The Global Express is a large cabin, 6,000 nm range business jet designed and manufactured by Bombardier Aviation. Announced in October 1991 at the NBAA convention, the programme was launched in December 1993. The first prototype performed its maiden flight from Toronto on 13 October, 1996 and it received its Canadian type certification on 31 July, 1998. European and US approvals followed shortly afterwards. The Global Express entered service in July 1999.

The Global Express XRS is an improved version of the original Global Express, offering higher cruise speed, increased range and improved cabin layout and lighting. The range increase is achieved by the addition of a 1,486 lb fuel tank at the wing root. It is powered by two Rolls Royce BR710-A2-20 engines each offering 14,750 lb of thrust.

The cabin volume for the Global XRS is 2,140 cubic ft. Typical configuration features 18 passenger seats with three crew. An aft lounge/bedroom can be closed off from the front portion of the cabin and it has its own independent entertainment system and temperature settings. The cabin pressurisation system maintains 4,500 ft cabin altitude while cruising at 45,000 ft.

The Global Express was rebranded as the Global 6000 in May 2011 with production starting in 2012. A maximum duration of 12.5 hours means the Global 6000 can connect Moscow to Los Angeles, London to Singapore and Mumbai to Sydney non stop, although it does feature a system that enables refuelling in less than 15 minutes.
