VistaJet, a private aviation firm, recently unveiled a brand-new addition to its fleet: the Bombardier Global 7500. VistaJet's newest jet, called the "Ferrari of the Skies," allows passengers to fly farther than other jets allow, with a range of 7,700 nautical miles. It is believed to be one of the world’s fastest long-haul aircraft.

The Global 7500s allows visitors to fly private jets on routes such as Singapore to San Francisco and New York to Hong Kong, which was previously unheard of in private aviation.

"Passengers can fly long-haul on the Global 7500 to 187 countries globally with VistaJet, giving them access to 96 percent of the world and some of the most difficult-to-reach places in a single journey," said Éric Martel, president and CEO of Bombardier. "It flies higher (up to 51,000 feet) than commercial planes, where the air is thinner, allowing the plane to fly quicker while consuming less fuel."

Each plane is outfitted with the largest aircraft cabin available on a private jet, ensuring that passengers enjoy opulent surroundings. It's the only business aircraft with four living areas, including a private bedroom, a spacious galley, and a living room with a table for six people. It also has deep-reclining seats, a sophisticated air purification system with an advanced HEPA filter, and Soleil, aviation's first circadian rhythm-based lighting system.

The delivery of the 10th Global 7500 to VistaJet's fleet, as well as the 100th Global 7500 Bombardier has constructed, is a watershed moment for both companies. "As we grow our Global 7500 fleet and satisfy the growing demand for ultra-long-range solutions, we are immensely pleased with this landmark moment with Bombardier," Thomas Flohr, VistaJet's founder and chairman, said in a statement.

Those interested in flying on the long-haul aircraft can join VistaJet or take use of the company's on-demand services. The private aviation firm offers custom-tailored flight subscription plans that include access to the full fleet at a fixed hourly rate, as well as discounted empty-leg trips.
