Bombardier’s long-range Global 5500 business jet has entered into service following delivery to an undisclosed customer.
“This spacious and efficient aircraft is the ultimate business tool, with the range and access to safely take our customers where they need to be,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Aviation. “The first Global 5500 aircraft delivery is of particular significance for our employees in Wichita, who recently took on the meticulous work of interior completions for the Global 5000 and Global 5500 aircraft.”
The new Global 5500 business jet features Bombardier’s patented Nuage seat, the first new seating architecture in business aviation in 30 years, a 4K-enabled cabin offering the fastest in-flight connectivity, and an intuitive cabin management system that delivers an ultra-high-definition entertainment experience, from Collins Aerospace.
The Global 5500 business jet is also equipped with Bombardier Pũr Air, a sophisticated air purification system available exclusively on Global aircraft. The system’s advanced HEPA filter captures up to 99.99% of allergens, bacteria and viruses, and completely replaces the cabin air with 100% fresh air in as little as one-and-a-half minutes.
