The Global 7000 business jet has been awarded a Red Dot Award for product design in the ships, trains and airplanes category. The jet is scheduled to enter service during the second half of 2018. Bombardier recently announced a range extension to 7,700 nautical miles.
“We like to refer to our clean-sheet Global 7000 aircraft as the aircraft designed without compromise,” said Brad Nolen, vice president, marketing and product strategy, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The aircraft succeeds not only in elevating the overall inflight experience, it also ups the ante for performance, speed and range, and it is clearly changing the game in the private jet industry.”
Established in 1955, the Red Dot Design Award is a prestigious international design competition. This year there were 6,300 submissions across several categories. The 39-person jury focused on criteria including the level of innovation, functionality, formal quality, ergonomics and durability.
“Success in the competition is proof of the good design quality of the products and once again shows that companies are on the right path,” said Prof. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award. “When I speak about good design, I am referring to more than just an attractive product. All of the products are characterized by outstanding functionality. This demonstrates that the designers have understood their clients and their needs.”
