The Global Express Offers Long Haul Private Jet Charter Flights
The Global Express XRS is a ultra-long-range private jet charter manufactured by Bombardier Aerospace in Toronto Canada. Introduced to the company’s Global Express line in 2003, the XRS is powered by a pair of Rolls-Royce Deutschland BR 10A2-20 turbofan, which allow it to complete both transcontinental and intercontinental missions.
With an impressive range of 6,170 nautical miles, the Global Express flies up to 12 hours without stopping. It can fly from places like:
- Los Angeles to Tokyo
- LA to Sydney, Australia
- Los Angeles to London
To put it another way, you can fly between almost any two points on the planet with just one stop.
Bombardier now markets the XRS as the Global Express 6000, an improved version of the original. It offers upgrades on:
- Cruise speed
- Cabin layout
- Interior lighting
- Cabin pressurization
Cabin Comfort for Long Private Jet Charter Flights
Because of the Global Express’s ultra-long-range capabilities, the designers at Bombardier designed the cabin to be comfortable and well-appointed to keep passengers happy throughout the journey. The cabin features an aft stateroom that includes:
- Full lavatory
In total, the cabin has more than 2,100 cubic feet of space, offering room for up to 19 passengers (it is typically configured to seat eight). It measures:
- 48 feet long
- 8.17 feet wide
- 6.25 feet tall
During a long-range flight, people need to move about, and the Global Express has the space to do it. Plus, for taller passengers, you won’t have to worry about stooping as you stand up to stretch your legs.
Executives travelling on long business trips also need sustenance. The Global Express features a full galley on the port side to cater to all of your meal requests.
Despite its intended use for long-haul flights, the Global Express is surprisingly fast. It features a maximum cruise speed of 562 mph, and a long-range speed of about 540 mph. It is also a quick climber, reaching 37,000 in just 20 minutes.
