Bombardier has unveiled a new cabin for its Global 5000 and Global 6000 business jets, named the “Premier”.
The new cabin was unveiled on a Global 6000 plane displayed at EBACE.
Business jet customers are increasingly choosing planes on the basis of factors beyond how far they can fly. They want the type of connectivity they have at home or at the office, an elegant interior, a comfortable cabin and a smooth ride.
According to David Coleal, Bombardier Business Aircraft president, their customers’ main priorities are sophistication and cabin comfort. Accordingly, Bombardier’s new cabin offers an advanced cabin management system with Ka-band connectivity.
It features stone and hardwood flooring options, a streamlined galley and hand-stitched seats. The plane’s specially-designed seats incorporate ergonomic features like sculpted backrests, higher armrests and clean, sharp lines.
Taking care of passengers is at the core of the design. According to Brad Nolen, Bombardier’s VP of marketing, the way you can change positions on the seat is what makes it comfortable.
According to Tim Fagan, Bombardier manager of industrial design, seat design needs to be based on human ergonomics and how people change pressure points when they are seated over time.
Having the right seat depth and allowing the feet to touch the floor regardless of the height of a passenger are important for comfort. Designers also need to consider that seats will recline and turn into beds for sleeping.
