Bombardier shows off Challenger 3500 business jet at EBACE 2023


Bombardier shows off its award-winning Challenger 3500 business jet to the European market, at the 2023 European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, Switzerland. 

The Challenger 3500 aircraft entered service in September 2022 and is being showcased alongside the Global 7500 aircraft, and a stunning second-hand Challenger 605.

The latest evolution in the Challenger lineage is a tangible gateway to Bombardier’s eco-design vision. In the cabin, the Challenger 3500 aircraft boasts a high-end product design by proposing a selection of innovative, sustainable materials that minimize the impact on the environment. The Challenger 3500 also joins the Global 5500, Global 6500 and Global 7500 aircraft in standing alone as the only business jets in the industry to carry an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), offering trustworthy, thorough and transparent views of their environmental footprint.

“European customers will be able to feel for themselves the high quality that is standard for our aircraft – such as in experiencing Bombardier’s illustrious Nuage seat – all while finding unique design options that are genuinely more sustainable,’’ said Jean-Christopher Gallagher, Executive Vice President, Aircraft Sales & Bombardier Defense, Bombardier. “We are very proud to open the door of the Challenger 3500 aircraft to our European customers for the very first time. This top-of-the-line aircraft demonstrates that exceptional comfort, ultimate performance and lower environmental footprint can go hand in hand.’’
