Impressive short takeoff and unmatched landing distances in its class, coupled with slow approach speeds come together in the Globalaircraft to give customers greater access to more of the world’s most challenging airfields and business hubs—including London City Airport. Global aircraft offer an unrivalled passenger experience featuring the industry’s original, class-leading wide cabin and Bombardier WAVE (Wireless Access Virtually Everywhere), the fastest worldwide* onboard connectivity solution.
