Bombardier has unveiled its Executive cabin for the Global 7500 and Global 8000 aircraft, featuring an open office concept and spacious three workspace interior designed to maximise corporate collaboration, productivity and networking with fellow passengers. With three workspaces, each 12 ft in length, the Executive cabin offers unprecedented flow and leg room, enabling teams to creatively utilise space to remain productive in flight and rested on arrival for meetings or events.
The Executive cabin also introduces novel configuration and seating options, including the Nuage Cube, a versatile piece of furnishing that during flight can be moved about the cabin and used as a seat, stool or small table. The cabin adds to the class-defining features of the Global 7500 and Global 8000 aircraft, such as the industry's smoothest ride, cutting-edge cabin innovations, top speed and best runway performance. Potential customers of the two aircraft can also opt to configure them with four living spaces if preferred.
“With the introduction of the new Executive cabin, Bombardier once again is showcasing that our team is second to none when it comes to continuously improving cabin design on its world-renowned and record-setting aircraft, further solidifying its position as the leader in business aviation today,” says president and CEO Éric Martel. “The new Executive cabin provides Global 7500 and Global 8000 customers with the productivity configuration they need to transform their aircraft into the ultimate business tool, the most impressive corporate purpose-built business jets in the skies today.”
Comfort and connectivity are essential elements of the design and the three workspaces offer their own unique attributes. An Office Suite is equipped with four Nuage seats and features the most leg room in its class; each seat boasts its own large side table for a highly efficient workspace. The Conference Suite is designed to maximise productivity with conference grouping opposite an ultra-large credenza with an integrated flip up monitor, the perfect videoconference or presentation option. And finally, to facilitate confidential conversations and for added privacy and tranquility, the C-Suite provides an ideal location to review a presentation, host a private conversation or take a moment to relax and freshen up following a long journey.
Both three and four suite configurations will also incorporate a Soleil circadian-based cabin lighting system to help combat jet lag; revolutionary cabin entertainment control and connectivity via the intuitive nice Touch CMS and OLED touch dial; Bombardier's l'Opéra directional audio sound system and available 4K monitor.
The Global 7500 has set the standard as the industry's most immaculate business jet and with the Global 8000 aircraft, Bombardier has introduced a flagship for a new era. Introduced earlier this year at EBACE, the Global 8000 is the world's fastest and longest-range purpose-built business jet, crafted with the industry's healthiest cabin for safety, comfort and performance. It has an industry-leading range of 8,000 nm, lowest cabin altitude and a top speed of Mach 0.94; a blend of outstanding performance married with the smoothest ride. It is expected to enter service in 2025, and for now development is ongoing and the programme is progressing to plan.
Investment costs for development of the Executive cabin were included in the launch cost of the aircraft earlier this year.
