Bombardier has received a $65m order from Canada's London Air Services (LAS) for five Learjet 75 aircraft, making LAS the first Canadian launch customer for the jets.
London Air Services president and chief executive officer Wynne Powell said: "The new jet will be a great complement to our existing fleet of Bombardier business aircraft."
The increased thrust of the Honeywell TFE731-40BR engines powering the Learjet 75, will allow the aircraft to deliver enhanced performance and offer better takeoff field length performance.
According to the aircraft maker, the new systems will also provide weight savings gain, while the aircraft's new canted winglets enhance aerodynamic efficiency, delivering 9% further improvement in field performance under hot and high conditions, while also providing a 4% fuel efficiency enhancement.
With a maximum range of 2,000nm, the aircraft cruises at speeds of up to Mach 0.75, can carry four passengers and two crew members, as well as offer a range of about 1,950nm with eight passengers.
Similar to the Learjet 85 aircraft's tyling and technology, the Learjet 75 cabin offers enhanced comfort and its full executive seating and advanced connectivity options are have been designed to provide improved convenience.
Bombardier said that the aircraft's vision flight deck features include Garmin G5000 digital avionics suite, which is claimed to offer pilots a unique level of control and comfort.
The charter service provider currently operates a fleet that consists of five Learjet 45 XR aircraft, one Challenger 604 aircraft, two Challenger 605 jets and a Global 7000 business jet, which will be delivered in 2017.
