“Uniquely global” is how Canadian manufacturer Bombardier promoted their much-anticipated long-range heavy-size jet. The stylish Global 5500 twin-engine, 13-passenger jet is the new standard in international business travel. It is truly a combination flying office and hotel suite that can take you almost anywhere.
The High-flying History of the 5500
Bombardier unveiled the design for the Global 5500 in May 2018. The intent was to build a long-range jet with improved wing design that could handle Mach 0.9 speeds. Since the company already had a successful design with the legendary Challenger 600 series, the 5500 jet went from the drawing board to test flights in less than two years. At an estimated cost of $46 million, the Global 5500 is the pinnacle of long-range flight comfort and technology.
The Global 5500 features the widest cabin in its size-class. Designed with three distinct living spaces, the jet boasts a forward club suite, a conference suite, and an aft lounge suite.
Bombardier has redefined comfort with patented deep-recline Nuage seats. Eat, work, and rest supported in elegant style. The lounge area also has a Nuage chaise – a reclining seat that follows the contours of your body as you relax.
With the first 4K-enabled cabin and fast connectivity, ultra-high-definition entertainment is available at your fingertips. You’ll have the bandwidth for that essential video conference or to stream your favorite movie.
Other cabin amenities include:
- Ample kitchen space, with faucet, drawers, and chilled storage.
- Easy baggage access. Want something from your suitcase? The 5500’s luggage compartment is easily accessible throughout the flight. Everything you need is always within reach.
- Cleaner air. Bombardier uses a sophisticated HEPA filter to capture 99.9% of viruses and allergens. The cabin air with replaced with 100% fresh in 90 seconds. You can breathe easy.
