Powering the new-generation Bombardier Global 7500

Designed specifically for the Global 7500, Bombardier’s latest and most elite ultra-long-range business jet, the Passport™ has enabled this new-generation turbofan engine aircraft to power through 8,225 nautical miles on a single tank of fuel, during a record-breaking flight between Sydney and Detroit.

Additionally, Passport was a key enabler to Bombardier’s making history in 2020 by issuing the first-ever Environmental Product Declaration for a business jet on its Global 7500. Surpassing any other engine in its class, this marvel of engineering incorporates a blend of technology created and honed by GE over decades of experience and success in commercial and military engine design.

Tried. Tested. Proven.

At nearly 19,000 pounds, GE’s Passport engine powers Bombardier’s latest and most elite ultra-long range business jet, the Global 7500. Designed and built for range and comfort, Passport incorporates a blend of technology created and honed by GE over decades of experience in commercial and military engine design. Passport is an industry leader in energy extraction, fuel efficiency, emissions, and noise.




Range and efficiency

Using the same ultra-long range technology as the GEnx engine, the Passport delivers 4% better fuel efficiency than other engines in its thrust class, driving longer range and lower emissions. Additionally, Passport is the quietest engine within GE’s portfolio, solidly meeting the FAA’s Stage 4 noise requirements, providing passengers with onboard comfort of a nearly silent flying experience.
