Bombardier Launches New Aircraft

Bombardier has launched the CRJ550, the first triple-class 50-seat aircraft in the world.

 The CRJ550 is a new CRJ Series aircraft model with a new type certificate based on the CRJ700. United Airlines is the launch customer of the new plane.

“The new CRJ550 model is the only solution in North America that can replace the existing fleet of ageing 50-seaters, a market of over 700 aircraft,” said Fred Cromer, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “It offers improved passenger experience with ample on-board storage for carry-on bags and more passenger living space. This is one more example of how we are focusing on creating value for our customers and a very important endorsement from United in regards to the CRJ platform.”

The CRJ550 enjoys cockpit commonality with the CRJ Series, from the CRJ200 to the CRJ900.

The aircraft will feature a self-serve beverage and snack station.

United expects that its regional partner GoJet will begin operating the CRJ 550 in the second half of this year – subject to agreement on final terms and conditions – on select routes from Chicago, O'Hare followed by Newark/New York (read more).
