The new cabin design is called, aptly enough, the Executive cabin. Bombardier developed the cabin in response to customer demand for an environment usable as an open workplace.
The three-zone cabin is divided into areas intended to serve as an office suite, a conference suite, or a confidential area that’s capable of serving as a private conference room. The office seating area has four of the company’s plush Nuage seats; the other areas can be customized with other seating options. Each work zone is 12 feet long and provides what Bombardier calls “unprecedented flow and leg room.”
An innovative addition to the executive cabin is the new Nuage Cube, a square leather-covered cube that can be moved around the cabin and used as a footrest, seat, stool, or small table. These are stored under a credenza for takeoff and landing.
In another announcement, Bombardier promoted a new certified pre-owned program for Global and Challenger aircraft. Participating airplanes are given new paint and interior, modern cabin and cockpit upgrades, a one-year warranty, and enrollment in Bombardier’s Smart Parts maintenance program.
In addition, the company emphasized that three new service centers had been opened this year—in Singapore; Melbourne, Australia; and London’s Biggin Hill Airport. Yet another service center, at the Miami-Opa Locka Airport—is set to open on October 31.
