Able to fly between any two points in the world with just one stop, the Bombardier Global Express is the original pioneer of ultra-long-range private jets, offering virtually unlimited flight capabilities to corporate and luxury travelers.

When it first hit the market, no other private jet in the world offered a cabin this large, nor could one offer non-stop flights from New York to Tokyo, Paris to Singapore, Los Angeles to Sydney, and similar long-distance, transoceanic routes. Bombardier may have introduced longer range business jet to its Global family, but the Global Express XRS is still the king of long-range jet charters today, offering the range, comfort, and speed of an airliner without the hassle.

Aircraft Details

The interior of the Global Express offers noise-reducing cabin insulation and improved engines that produce less vibration for unmatched comfort during transoceanic flights.

Flexible seating configurations allow between thirteen and nineteen passengers, and the cabin can be divided into thirds for increased privacy. There are two fully-enclosed lavatories available in the cabin, one of which may be equipped with a shower. The cabin is one the most flexible and elegantly appointed of any business aircraft, offering 27 large windows to cabin with natural light and a 100 percent fresh-air system and a low cabin altitude to help reduce fatigue on long flights.

Despite a fairly high maximum takeoff weight, the Global Express needs a 5,820-foot runway to take off at sea level, and 7,880 feet to take off from a runway 5,000 feet above sea level. When carrying less than four passengers, it only needs 2,190 feet of runway to land.

The Global Express XRS certificate designation is BD-700-1A10 while the Global 5000 is BD-700-1A11.
