Bombardier And VistaJet Celebrate 100th Global 7500

A party in Montreal included a fireside chat with the heads of both companies.

On March 29, Bombardier celebrated its 100th Global 7500 delivery with its largest customer, VistaJet, which has taken 10 of the aircraft manufacturer’s flagship business jets so far. BJT sister publication Aviation International News visited Bombardier's Montreal Laurent Beaudoin Completion Centre for the event. This is where the company outfits the aircraft after they’re flown from its Toronto assembly plant, and where customers oversee the interior finishing of their Global 7500, familiarize themselves with them, and take delivery.

French-Canadian singer-songwriter Gabriella Laberge kicked off the party. Then Bombardier vice president of communications Eve Laurier hosted a fireside chat with VistaJet founder and chairman Thomas Flohr and Bombardier president and CEO Eric Martel.
