Refurbished Global Express unveiled by VIP Completions


VIP Completions has unveiled a fully refurbished Bombardier Global Express that it recently delivered to an unnamed client.

The cabin includes 10 custom-designed seats upholstered with contrasting premium Garrett leathers and intricate diamond pattern stitchwork, and a divan upholstered in Mademoiselle fabric by Great Plains.

Matte black finish veneer features on wood monuments, achieved in VIP Completions’ new spray booth. Credenza and table tops feature exotic leather inlays in ‘Carbon’ and ‘Croco’, while there is silk/wool blend carpeting by Tai Ping throughout the cabin.

Large-format stone tiles feature in galley and lavatory areas, and there are custom-designed lavatory countertops with a single-slab stone effect and unique vessel sinks in carbon and satin finish plating. The new exterior colour scheme, by Flying Colours, features ‘Starlight Silver’ and ‘Phantom Gray’ mica.

Technological highlights include CMS control via Crestron touchpanels embedded at each seat location and in the galley; a custom Alto audio system calibrated for the cabin using Alto’s MySound optimisation tool; upgraded HD monitors; dynamic RGB lighting; and an onboard Plex media server to provide “virtually limitless” content options.

“We are very proud of this project,” said Ben Shirazi, president, VIP Completions. “This aircraft is truly a work of art. The style is clean, bright and characterised by a minimalist colour palette. It features many unique design elements. We delivered this aircraft to a long-standing valued client and collaborated with her personal designer to deliver an exceptional level of customisation. For example, the divan features a weave and texture that was inspired by the classic Chanel bouclé jacket – one of our client’s fashion trademarks.”

“The CMS and IFE upgrades meet and exceed the calibre of comparable new aircraft entering service today,” Shirazi continued. “The exterior also makes a bold statement, standing out on any ramp and embodying its owner’s sophisticated sense of style. Our team has really set a new standard for grace and elegance in business aircraft completions.”
