Bombardier announced that it delivered its first Challenger 605 aircraft to an undisclosed customer to be operated from Mexico.
“This milestone delivery for the Challenger 605 jet reconfirms this aircraft’s leadership worldwide,” said Fabio Rebello, Regional Vice President, Sales, Latin America, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Challenger series of aircraft, and the Challenger 605 jet in particular, are leaders in their category in Mexico, with a market share of over 48 per cent, and in Latin America, with a 55 per cent market share. The dynamism of the Latin American market and the growing travel requirements of Latin American companies are paving the way for a solid expansion of our fleet in the region,” he added.
In service since January 2007, the Challenger 605 jet builds on the legacy of quality and reliability of its predecessor, the acclaimed Challenger 604 jet, leading its market share segment throughout the world. The Challenger 605 jet can whisk eight passengers and two crew from Toluca to any North American destination, or certain Central American destinations, non-stop in the widest stand-up cabin of any large category business jet available today.
