Bombardier has received a firm order for 10 of its super-midsize Challenger 350 model. Based on 2020 list prices, the sale is valued at US$267m (€218m).
“This order highlights the tremendous value customers place on the unmatched capabilities of our aircraft,” said Éric Martel, president and CEO. “Bombardier’s newly refreshed portfolio and growing service network position the company well to respond to growing interest in private aviation and the enhanced safety it provides.”
The Challenger 350 accommodates up to 10 passengers. The cabin is 6ft (1.83m) tall, 7ft 2in (2.19m) wide and 25ft 2in (7.68m) long from the cockpit divider, not including the baggage compartment (which is always accessible).
The aircraft entered service in 2014 and has since seen performance enhancements and cabin upgrades. Updates announced in 2019 included improved cabin soundproofing. The aircraft features a standard entry door acoustic curtain and galley pocket door.
Other features include integrated sidewall speakers and CMS. Available internet options include high-speed Ka-band and 4G ATG.
