MONTREAL: Bombardier Aerospace has received an order from Australian charter company AVWest for four Global Express XRS jets, a deal that’s worth US$213 million.
The Perth, Australia-based aviation services company owns and operates the Perth Jet Centre and provides charter services and 24-hour ground handling for all types of business aircraft.
Within its current fleet of helicopters and planes, it already owns a Bombardier Challenger 604 and a Global Express XRS.
The Global Express XRS, which is one of Bombardier’s ultra long-range business jets, carries up to eight passengers and four crewmembers, offering non-stop flights between Perth and Honolulu.
AVWest’s Tim Roberts said the order for the additional jets is to meet an increasing demand for flights to Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
