Montreal-based Bombardier Inc. landed the largest business aircraft sale in its history this week, as VistaJet has signed a deal for up to 142 Global business jets.

The order from VistaJet, a world-leading luxury aviation company and exclusive operator of Bombardier business aircraft, includes firm orders for 56 Global jets and options for a further 86 Global jets at a 2012 US list price value of more than $7.8-billion if all options are exercised. The value of the firm order is approximately $3.1-billion at 2012 list prices.

The firm order comprises 25 Global 5000, 25 Global 6000 and six Global 8000 jets. Deliveries of these aircraft will begin in 2014. The agreement also includes options for 40 Global 5000, 40 Global 6000 and six Global 8000 jets.

“By any standard, this is a historic order for Bombardier. It goes without saying that we are thrilled VistaJet has again chosen to grow their fleet with the industry-leading Global family,” says Steve Ridolfi, president, Bombardier Business Aircraft.

“We welcome VistaJet’s ongoing commitment to global coverage within existing and developing new markets. Our Global aircraft are perfect for VistaJet’s business strategy to deliver the ultimate business jet family to all corners of the world,” he adds.
