Bombardier Commercial Aircraft has officially introduced the new CRJ550 aircraft, the first triple-class 50-seat aircraft, designed to meet the expectations of today’s passengers. The CRJ550 is a new CRJ Series aircraft model, with a new type certificate based on the CRJ700. United Airlines is the launch customer of this new model.
“The new CRJ550 model is the only solution in North America that can replace the existing fleet of ageing 50-seaters, a market of over 700 aircraft, said Fred Cromer, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. It offers improved passenger experience with ample on-board storage for carry-on bags and more passenger living space. This is one more example of how we are focusing on creating value for our customers and a very important endorsement from United in regards to the CRJ platform.”
The CRJ550 will feature a self-serve beverage and snack station and more overall legroom per seat, in addition to all the benefits for which the CRJ Series aircraft are known.Email Post to a Friend
