Compared to the former Global 6000 model, the new Global 7500 has additional living space, enhanced performance for takeoff and landing, and high-speed cruise to offer an even more pleasant flight.

With business jets, flights can be freely arranged to areas without scheduled flight service, which greatly reduces travel times and provides added security. Business jets function as a tool for businesses by maximizing the valuable time of executives and other flyers. Business jets also reduce the risk of infection and minimize the physical strains of travel, which is an added benefit in light of the recent importance of countermeasures against the spread of infection. These advantages make business jets a top choice for a wide range of clients including executives, international businesspersons, government officials, and athletes. Since the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, inquiries on business jets have tripled.
Sojitz will continue to diversify its menu of offerings to include new aircraft and services to meet the needs of the business jet segment, with the aim of expanding Japan’s business jet market and increasing the convenience of air travel.
