Bombardier’s Challenger 350 Aircraft Was Most Delivered Business Jet In 2018

Captured 58 Per Cent Of The Super Mid-Size Segment

Bombardier’s best-selling Challenger 350 business jet continued to outperform the competition in 2018 as the world’s most delivered business aircraft, leading in the super mid-size segment deliveries. As detailed in the General Aviation Manufacturers Association’s (GAMA) annual shipment and billings report published in the first quarter of 2019, Bombardier also led deliveries in the super mid-size segment for a second consecutive year with a total of 60 Challenger 350 aircraft, representing 58 percent of deliveries in the super mid-size segment.

Bombardier also delivered 23 of its large-segment Challenger 650 business jets in 2018, and the first in a much-anticipated string of Global 7500 business jet deliveries expected to follow in 2019. The GAMA report revealed a 3.8 percent jump in overall business jet deliveries for the year.

“This is the second consecutive year that our best-selling Challenger 350 business jet has led the pack in the super mid-size segment and in business jet deliveries worldwide across all segments,” says Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Marketing. “With its unmatched reliability and economics, unrivaled cabin comfort and ultra-smooth ride, this aircraft offers customers an unbeatable value proposition. As business jet shipments show continued strength, we are confident that the Challenger 350 business jet will remain the leading choice of knowledgeable and experienced operators across the globe.”

This latest success builds upon a remarkable tradition of leadership for the popular Challenger 300 platform. In the last decade, the Challenger 300 series aircraft accounted for more deliveries than any other business jet platform in the industry. The tried and true Challenger 300 aircraft series continues to maintain a brisk pace of deliveries, surpassing the 700-delivery mark worldwide in 2018.

Challenger 350 aircraft: Designed with a no-compromise approach, the Challenger 350 aircraft effortlessly blends powerful performance and sleek styling to deliver a class-leading private jet experience. Industry-leading connectivity, immersive sound and ergonomically-positioned touch screens are seamlessly integrated to create an intuitive and incomparable cabin experience. Paired with impressive high-performance attributes, the Challenger 350 aircraft is designed to access challenging airfields, climb faster and cruise efficiently while providing a smooth ride.

The Challenger 350 jet boasts class-defining performance, a true seats-full, tanks-full, 3,200 NM range capability and can connect Los Angeles to Honolulu, Los Angeles to Anchorage, or Los Angeles to New York, while delivering a smooth ride at the lowest direct operating costs in its category.
