NetJets Adds Bombardier Global 8000 to Growing Fleet

NetJets will become the fleet launch customer of the highly-anticipated Bombardier Global 8000 after agreeing a firm order for four of the jets valued at $312m based on 2022 prices.

The agreement, which also sees NetJets convert eight existing orders into Global 8000s, will eventually see NetJets build a 24-strong fleet of the industry-leading jet. Some of that fleet will be converted Global 7500 jets that NetJets already owns or has on order.

Already offering one of the most diverse fleets in the business, this new deal helps secure NetJets’ position in the ultra-long range market as demand for non-stop transcontinental business flights grows. It also continues the rapid growth of the company’s fleet overall, which stands at over 850 jets worldwide.

The Global 8000, which has a list price of $78m, will be the fastest and longest range business jet when it comes into service in 2025.

“The new Global 8000 will help us to continue offering our Owners, specifically our international travelers, the pinnacle in unforgettably personalized experiences aboard the finest ultra-long range aircraft available,” said Patrick Gallagher, NetJets’ president of sales, marketing, and service.

“With inventory sold out through 2023 in the US, we are continuing to invest in further expansion for prospective owners in North America and across the globe. In fact, by the end of 2023, we are proud to share that our worldwide fleet will be approximately 30% larger than it was at the beginning of 2022.”
