If you thought a private jet was the ultimate accessory to aspire to, get ready to raise your aspirations even higher.
The largest private jet in the world has just launched, and for a cool £55m, you can be the proud owner of a beast which stretches nearly 39m and has four separate living areas, as well as seating for 19 people.
Bombardier’s Global 7000 business jet has been presented at the National Business Aviation Association trade show, which finished today. The Montreal-based company is dubbing it as an “extension of your home and office”, reports Mail Online, with each of the four rooms adorned with a flatscreen TV and supersized windows, should you prefer to look at the landscape.
There will, of course, also be WiFi, as well as a bathroom and shower.
Bombardier’s promotional photos show the jet made up with a double bed in one ‘room’, an eight-seater sofa in front of the TV in another, and a more conventional flying space, with plush seats.
If you think £55m is out of most high flyers’ reach, think again – Bombardier says that the eight planes currently in production have already been sold, and there’s a waiting list until 2021.
The first eight will make their debut next year, thought the jet has been tested since last year, with over 900 hours already on the clock.
The thirst for flying private shows no sign of abating. Already this year has seen the launch of a £1,750 per month all-you-can-fly scheme, and a £1m plan that allows cardholders to book 225 hours of private flight time.
