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 which features a self-serve beverage and snack station and more overall legroom per seat than any other 50-seat aircraft flown by any US carrier.

“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.”

With the CRJ550, the CRJ Series is the only family of regional aircraft that can offer 3-class cabin across all-market segments, while meeting the current operational requirements. One of the key benefits for the US operators will be to leverage the cockpit commonality from the CRJ200 to the CRJ900. The CRJ550 will also deliver a 99.5% proven dispatch reliability, the elimination of gate check bags and providing connectivity.
