Bombardier has delivered another EASA-registered Challenger 350 aircraft to a European-based customer. The aircraft will be operated by International Jet Management, an aircraft management and charter company located in Vienna, Austria. The Challenger 350 aircraft joins the current fleet of business jets managed by International Jet Management, which also include Bombardier’s Learjet and Global aircraft models.
“We are thrilled that Bombardier’s new Challenger 350 business jet will join the fleet of aircraft operated by International Jet Management,” said Simon Burrows, Regional Vice President, Sales, Western Europe, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “We are sure the Challenger 350 aircraft’s outstanding cabin design and upgraded avionics and engines will provide customers with an experience that exceeds all expectations.”
The Challenger 350 aircraft received full type certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) on September 2, 2014.
“Given the proven reliability and our excellent experience with the Challenger 300 aircraft, International Jet Management is very pleased to be operating the new Challenger 350 business jet in Europe,” said Felix Feller, CEO and founder of International Jet Management. “With its well-equipped cabin and enhanced performance, we are excited about the demand for the new Challenger 350 aircraft.”
For maintenance, overhaul and repair services, IJM and Lufthansa Bombardier Aviation Services (LBAS) signed an agreement.
