Global 6000 Overview (2012-present)

Product Overview

The Global 6000 is the fourth and latest business jet aircraft model built by Bombardier to compete in the new ultra-long range large-cabin market. The Global 6000 has a large spacious cabin in excess of 2,000 cubic feet and can travel non-stop over 6,100 nm. The ultra-long range market is defined as a new group of large cabin business jets that can fly 6,000 nm or greater distance.

As of July 2017, 91% of the Global 6000 aircraft were purchased new by their current owners, the other 9% pre-owned. 4.7% are for sale with the majority of those (73%) under an exclusive broker agreement. When for sale, the average time on the market is 236 days.

A total of 280 Global 6000 aircraft have been manufactured with 241 in operation, 5 in production, and 24 at the manufacturer.

Two new aircraft will follow the Global 6000. They are the Global 7000 and Global 8000 ultra-long-range large cabin business jets.
