Italy-based Air Corporate SRL has placed a firm order for a Bombardier Challenger 3500 and is set to become the first in Europe to offer the super-midsize jet for charter, the Montreal-headquartered business jet manufacturer announced today.
Introduced in September 2021, the Challenger 3500 is the latest in the Challenger 300/350 line but will include features such as an autothrottle and redesigned interior that leans on sustainable materials, cabin technologies such as voice controls, and addition of Nuage seats. Bombardier executives last week said initial deliveries are slated before the end of next month.
“The new Challenger 3500 is the perfect charter solution for Air Corporate SRL and other flight departments, offering a truly seamless corporate travel experience,” said Ettore Rodaro, regional v-p of sales in Europe for Bombardier.
Air Corporate SRL is one of the larger aircraft management firms in Italy, with eight locations in the country.
