Bombardier Launches New Innovative first triple-class 50-seat aircraft in the world.
The CRJ550 is a new aircraft type based on the CRJ700 platform, within Bombardier’s successful CRJ family
United Airlines is the launch customer of this new model, and it will be operated by GoJet for United Airlines.
The CRJ550 will feature a self-serve beverage and snack station and more overall legroom per seat than any other 50-seat aircraft flown by any U.S. carrier, in addition to all the benefits for which the CRJ Series aircraft are known.
With the CRJ550, the CRJ Series is the only family of regional aircraft that can offer 3-class cabin across all-market segments, while meeting the current operational requirements. One of the key benefits for the US operators will be to leverage the cockpit commonality from the CRJ200 to the CRJ900.
The CRJ550 will also delight operators by delivering a 99.5 per cent proven dispatch reliability, the elimination of gate check bags, and providing connectivity.
