This might sound strange, but one of life’s great luxuries is not having to think. Not in an anti-intellectual way. No, this is about trust—the kind that’s so genuine, so complete, it offers true peace of mind. Bombardier’s Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft inspire that kind of trust. Like the rest of the Global family platform, they are reliable and proven aircraft. When the Global 6500 entered into service in October of 2019, it set a new standard for design, comfort, performance and personalization; once your cabin’s been customized to your liking, you won’t have to think about a thing. Now that’s true luxury.
Strong Silent Type
Let’s start with their unmatched performance. The ranges for the Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft—5,900 and 6,600 nautical miles respectively—are best in class, connecting you nonstop to business hubs and remote destinations like never before. They’ll get you to your destination faster, too, reaching top speeds of Mach 0.90 thanks in part to their brand-new Rolls-Royce Pearl 15 engines. What’s more, because of their superior field performance, you’ll effortlessly access more challenging airfields, like London City Airport, where some others can’t venture.
No matter the distance or approach, it’s going to be a smooth ride. Both aircraft feature the next-generation Global wing, whose re-profiled trailing edge and new flaps are as flexible as they are aerodynamic. The result: a smoother ride—and perhaps the best night’s sleep in business aviation
The cabins of the Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft are portraits of comfort: spacious, inviting and thoughtfully designed. Each aircraft boasts the widest cabin in its class. The kitchen introduces new cabinets, countertops and, on the Global 6500 jet, high-end appliances that can accommodate fine dining, last-minute cravings and everything in between.
The kitchen gives way to the Club Suite, a space dedicated to those who travel for business and pleasure, and the Conference Suite, where you’ll break bread surrounded by seamless, ergonomic design and new features like the game-changing Nuage seating system. Be sure to check out the new Nuage chaise, a lounge chair that converts into a flat surface for sleeping or banquet-style dining around the table.
The Private Suite is your sanctuary. Featuring two patented deep-recline Nuage seats, a three-place berthable divan and a state-of-the-art 4K bulkhead monitor—optionally equipped with the industry’s fastest in-flight internet connectivity—this fully customizable space is pure escapism.
Finally, the jet's advanced air management system can provide 100 percent fresh air and optimized pressurization to make the cabin feel like a low-altitude environment, which can help curb the effects of long hauls and jet lag.
The Global 5500 and the Global 6500 aircraft are welcome new additions to Bombardier's esteemed Global family. Step inside a world that knows no compromise. Sit back, relax and forget to think. Enjoy this next chapter of Bombardier's family of Global aircraft.
