NetJets To Be Fleet Launch Customer for Bombardier's Global 8000

The fractional company places a firm $312 million order for four of the ultra-long-range jets.

NetJets has placed a firm order for four ultra-long-range Global 8000s, making the fractional operator the fleet launch customer for Bombardier’s flagship aircraft. The order is valued at $312 million at 2022 list prices.

Additionally, NetJets will convert eight existing orders for Bombardier aircraft to Global 8000s and upgrade the Global 7500s it has on hand to the 8000. Eventually, NetJets will have a fleet of 24 Global 8000 business jets.

The upgrading of NetJets’s Global 7500s to 8000s will occur once the 8000 is certified and Bombardier issues a service bulletin for the conversion, a spokesperson told BJT. The Global 8000 was unveiled in 2022 and features a range of 8,000 nautical miles.
