BBJ 777X: Boeing launches longest-range business jet
Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) is set to launch the BBJ 777X, a new Boeing Business Jet model that can fly more than half way around the world without stopping -- further than any business jet ever built, Boeing says.
Customers can choose between two models: the BBJ 777-8 and BBJ 777-9. The BBJ 777-8 offers the longest range of 11,645 nautical miles (21,570 km) and a 3,256 sq. ft. (302.5 sq m) cabin.
The BBJ 777-9 provides an even larger cabin measuring 3,689 sq. ft. (342.7 sq m), while still offering ultra-long range of 11,000 nautical miles (20,370 km).
BBJ unveiled interior concepts from three design firms: Greenpoint Technologies, Jet Aviation and Unique Aircraft Design. Each concept shows how the BBJ 777X can be transformed to suit the tastes of any VIP customer.
Greg Laxton, head of Boeing Business Jets, said: "Our most exclusive customers want to travel with the best space and comfort and fly directly to their destination. The new BBJ 777X will be able to do this like no other airplane before it, redefining ultra-long range VIP travel.”
Boeing now has 21 orders for the BBJ MAX.
