Bombardier has sealed a $2.2 billion order for 38 business jets from an undisclosed customer.

The deal comprises 28 Global aircraft and 10 Challenger 605s, Bombardier said in a statement.

It adds that the $2.2 billion figure is based on 2013 list prices.

“Bombardier’s Global jets are designed to feature superior speed, cabin volume, range and technology to offer passengers the ultimate business jet experience,” says the company.

“The Global aircraft family uniquely covers the large, ultra long-range category with four aircraft models and addresses the increasing needs of business jet travellers and operators to rapidly link key international city pairs non-stop.”

The smaller Challenger 605 can carry 12 passengers and three crew from New York to London nonstop, it adds.
