The next-generation Challenger 3500 brings many of the attributes of the luxurious Global family, including Bombardier’s exclusive and patented Nuage seat, the first time a seat of this calibre is available in the super mid-size segment. It also places high focus on passenger wellness, with a reduced cabin altitude of 4,850 ft. at 41,000 ft., representing a 31% improvement compared to its predecessor.
The Challenger 3500 aircraft also introduces several innovative technological features, such as the industry’s first voice-controlled cabin to manage lighting, temperature, and entertainment systems, the first wireless chargers throughout the cabin and the only 24-inch, 4K display in its class. In the cockpit, Bombardier introduces a standard-equipped auto throttle system to the Challenger 3500 flight deck, which offers the most baseline features in its class.

Yara calls for urgent action to reduce Europe’s food dependency on Russia6.10.2022 08:31:11 CEST | Press release
Oslo, October 6, 2022: Yara calls on the European Union and national governments to act urgently and decisively to ensure Europe reduces, and not strengthens, its dependency on Russia for food and fertilizers. A strong European fertilizer industry is crucial not only for ensuring food security in Europe and globally but also for ensuring that Europe can continue to take the lead in the green transition. “It is imperative that the war on Ukraine does not destroy the work towards a net-zero future. It is unthinkable that we will reach the climate targets without a strong, green European industry. Instead of weakening the position of the European fertilizer industry, which is a frontrunner in decarbonization, we need massive, coordinated efforts to reach zero emissions, while at the same time reducing our dependencies on Russia,” says Svein Tore Holsether, President and Chief Executive Officer of Yara. Curtailed production in Europe reduces worldwide availability of fertilizers and has di
