Bombardier Rolls Out First NetJets Global 6000
Bombardier Aerospace and NetJets celebrated the rollout of the fractional provider’s first Global-series jet on January 31, a Global 6000 (neé XRS). Last March, NetJets placed an order for 50 Globals worth $2.8 billion, as well as options for 70 more, breaking the fractional provider’s tradition of buying only Gulfstreams for its large-cabin fleets. NetJets’ Global 6000s, to be configured for up to 13 passengers, will feature an aft-cabin stateroom and full-service galley. NetJets’ firm order includes 30 ultra-long-range Global 5000s and 6000s, with deliveries set to begin in the fourth quarter; and 20 extended-range Global 7000s and 8000s, for delivery starting in 2017.
