Bombardier Serves Novak Djokovic as Learjet Brand Ambassador
Bombardier Aerospace today expanded its range to the elite tennis racquet set naming top-ranked champion Novak Djokovic as a Learjet Brand Ambassador. He joins an exclusive list of Bombardier Business Aircraft brand ambassadors including actor and pilot John Travolta, architect Frank Gehry, maestro Valery Gergiev, and classical pianist Lang Lang.
Ranked World No. 1 by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) since July 2011, to date Novak Djokovic has won five Grand Slam singles titles: the 2008, 2011 and 2012 Australian Open, 2011 Wimbledon Championships and the 2011 US Open. In 2011, he became the sixth male player to win three Majors in a calendar year and is the youngest player to have reached the semifinals of all four Grand Slam events, separately and consecutively.
Learjet business aircraft: With over 45 years of history marked by a multitude of performance records, Learjet aircraft are the world's first purpose-built business jets. The creation of inventor Bill Lear, who designed the first Learjet aircraft based on a Swiss fighter-bomber, Learjet aircraft are renowned worldwide for their sleek ramp appeal and favoured by pilots for their handling characteristics and high-performance.
Since acquiring the Learjet Corporation, Bombardier has revitalized both the brand and the product line, bringing to market no less than eight new models, including the new Learjet 85 aircraft.
