The world’s largest and longest-range business jet

With its bespoke interior featuring the industry’s most well-appointed full-size kitchen and four true living spaces, the Global 7500 aircraft provides the ultimate in-flight experience.

Setting the benchmark for the most exceptional cabin interior, the aircraft debuts the Nuage seat, meticulously designed for maximum comfort. With the first new seat architecture in business aviation in 30 years, the patented Nuage seat is a marvel of design and engineering, providing a perfect blend of comfort and control and featuring an all-new, ergonomically-perfected deep recline position – unavailable on any other business aircraft.

The recently unveiled Soleil lighting system is the industry’s most advanced cabin lighting technology. Designed and developed exclusively for the Global 7500 aircraft, the innovative Soleil lighting system is aviation’s first circadian rhythm-based cabin lighting technology fully integrated with the Flight Management System, and it introduces the revolutionary Dynamic Daylight Simulation feature, which can help combat jet lag.

The Global 7500 business aircraft has an impressive long-range capability of 7,700 nm (14,260 km) at M 0.85 with eight passengers, and will fly non-stop* from New York to Hong Kong, or Singapore to San Francisco, with a maximum operating speed of M 0.925.* The Global 7500 aircraft is the largest business jet with short-field performance and steep approach capabilities able to operate out of London City Airport, connecting to any city in the continental U.S., Africa or the Middle East*. Its long-range performance can go even further traveling eastward, reaching most major cities in Asia. Through these exceptional performance features and its superlative interior design, the Global 7500 aircraft delivers uncompromising value under any conditions, at any time – and without the need for tailwinds.

The Global 7500 aircraft is the winner of the 2019 Aviation Week Grand Laureate Award, the 2018 Red Dot Award for Product Design, and the 2019 International Yacht & Aviation Award for Seating Design.
