Bombardier’s largest private jet will soon be ready for private charter.
European private jet firm VistaJet is preparing to take delivery of its second Bombardier Global 7500 in January. It’s the first model that VistaJet’s wealthy clients will be able to charter, and just in time as the world begins to re-open on the heels of positive COVID-19 vaccine news that may bring the pandemic to an end in 2021.
The 7500 is an intercontinental private jet that boasts the longest range of any aircraft in its class. For business or health-conscious travelers, flying non-stop can maximize efficiency and minimize exposure to pathogens while traveling by reducing journey times and eliminating any en-route fuel stops.
Thomas Flohr, chairman and founder of Vista Global, called the plane a “game-changer” for his company in an April interview with Business Insider. He said the aircraft will help VistaJet capture a new segment of ultra-high-net-worth individuals who are turning to private jets for travel during the pandemic.

VistaJet was the first charter operator to acquire the Global 7500, and took delivery of its first model earlier this year. But, as a VistaJet spokesperson told Business Insider, the aircraft was scooped up by one client for dedicated use and isn’t available to the firm’s other clients.
With a second aircraft soon in the fleet, VistaJet plans to offer the ultra-long-range capabilities of the jet to all of its charter customers.
