Delivery of first Challenger 650 to be operated from Germany


Bombardier has delivered its first Challenger 650 to be operated from Germany. The Bombardier business jet fleet in Europe comprises more than 430 in-service aircraft.

“This first German customer delivery of a Bombardier Challenger 650 jet confirms the aircraft’s leadership in Western Europe,” said Christophe Degoumois, vice president of sales for Europe, Russia and CIS, Bombardier Business Aircraft.

“The Challenger aircraft series, and the Challenger 650 jet in particular, are leaders in their category in Europe, with a market share of more than 40%. With the Synthetic Vision System (SVS) offered as baseline, its cabin almost 6in wider than the closest competitor, as well as the latest entertainment and productivity solutions, the Challenger 650 aircraft is the right choice for customers seeking uncompromised performance.”

The Bombardier Business Aircraft Market Forecast, published in May 2016, predicts business aviation industry deliveries of 1,530 aircraft in Europe for the 10-year period covering 2016-2025.

In service since 2015, the Challenger 650 jet builds on the legacy of the Bombardier Challenger aircraft series with a completely redesigned cabin, the Bombardier Vision flight deck, and optimized engine thrust.
