Jet Linx Fleet Spotlight: Bombardier Challenger 604

Heavy Jets stand in a class of their own due to their transcontinental range, speed, cabin amenities and state-of-the-art technology. Large-cabin private jet travel delivers the ultimate experience in luxury air travel, typically capable of flying for 13 hours with 12 passengers at cruising speeds of more than 500 miles per hour.

When Jet Linx Jet Card Members or Aircraft Owners select a Heavy Jet for their private jet travel, they receive a complimentary Air Hostess and can expect a fully-equipped galley and enclosed lavatory, as well as spacious areas for entertainment, sleeping, or conducting business.

The Bombardier Challenger 604 has been renowned for its outstanding performance capabilities since its certification in 1995. For aviation buffs, the Challenger 604’s history is quite colorful, as the project began with Bill Lear’s Learstar 600 – a Heavy Jet design intended to operate at Midsize Jet prices. Lear eventually sold the Learstar 600 design to Canadair (now Bombardier) where it eventually gained its current designation as the Challenger. The Challenger family of private jets has enjoyed decades of success, with thousands of aircraft deliveries dating back to the early 1970s.

The Challenger 604 was developed from the Challenger 601 and features several improvements including a longer fuselage, a larger wing, and a more powerful engine. Driven by two General Electric CF34-3B engines, this Heavy Jet has a cruise speed of 538 miles per hour but can reach a blistering 607 miles per hour at its top speed. With this remarkable speed, the Challenger 604 allows Jet Card Members and Aircraft Owners to reach their destinations swiftly and efficiently, reducing travel time significantly, all while enjoying the same comforts that one would expect at home or at a Five-Star hotel.

With a range of approximately 4,600 miles, this Heavy Jet can effortlessly cover long distances, enabling nonstop flights to and from any Jet Linx Base location in the United States, as well as nonstop access from any Jet Linx Base to nearly all international Elevated Lifestyle Preferred Hotel locations.

A Cabin Built for Long-Range Flight

The cabin of the Bombardier Challenger 604 is meticulously designed to provide a luxurious and comfortable environment for Jet Linx clients and their guests. With a spacious interior that can accommodate up to 12 passengers, this Heavy Jet offers ample room for relaxation, productivity, and entertaining. The two-section cabin space can be configured in a double-club or a forward club/half club/divan arrangement and features plush leather seating, which can be customized to individual preferences. With a cabin height just over six feet, most passengers can walk freely and comfortably – no hunching required.

Moreover, the cabin amenities on the Challenger 604 are designed to enhance the overall private jet travel experience. Passengers can enjoy a quiet and serene flight thanks to the advanced soundproofing technology incorporated into the aircraft. This feature minimizes external noise, creating a peaceful and comfortable environment conducive for work or relaxation. The low cabin pressure also means that passengers arrive to their destination more refreshed and less jet-lagged.

Endless Entertainment, Libations and Storage

To pass the time on long transoceanic or transcontinental flights, passengers can enjoy high-definition video and audio entertainment options, including movies, music, and games, throughout the flight. The guaranteed onboard Wifi connectivity enables passengers to stay connected, browse the internet, and remain productive while in the air. The full-service galley features a microwave, coffee maker and convection oven, and your local Flight Concierge team will stock the aircraft with your preferred snacks and beverages ahead of your flight and can even arrange catering from your favorite restaurant.

The Challenger 604 also boasts ample storage space in its 115 cubic-foot baggage compartment, allowing passengers to bring personal belongings and luggage with few constraints. This additional space is particularly beneficial for those traveling with larger items or multiple bags, as this aircraft can seamlessly hold eight to 10 golf bags, 12 suitcases, and eight to 10 pairs of skis.
