over 500 are Learjets.
According to a company statement, Latin America is the third largest market for business aviation deliveries, with Brazil, Argentina, Mexico and Venezuela making up over 80% of the regional fleet.

Bombardier introduced a new level of passenger comfort in the Light jet category in 2016 with the introduction of a Learjet 75 aircraft featuring an innovative pocket door design. The pocket door divides the cabin from the entry area and reduces noise levels inside the cabin by up to eight decibels*, while creating a distinct private living space for passengers.
Commenting on the first delivery of the Challenger 350, Bombardier Business Aircraft Latin America Sales VP Stephane Leroy said that “the Challenger 350 aircraft is the right choice for customers in Argentina seeking to access challenging airfields, climb faster, and cruise efficiently while enjoying a smooth ride.”
