Gulfstream has produced over 2,000 business jets since the late 1950s. In 2020 it celebrated the maiden flight of its G700, which the company claims has the ‘tallest, widest and longest cabin in the industry’. Deliveries of the jet to paying customers are set to begin in 2022.
As well as the security benefits, buyers are attracted to the intrinsic benefits of ownership, and travel with people that they know rather than ‘300 they don’t’, says Esling, regional senior VP of international sales. Esling has forecast substantial growth in demand from Africa, after a boost in Russian sales in 2006, which was followed by an uptick in interest among Chinese clients.
