To enhance passenger comfort and wellness, the G280 can now be equipped with Gulfstream's plasma ionisation clean air system. The system has been proven in lab tests to neutralise pathogens and allergens.

A series of additional avionics features are available, including SiriusXM graphical weather with real-time updates; dual electronic charts to help create a paperless flight deck and reduce pilot workload; a surface management system, which provides aural and visual cues to alert pilots to unsafe ground and arrival operations and helps prevent runway incursions; and access to vertical weather and predictive windshear information.

The G280 is certified for steep approaches and has recently been certified to the FAA's Stage 5 noise standards. The cabin offers multiple floorplan options and seats up to 10 passengers with a four place conference table. It features Gulfstream's exclusive cabin management and high-definition entertainment systems, 19 large oval windows, access to baggage at high altitudes and multiple connectivity options.
