The Bombardier CRJ700 is the 70-seat airliner of choice of leading airlines the world over, offering a balance of the best economics of its class as well as outstanding performance. Combine this with very high cockpit commonality with the popular CRJ200, CRJ705 & CRJ900, and its no wonder this aircraft is the market leader in its category.
The Bombardier CRJ700 was developed as an evolution of the CRJ200, incorporating new structure and systems, while keeping the cockpit common with other family members. An all-new wing was designed that incorporates full span leading edge slats which allow excellent airfield performance with only a small increase in span from the CRJ200.
The CRJ700 features an new interior cabin that offers increased room for the passenger, enabled by a lowering the floor by 1" (2.54 cm) and redesigning the fuselage frames and stringers compared to the original CRJ200, offering more headroom and a wider cabin. The seating and bins were completely redesigned to allow more passenger space and increased bin stowage.
Bombardier have sold more than 2,220 jets and turboprops; by far the most of any regional aircraft manufacturer, and they are in service on all five continents where they carry more than 60 million passengers a year. The goal is to anticipate future market requirements and have the right aircraft available at the right time. Our predecessor company, Canadair Ltd., was the first to market with a regional jet, the renowned 50-seat Canadair Regional Jet Series 100 (now the Bombardier CRJ100), in 1992. Bombardier's 70-seat CRJ700 was the first of the new-generation 70 seaters to market in 2001, and the 90-seat CRJ900 was first to hit the market in April, 2003. Another derivative, the ultra-comfortable 75-seat CRJ705 was announced in March, 2005. It's this kind of initiative that has made the CRJ the most successful program in regional airline history, and the sixth best-selling commercial jetliner overall.
The Bombardier CRJ700 cabin provides comfortable seating for 64 to 78 passengers in four-abreast or dual class or with 3 abreast business class configurations. Relative to the Bombardier CRJ200, the windows in the Bombardier CRJ700 Series have been raised 4.8 inches (12.19 cm), almost 5, to add more natural lighting and increase visibility. The floor was lowered by one inch (2.5 cm) and reduced frame heights produced a one-inch (2.5 cm) wider interior, giving the Bombardier CRJ700 passengers head and shoulder room comparable to that offered by any other competitive aircraft on the market.
