Flying in Style

Designed to include a luxury stateroom, Bombardier introduces the Global Express XRS

The Global Express XRS from Bombardier has arrived from Canada, boasting one of the most luxurious cabins in the ultra-long-range business jet category, combined with surprising performance that fulfils the desires of even the most sophisticated travelers.

Thanks to the seating arrangements, the aircraft can accommodate from 8 to 19 passengers, with a basic seating plan of 11 passengers. In the mid-cabin area, there is a workstation with all the facilities of the office environment, where the fifth passenger can join in a conference in the double seating area thanks to the swiveling chair.

This model offers unmatchable levels of comfort and productivity, both for the passengers and crew, with a connection times more cities at a greater speed than any other jet in its category.

Bombardier has developed the best cabin in its class by adding more windows allowing far more natural light and better viewing angles. If that weren't enough, an improvement in the cabin pressurization reduces passenger in-flight fatigue enabling them to work more comfortably while traveling.  



Ready to Fly

The XRS can be ready for take off after just 30 minutes' warm-up. The aircraft has a range of up to 6,150 nautical miles (11,390 kilometers) at a cruising speed of Mach 0.85. It can also transport 8 passengers and a crew of 4 for a distance of 5,450 nautical miles (10,093 kilometers) at Mach 0.87, which is faster and further than any other aircraft in its category, at a ceiling height of 51,000 feet (15,545 m), thus connecting Tokyo to New York or Moscow to Los Angeles without any stopovers.

It has the new Enhanced Vision System technology to assist landing at any airport, which helps pilots to navigate at unfamiliar airports.



With a cabin that meets the needs of the most demanding traveler, on a par with the finest hotels in the world, the XRS offers the latest in space, privacy, luxury and comfort. From a well conditioned conference room with his own facilities to a generous independent main cabin, a wide aisle and a crew rest area mean nothing has been left to chance in order to provide the "13 hours-plus" environment.

A group of engineers is responsible for ensuring each detail of the interior configuration of the aircraft, which is delivered pursuant to clients’ needs. These engineers are expert craftsmen who take care of the interiors, from the fine woods through to the leather upholstery.



The numerous improvements are evidence of the greater care for the comfort and the productivity that Bombardier has taken with the XRS. A forward aisle and a spacious and a well-lit private conference room  with all the necessary peace and quiet, independent temperatures in the different zones will greater personal comfort and larger seating compartments for greater freedom of movement.

The greater cabin height and a more comfortable crew area offer benefits, as well as accessible space for luggage, together with its large windows.

The lighting technology in the work area remains fresher for longer, as well as offering an optional humidifier to minimize fatigue and dehydration.


The configuration to the client’s specifications is completed at the modern installations of The Bombardier Completion Center en Montreal using advanced 3-D design software. This includes textures mapping and lowering patterns, a modeling program and an industrial design and interior animation.

The aircraft is certified pursuant to the most rigorous regulations in the world Transport Canada, the FAA and the JAA, which governs certification in Europe, Australia and many other countries.

The model is designed to meet the ETOPS (Extended Twin Engine Operations) requirements, a factor which drastically increases the flexibility and reliability objectives of the aircraft.

The Global Express XRS’s Rolls-Royce BR710 engines have been totally optimized using advanced technology and the infrastructure of the aircraft. The results are a new standard of efficiency, reliability, maintenance and lower operating costs, together with great power and performance. The engines have a consumption of 12% lower than the previous units used in their class and are focused towards a maintenance program pursuant to MSG-3.

Based on the philosophy of “darkened flight deck", the XRS offers its pilots the ideal ergonomic environment with the highly integrated and personalized design afforded by the Honeywell Primus 2000XP avionics suite. The result is spacious distribution that is well organized for maximum productivity, safety and benefits for the pilot and offering many innovative characteristics specifically designed for this aircraft, making it the perfect option for those who want to travel with style.
