The Learjet 70 entered service in 2013 as a replacement to the older Learjet 40. Although it is hardly different from an outside perspective, the fuselage is identical, the aircraft underwent major improvements, most notably the addition of new engines and winglets that improve the overall performance and efficiency. A reduction of about 5% of the fuel consumption translates into an extended range and lower operating costs.
With an autonomy over 3800 kilometers, the Learjet 70 can fly direct from Baku to Bern or from Denver to Nassau. The comfortable cabin has been refitted with top-notch technology including an iPod interface, touch-screens and Ethernet backbone. With this new addition to their fleet, Bombardier is definitely consolidating its position on the Super Light Jets market.
