Bombardier Challenger 350: most delivered business jet in 2018

The Bombardier Challenger 350 continued to outperform competition in 2018 as the world’s most delivered business jet, leading the industry for the second year in a row.

The 350 jet boasts a true seats-full, tanks-full, 5,926 kilometres range capability and can connect Los Angeles to Honolulu, Los Angeles to Anchorage, or Los Angeles to New York, while delivering a smooth ride at the lowest direct operating costs in its category.

Peter Likoray, senior vice president of worldwide sales and marketing, said: “With its unmatched reliability and economics, unrivaled cabin comfort and ultra-smooth ride, this aircraft offers customers an unbeatable value proposition.”

Likoray added that as business jet shipments show continued growth, the company is confident the Challenger 350 will remain the leading choice for operators across the globe.

In the last decade, the Challenger 300 series aircraft accounted for more deliveries than any other business jet platform in the industry. The aircraft series surpassed the 700 delivery mark worldwide in 2018.

Bombardier also delivered 23 of its large-segment Challenger 650 business jets in 2018, and the first in a much-anticipated string of Global 7500 business jet deliveries expected to follow in 2019.

According to the General Aviation Manufacturers Association’s (GAMA) annual shipment and billings report published in the first quarter of 2019, a 3.8-percent rise in overall business jet deliveries for the year.
