Following an LOI signed at EBACE earlier in 2018, HK Bellawings Jet has firmed up orders for four Global 6500 and two Global 7500 jets. It also has options for 12 Global aircraft. The Hong Kong-based aircraft management company operates a fleet of Challenger and Global types.
Based on current list prices for typically equipped aircraft, the firm order is worth approximately US$370m. This could rise to US$1.142bn with all options exercised.
“We’re thrilled that HK Bellawings Jet has chosen the Global 6500 and Global 7500 aircraft to expand its growing fleet of business jets,” said Peter Likoray, senior vice president, worldwide sales and marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft.
“These industry leading aircraft offer the largest cabins, the longest range and the smoothest ride in their respective classes. With wide-open living spaces, refined interior design, and the total performance synonymous with Global business jets, the new Global family is perfectly suited to meet the needs of the most discerning travelers in the region.”
“We are very impressed with Bombardier’s overall product portfolio,” said Zhang Yijia, president at HK Bellawings Jet. “The new Global 6500 and the unmatched Global 7500 business jets will be an excellent complement to our existing mid cabin capabilities and overall fleet that are unmatched in private aviation. The Global 6500 and Global 7500 aircraft align with HK Bellawings’ rapid development to be a one-stop business aviation solution, empowering us to reach higher and further in the long run.”
The Global 7500 has a full galley and four living spaces. A key feature of the cabin is the new and patented Nuage seat. The aircraft offers a 7,700 nautical mile range.
