Andrew Svoboda CEO of Phenix Jet Cayman, commented: “We are thrilled to have set these remarkable world speed records, showcasing the unparalleled capabilities of the dedicated Phenix Jet Cayman operations team and the remarkable Bombardier Global 7500. These achievements underscore our commitment to providing our clients with exceptional service and groundbreaking experiences.  We are thankful for the collaboration with Bombardier and this amazing G7500 aircraft in delivering the ultimate comfort and most efficient travel experience possible in the world today.” 

Emmanuel Bornand, Vice President, International Sales, Bombardier stated: “With the Bombardier Global 7500 aircraft, customers don’t ever have to compromise between opting for outstanding speed or top field performance. This incredible aircraft simply offers both. Thanks to the design excellence of its sophisticated Smooth Flĕx Wing, the Global 7500 delivers the best of two opposite worlds: high cruise speed with the ability to operate from very short and challenging runways to always be closer to destinations regardless of weather conditions.”

Phenix Jet has been recognized as the best Charter Operator and the Operator with the Largest Charter Fleet in Asia by the Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA) and Asian Sky Group respectively, highlighting its prominence and reputation in the industry. With its remarkable steep approach capabilities, the Global 7500 is the largest business aircraft to access London City Airport and Gstaad Saanen in the Swiss Alps, providing a testament to the short-field performance and capabilities of this aircraft – as well as its ability to operate at high altitudes and hot temperatures.
