The Bombardier Global 6000 costs between $23m for a 2012 model and $62.30m for a 2021 model, per Aircraft Bluebook’s Spring 2023 data. Actual sale prices for an individual aircraft are impacted by a variety of factors, including its maintenance condition.
There are a number of other options that compete with the Bombardier Global 6000 in the ultra-long-range market, including the new Gulfstream G600, which boasts a similar range of 6,600nm, and the Dassault Falcon 8X (6,450nm range).
The Bombardier Global 6000 jet offers some of the highest comfort levels on the market, with the company’s ‘Premier’ cabin available as an option on the aircraft (inspired by the interior of the larger, longer-range Global 7500). The aircraft also boasts the highest availability of electrical power in its category, according to the manufacturer, with four variable frequency generators and an auxiliary power unit, providing reliability for long missions.
The Global 6500 offers 600nm miles of additional range over the Global 6000, while it has a fuel burn advantage of up to 13%. According to Bombardier, this produces favourable operating costs when the aircraft is compared with smaller aircraft with more restricted range.
Bombardier Global 6000 Jet Overview
By Gerrard Cowan, Editor- Aircraft Reviews
The Global 6000 variant of the Global Express XRS began delivering in 2012 and has enjoyed considerable success in its section of the market over the past few years, with 330 units produced so far, according to JETNET data (April 2023).
To highlight, in late 2018 the manufacturer announced the sale of four Global 6000s to an undisclosed customer as part of a $310m deal, and, according to Bombardier Global, the model has also notched up wins in the governmental domain. Three Global 6000s were sold to the Luftwaffe for use in diplomatic and parliamentary transport requirements.
What features does the Bombardier Global 6000 offer?
With two Rolls-Royce BR710 engines, the Global 6000 is pitched at customers who require non-stop intercontinental flights.
The aircraft’s wing design is aimed at delivering an exceptionally smooth ride with high levels of comfort, something that is boosted by the impressively wide cabin. The aircraft has a range of 6,000nm (with eight passengers), travelling at Mach 0.85. This means it can connect Los Angeles to Moscow non-stop under the right operating conditions.
The aircraft has a Bombardier Vision flight deck, with a head-up display offering Enhanced and Synthetic Vision.

What came before and after the Bombardier Global 6000?
The Bombardier Global 6000 was preceded by the Global Express XRS, which, itself offered improved avionics and an increase in range over the original Bombardier Global Express jet model.
In 2018 the company unveiled the Bombardier Global 6500, a longer-range variant of the Global 6000 by 600nm. This is enabled via new Pearl 15 engines from Rolls-Royce, a higher top speed, a redesigned wing, upgraded avionics, and a completely redesigned cabin, including Nuage seating.
