Bombardier launches Executive cabin for G7500 and G8000 #NBAA
Bombardier has introduced a new three-workspace interior for the Global 7500 and Global 8000 aircraft, known as the Executive cabin.
Unveiled at NBAA-BACE 2022, the three-suite configuration offers spacious open-office design, intended to enhance productivity in-air. Each workspace stretches 12ft (3.7m) in length, and the cabin has a flexible configuration that can allow various seating options with the Nuage Cube furniture that can be moved and used as a seat, stool or table.
The three workspaces are the Office Suite, the Conference Suite and the C-Suite. The Office Suite is fitted with four seats, each with its own large side table and the most leg room in the aircraft’s class. The Conference Suite features a credenza with an integrated flip-up screen for videoconference and presentation use. The C-suite is designed to host a private business conversation or space to relax.
Other features of the Executive cabin include Soleil circadian-based lighting to combat jet lag, an Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) lighting system and a 4K monitor.
Bombardier said that future buyers can also opt to configure their aircraft with four living spaces if preferred.
“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,” said Éric Martel, CEO and president, Bombardier. Martel added that the Executive cabin further solidifies the company’s position as “the leader in business aviation today”.
Investment costs for the development of the Executive cabin were included in the launch cost of the Global 8000 aircraft earlier this year, according to the company. The Global 8000 is expected to enter service in 2025, with development ongoing.
