Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) has delivered the
first BBJ MAX airplane to a customer. The BBJ MAX family, based on Boeing's
737 MAX airplane, is capable of flying 7,000 nautical miles (12,964 km).
"We are excited to begin delivering a
longer-range and more capable version of the world's most popular
business jetliner," said Greg Laxton, head of Boeing Business
Jets. "There has been great market interest and anticipation for
the BBJ MAX and our valued customers will soon be able to see the
new standard in business travel."
To commemorate the first delivery, Boeing
Business Jets has unveiled a new interior concept by
aviation design firm, SkyStyle. The concept, named Genesis by
SkyStyle Co-Founders Max Pardo and Lucas Colombo, represents the
company's debut in BBJ MAX design.
"From an aviation designer's perspective, the
BBJ MAX is incredibly appealing because there is so much more
interior space to realize one's vision," said Max Pardo. "And
since the MAX flies ultra-long-distances, the owners are looking
for a comfortable lounge, multi-function conference area and a
large master suite to ensure the ultimate flight experience."
Customers from around the world have thus far
placed orders for 20 BBJ MAX airplanes.
