More about the Global 6000
The Bombardier Global 6000 is categorized as a long-range business jet and is a derivative of the Global Express. Originally known as the Global XRS, the business jet was renamed in 2011 to be more consistent with other jets in the Global family. The Global 6000 entered service officially in late 2005 and was an all-around improvement over its predecessor, the Global Express. The most notable attributes of the Global 6000 are its impressive range and spacious cabin. In fact, Bombardier has stated that this aircraft has the largest cabin in its class, with impressive dimensions of 48′ 4″ cabin length, 8′ 2″ cabin width, and 6′ 3″ cabin height. The Global 6000 offers a lot of floor space, cabin volume, and cargo space. Private travellers will appreciate the additional legroom and freedom of movement for long-distance flights.
Key Features of the Global 6000
Regardless of the altitude, cabin pressure is maintained at a comfortable 4,500-foot level. The Global 6000 also has numerous other improvements over the Global Express. These include additional windows to facilitate a more naturally lit atmosphere, LED lighting, a larger baggage area, and a crew resting area for long flights. This aircraft has been designed to be a comfortable 12-hour-plus flight environment, and has Wi-Fi access. Multiple configurations are available to optimize space for the purpose at hand including a private stateroom and galley. The Global 6000 is ideal for VIPs, executives, and private travellers who have very high standards.
