Boeing revealed the launch of the Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) MAX family of aircraft after getting the very first order from an undisclosed consumer. The order is for a BBJ MAX 8, which is based on the 737 MAX 8 and the newest business jet to join the BBJ household.
“We are honored that an existing BBJ consumer has actually ended up being the first to select the BBJ MAX,” stated Capt. Steve Taylor, head of state, Boeing Business Jets. “The BBJ MAX supplies more space, longer variety and discharges fewer emissions than its closest competition, making it a perfect option for today’s BBJ customers.”.
BBJ is the marketplace leader in the huge cabin, ultra-long-range business jet market and the new BBJ MAX will extend that advantage.
With brand-new CFM International LEAP-1B engines and other aerodynamic enhancements consisting of Advanced Technology winglets, the 737 MAX will offer a 14 percent fuel-use enhancement compared to today’s most reliable single-aisle aircrafts. The fuel-use improvement ares higher at longer ranges typically flown by Boeing Business Jet clients.
The first BBJ MAX will be delivered in 2018 without an interior, and a completion center of the customer’s choosing will install the jet’s VIP interior.
