Bombardier Unveils Global 5500 and Global 6500 Aircraft

Bombardier has unveiled two additions to its business jet fleet: the Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft.

The two new aircraft have ranges of 5,700 and 6,600 nautical miles, respectively, and top speeds of Mach 0.90.

"Bombardier's two newest Global aircraft are the result of our unrelenting commitment to innovation, excellence and most of all, our desire to deliver unmatched capabilities to our customers," said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "This next generation of performance stems from the winning DNA of our Global family of aircraft, now further enhanced through a newly optimized wing, a fully reimagined cabin and new, purpose-built engines."

The Global 5500 and Global 6500 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% fuel burn advantage.

Taking total performance to new heights, the 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.

Purpose-built Rolls-Royce Pearl engines and a new wing make the Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft cleaner and more efficient. 

The Global 5500 aircraft can connect Sao Paolo and Paris, and Moscow and Los Angeles while the Global 6500 aircraft will be able to connect Hong Kong or Singapore and London, and Toluca and Madrid.

The Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft are expected to enter service at the end of 2019.
