Bombardier Business Aircraft announced today that it delivered its first Learjet 75 aircraft to a Brazilian customer. The aircraft joins Bombardier's business jet fleet of 685 Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft in Latin America.

"Learjet aircraft are iconic, rooted in deep pride and based on a history of ingenuity. We are proud a Brazilian customer selected the Learjet 75 for its class-leading performance, smooth ride and most private and quiet cabin," said Stephane Leroy, Vice President, Sales, Latin America, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "The Learjet 75 aircraft is the only business jet in its class to feature a pocket door for reduced noise levels."

Latin America is the third largest market for business aviation deliveries, with Brazil, Argentina, Mexico and Venezuela making up over 80 per cent of the regional fleet. With over 510 Learjet aircraft in Latin America, Learjet customers can enjoy the quietest and most private cabin in the category.

Bombardier introduced a new level of passenger comfort in the Light jet category in 2016 with the introduction of a Learjet 75 aircraft featuring an innovative pocket door design. The pocket door divides the cabin from the entry area and reduces noise levels inside the cabin by up to eight decibels*, while creating a distinct private living space for passengers.

Standing the test of time, the Learjet 75 aircraft continues to set the standard by bringing large jet features to the most trusted light jet platform. In June 2017, Bombardier Business Aircraft celebrated a historic milestone in business aviation - the delivery of the 3,000th Bombardier Learjet business jet manufactured. The aircraft was also the 100thLearjet 75 jet to be delivered.
