Interior design

The Challenger 650 boasts one of the widest cabins in its class and comes in two possible configurations: the Executive, which seats 11 passengers, or the nine-seat Globetrotter. Each features a forward club suite and an aft divan, adjacent to either a four-seat conference suite (Executive) or a two-seat lounge suite (Globetrotter). Both layouts also have a galley at the entrance and an enclosed lavatory in the rear.

Every aspect of the cabin has been carefully designed to maximise passenger comfort, from the large windows to fold-out tables and angled touch screens. The baggage compartment is accessible throughout the flight, making it easy to retrieve personal items whenever needed.

The Challenger 650 improved on the 605 with a redesigned interior, Rockwell Collins ProLine 21 Advanced Flight Deck and a 5% increase in takeoff thrust.
