Twelve Bombardier Challenger 3500 jets ordered

Bombardier, a leading manufacturer of private jets, announced Friday that the company has received a firm order for 12 Challenger 3500 aircraft. The transaction is valued at $326.4 million based on list prices.

Bombardier did not name the customer in a company press release.

“The customer has chosen the super-midsize market leader for its outstanding performance, refined cabin, and sustainably minded features,” the company said in a statement.

Bombardier President and CEO Eric Martel said the aircraft is meeting and exceeding the expectations of its discerning clientele.

“The Challenger 3500 jet is truly a force to be reckoned with, and this order is a clear demonstration that this platform offers the exceptional experience that clients are seeking,” Martel said.

Before announcing the 12-jet order, long-time client Arkasair added a Challenger 3500 business jet to its VIP Air Taxi and charter fleet recently, becoming the first customer of a Challenger 3500 aircraft in Turkey.

The Challenger 3500’s flawless design provides an unparalleled cabin experience and elevates passengers’ comfort with Bombardier’s revolutionary Nuage seats and cutting-edge cabin technology.

With an industry-leading dispatch reliability of over 99.8%, as well as outstanding range and runway performance, the Challenger 3500 aircraft offers the ultimate package, with access to the most remote locations while delivering Bombardier’s signature smooth ride from takeoff to landing.

Deliveries of the 12 jets are set to begin in the second half of 2025.

With more than 900 business jets of the Challenger 300 series in service worldwide, the Challenger 3500 aircraft builds on the excellent track record of the Challenger family.
