Bombardier adds Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft



Bombardier Business Aircraft has unveiled two additions to its business jet fleet: the Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft, with class-leading ranges of 5,700 and 6,600 nautical miles, respectively, top speeds of Mach 0.90 and Bombardier´s smooth ride technology, the company said.

The Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft add to the industry´s best large-category family, joining the high-performing Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft, and the unparalleled Global 7000 aircraft.

These new aircraft build on the success of the Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft by offering 500 and 600 nautical miles of additional range, respectively, coupled with an up to 13-per-cent fuel burn advantage, contributing to highly favorable operating costs versus smaller competing aircraft with less range.

Taking total performance to new heights, these aircraft also deliver a range increase of up to 1,300 nautical miles when operating out of hot-weather and high-altitude conditions, thanks to increased thrust and improved fuel efficiency. These aircraft also boast superior agility compared to their closest competitors, with the ability to access airports that others can´t, such as London City.

With over 69,500 employees across four business segments, Bombardier is a global provider of the transportation industry, creating innovative and game-changing planes and trains. News and information are available at bombardier.com or follow on Twitter @Bombardier.
