The Red Dot: Best of the Best is awarded for ground-breaking design and is the highest award in the competition, reserved for the best products in a given category. The award is a testament to Bombardier’s successful Challenger platform and is representative of the company’s innovative spirit and approach to continuous improvement. The Challenger 3500 business jet was recognized as Red Dot: Best of the Best in the Trains and Planes category.
“Bombardier’s design teams are true masters of their craft and I am proud that their work on the Challenger 3500 jet was recognized by the Red Dot jury for belonging to the best in its category,” said Éric Martel, President and Chief Executive Officer, Bombardier. “The Challenger aircraft platform has always delivered impressive performance, consistent reliability and a smooth ride, and I’m thrilled that the new interior design and technological features elevating the aircraft’s cabin experience have been acknowledged by this prestigious award.”
Bombardier conceived the next-generation Challenger 3500 business jet through a sustainable lens, introducing a redesigned interior with intelligent and sustainably minded cabin features crafted to combine comfort with function.
