On Monday (May 22, 2023), from the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, Boeing announced orders for up to four Boeing Business Jets from undisclosed VIP customers. The orders include two BBJ 787-8 Dreamliners, one BBJ 737-7 MAX and an option to purchase one BBJ 777-9. Featuring the latest innovations and technologies of Boeing’s commercial airplanes, the BBJ Family delivers enhanced environmental performance and reduced fuel use compared to previous generation models. The jets offer customers a unique combination of globe-spanning range, efficiency and passenger comfort
In Monday’s announcement, Boeing Business Jet’s President, Joe Benson, said,
“With the right combination of comfort, performance and best-in-class operating economics, the BBJ family offers VIP customers all the features they are looking for in a business jet. Designed on the platforms of Boeing's best-selling commercial airframes, customers recognize the value in operating the most reliable and capable jets in world.”
The BBJ 737-7 MAX is the longest range single aisle business jet in its class, offering a range of 6,600 nautical miles (12,200 km) nonstop, with the ability to connect global hubs such as Geneva and Singapore. With its visionary composite airframe, the BBJ 787 Dreamliner delivers fuel savings and a range of up to 9,945 nautical miles (18,420 km). The aircraft offers improved environmental performance, a lower cabin altitude, increased cabin air humidity, and advanced smooth ride technology, to encounter the effects of turbulence. The BBJ 777-9 (777X) is the first business jet capable of connecting any two cities in the world nonstop, with a range of up to 11,025 nautical miles (20,428 km). The airplane features engineering design improvements and new technologies, including a new carbon-fiber composite wing and all-new engines, which combine to deliver improved environmental performance. The BBJ 777X also offers leading-edge cabin comfort technologies, just like the BBJ 787 Dreamliner.
Designed to fly up to 4,000 hours per year, Boeing Business Jets provide far higher reliability and retain more residual value compared to competitors. The BBJ Family is also supported by Boeing’s global network of services, parts and maintenance, and can be serviced globally with customers benefitting from reduced parts and training costs. Since its founding in 1996, Boeing Business Jets have sold over 260 airplanes.
