LONDON — The CRJ is Bombardier’s best selling regional plane in its class, and in order to improve the passenger experience, the company is investing heavily in upgrading the cabin interiors.
Featured among the improvements, there is a 3-inch higher lavatory with 60% more volume, making the CRJ the first regional jet to accommodate passengers with limited mobility to use the facilities with ease.
Larger overhead compartments are another major revision on the regional jet, allowing the storage of wheels first carry-on luggage, similar to what Boeing offers in their sky interior bins.
The aisles of the cabin will gain in size as well, and the access hatches will feature rounded edges for added space and at the same time improving the forward galley appearance.
Lastly, passengers will enjoy the optional “mood lighting,” onboard WiFi and electrical outlets. While there are no current plans to retrofit the cabins for existing customers of this aircraft, it’s expected to have one not too long from now, changing for the better the passenger experience for Bombardier CRJ flyers.
