The world's third-largest commercial aircraft manufacturer Bombardier Aerospace, a unit of Canadian transportation giant Bombardier Inc, launched two new business jets Saturday, the Global 7000 and Global 8000, further sytrengthening its leadership position in large business aircraft category.

By extending this great aircraft family, we are once again offering a business jet travel experience that is unmatched and ahead of its time,'' said Steve Ridolfi, president of Bombardier Business Aircraft.
The Global 7000 and Global 8000 jets will give our customers the ability to reach more destinations non-stop than ever before, delivering unprecedented levels of performance, flexibility, and comfort. There has never been a better time to ''Be Global'', Ridolfi added.
