Bombardier Learjet Delivers First Learjet 60 XR Aircraft to Mexico-Based Customer

Bombardier Aerospace today announced that it delivered its first Learjet 60 XR aircraft to a customer based in Mexico on March 16, 2010. This aircraft joins the growing fleet of Learjet aircraft operating in Mexico and Latin America.

“This milestone delivery for the Learjet 60 XR jet confirms this aircraft’s expanding international presence, said Fabio Rebello, regional vice president, Sales, Latin America, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Learjet 60 XR jet is perfectly suited for the requirements of our customers in Latin America and the unparalleled performance of our Learjet aircraft family makes us a market leader in Mexico,” he added.

In service since July 2007, the Learjet 60 XR aircraft is a proven model of performance, comfort, value and versatility in the midsize jet market segment. It delivers a high cruise speed of Mach 0.81 (861 km/hr), superior climb capabilities, proven fuel efficiency and low direct operating costs per nautical mile*. The jet’s higher operating altitudes – certified to 51,000 ft (15,545 m) – translate to time savings due to better winds, less traffic and less turbulence.

The Learjet 60 XR aircraft can fly from Toluca, Mexico to Toronto, Canada non-stop with four passengers and two crew*. It is now available with the Signature Series interiors, which combine bold design elements with increased functionality to bring the large cabin concept to a midsize jet.
