Posted 27 September 2016 · Add Comment

Bombardier has announced all existing Global aircraft customers can take advantage of ultra-high-speed Internet access across the globe.

Awarded a supplemental type certificate, Bombardier WAVE (Wireless Access Virtually Everywhere), the fastest worldwide onboard connectivity solution, can now be installed on all Bombardier Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft, as well as previous Global aircraft models as a retrofit.

"Existing Global aircraft customers can install the system at any of our Bombardier Service Centres, and take advantage of an ultra-high-speed in-flight connectivity and productivity solution to make the most efficient use of their time onboard," said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, vice president and general manager, customer experience, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "Global customers can benefit from the Service Centre Network's comprehensive capabilities and flexibility, all while maximising their downtime by pairing their installation with their next aircraft maintenance event.”

Global aircraft offer an unrivalled passenger experience featuring the industry's original, class-leading wide cabin and now Bombardier WAVE - the business aviation industry's first Ka-Band ultra-high-speed Wi-Fi service available in flight. This reinforces the Global aircraft family's position as the leading choice for business travel providing ultra-high-speed Internet access, consistent performance and seamless coverage across the globe.

The in-service Global fleet has performed nearly 700,000 landings and has logged nearly 2,000,000 flight hours. Impressive short takeoff and unmatched landing distances in its class, coupled with slow approach speeds, come together in the Global aircraft to give customers greater access to more of the world's most challenging airfields and business hubs.
