With wide-open living spaces, refined interior design, and the total performance synonymous with Global business jets, the new Global family is perfectly suited to meet the needs of the most discerning travelers in the region.”
“We are very impressed with Bombardier’s overall product portfolio,” said HK Bellawings’ President Mr. Zhang Yijia. “The new Global 6500 and the unmatched Global 7500 business jets will be an excellent complement to our existing mid cabin capabilities and overall fleet that are unmatched in private aviation.
