NetJets place biggest ever Bombardier order

There has been some good news over in Northern Ireland. The private aviation company NetJets has places an order with Bombardier Aerospace for at least 100 Challenger Jets worth a minimum $2bn and potentially worth $7bn.

The order by NetJets is the biggest in the companies history and also in the history of private aviation. Bombardier is the biggest manufacturing  firm in Northern Ireland who employ around 5,000 people.

NetJets is the largest provider of private planes in the world and the operator returned to profitability at the end of 2011. Thank you Mr. Buffett!
