Luxury automotive manufacturer Aston Martin and Bombardier signed a letter of intent to collaborate on custom cabin design services for Bombardier’s Challenger and Global business jets.

Back in late-2019, Aston Martin also reached a design collaboration deal with Airbus Corporate Helicopters, which on January 3, 2020, revealed the first ACH130 Aston Martin Edition at Courchevel in the French Alps.

Bombardier points to its own recent cabin innovations like the patented Nuage seating collection and the Pur Air system. The Montreal plane maker’s Global aircraft recently received recognition in the annual International Yacht & Aviation Awards for the Nuage, in addition to the Red Dot award for product design for the Global 7500.
