With one of the widest cabins in the heavy jet class, the Bombardier Global 5000 is renowned for its efficiency, speed and comfort.

  • The Bombardier Global 5000 was introduced in 2005, based on the Global Express but with a shorter cabin and decreased range.
  • Despite its lesser range, the Global 5000 can still fly for about nine hours and complete non-stop transatlantic flights and routes like Dubai to Paris.
  • The cabin of a Bombardier Global 5000 is typically configured to seat 13 or 14 passengers.
  • While the baggage hold isn’t as large as some of its competitors, the Global 5000 has enough room for all 13 passengers to bring an item of luggage.
  • Production of the Bombardier Global 5000 ceased in 2020 following the delivery of the Global 5500.

Given its range, performance, cabin size and layout, the Global 5000 is a very cost-effective charter option for those needing to fly long distances with multiple passengers – especially when compared with other heavy or ultra-long-range heavy jets.

Interior design

Not only does the Bombardier Global 5000 boast one of the widest cabins in the heavy jet class, but with about 1.9 metres of headroom, even the tallest passengers can stand up and move around without needing to crouch. With ample space in the cabin for 13-14 passengers and a layout that’s perfect for meetings, entertainment, dining and relaxation, the cabin is a big draw for charter customers.

The main seating area has three sections: a four-chair club; a conference grouping on the left and credenza on the right in the mid-cabin; and a stateroom with two facing chairs on the left and a three-seater divan on the right. Some aircraft have been customised with three individual chairs in the mid-cabin and/or two three-seater divans towards the tail. 

The rear zone is separated by a physical partition, giving passengers more privacy, while lavatories at the front and back of the aircraft help with separating passengers and crew. 

The Global 5000’s baggage compartment can be accessed throughout your flight.

Interesting facts

  • The cabin is extremely quiet, with cruise flight sound levels at 52 decibels – similar to a regular conversation or a working fridge.
  • The Global 5000’s cabin is roomier than competitors like the Gulfstream G450 and Dassault Falcon 900EX, with its cross-section (just over 8 ft at centerline), seating area (about 27 ft long), and headroom (6ft 3in) among the best in its class.
  • Able to perform on shorter runways and steep approaches, the versatile Global 5000  appeals to those who don’t regularly require the range of a Bombardier Global XRS.

Technological features

The Global 5000 is fitted with two Rolls-Royce BR710A2-20 turbofan engines, mounted at the sides of the rear fuselage.

Inside is a six-screen Honeywell Primus 2000XP EFIS suite, updated with flat-panel Rockwell Collins Fusion avionics from 2012. A unique combination of features, such as a synthetic vision system on the head-up display and a MultiScan weather radar, enhances situational awareness at any time and in any weather. The industry-leading flight deck’s ergonomics and aesthetics give pilots comfort and control for a more efficient flight experience.


Bombardier started developing the Global Express in the early 1990s. The long-range business jet was announced at the NBAA convention in October 1991, with the programme launched in December 1993.

The first prototype made its maiden flight in October 1996 and Canadian certification was granted in July 1998, followed by European and U.S. certification shortly after. The Global Express entered service in July 1999.

The Global 5000 was announced in October 2001, launched in February 2002 and first flew in March 2003. It was introduced in April 2005 and upgraded three years later to increase its performance and range. Avionics were updated in 2012 and the current Bombardier Vision flight deck is one of business aviation’s most advanced avionics suites.


Bombardier Aviation (formerly Bombardier Aerospace) manufactures business, commercial and specialised aircraft. The company began with the acquisition of several established aviation companies, starting with Canadair in 1986 and followed by Short Brothers in 1989, Learjet in 1990 and Boeing subsidiary De Havilland Aircraft of Canada in 1992.

Following commercial aviation partnerships with Chinese state-owned manufacturer Comac and multinational aerospace corporation Airbus, Bombardier eventually sold de Havilland and its aerostructures division to focus solely on business aircraft.

Headquartered in Montreal, Canada, today Bombardier has over 60,000 employees and is a leading global manufacturer of aircraft and trains with sites in 25 countries.


A newer Bombardier Global 5000 costs around $50.40 million (USD). An older pre-owned model can be priced from $28 million.
