MONTREAL, Oct. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Following the dramatic unveiling of the Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft in 2018 at the European Business Aviation Convention in Geneva, Bombardier debuted less than 18 months later, the all-new Global 6500 aircraft, the latest addition to the award-winning and record-breaking Global family, at NBAA-BACE in Las Vegas, Nevada. Joining the Global 6500 aircraft, is a stellar lineup of Bombardier aircraft on static display, including the industry flagship, Global 7500 aircraft.

“We are proud to present our lineup of extraordinary business jets in Las Vegas, particularly our new Global 6500 and Global 7500 business jets, which redefine the standard in the industry for unparalleled cabin comfort, advanced technology and unrivalled performance,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Aviation. “Game-changing aircraft like these make for an aviation experience that is second to none, and the Bombardier team has set the bar to new heights when it comes to performance and on-time entry-into-service.”

The Pearl 15 engine, the latest addition to Rolls-Royce’s market-leading business aviation engine portfolio, was developed at the Rolls-Royce Centre of Excellence for Business Aviation engines in Dahlewitz, Germany, and was custom-designed with the most advanced technology – including enhanced aerodynamics, blade cooling and advanced engine health monitoring systems – to power the Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft. With the purpose-built engines, advanced wing design and built-in systems redundancy and robustness for which Bombardier Global aircraft are renowned, the aircraft offer a superior safety and a smooth ride to its passengers.

The Global 6500 aircraft offers a stunning redesigned cabin with exclusive features that are as innovative as they are luxurious. The Global 6500 business jet also debuts the Nuage chaise, business aviation’s first and only lounge chair that converts into a flat surface for sleeping or banquet-style dining around the conference grouping table. Within the fluid lines of its exceptionally crafted architecture is a marvel of furniture engineering, meticulously designed to maximize comfort in flight. Bombardier's patented Nuage seat is also exclusive to the new Global aircraft family. With its distinctive technology, the Nuage seat is ideally suited for long-range flights.

The new aircraft builds on the success of the Global 6000 aircraft by offering 600 nautical miles of additional range, coupled with an up to 13-per-cent fuel burn advantage, contributing to highly favorable operating costs versus smaller competing aircraft with less range. The Global 6500 aircraft can connect New York to Dubai, and Hong Kong to London. The aircraft also boasts superior agility, with the ability to access airports that others can’t, such as London City.
