Boeing Business Jets has delivered a Boeing VIP 777-200LR (long range) to Aviation Link Co., an aircraft management company based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Aviation Link Co. provides total airplane management services for VIP customers in the Middle East including the airplane purchase, interior design and completion, as well as operational and maintenance management.

This delivery brings the total to 13 airplanes Aviation Link Co. has managed, ranging from Gulfstreams to two Boeing 777s.

The 777-200LR interior completion work will begin at Amac Aerospace of Basel, Switzerland, later this month. An undisclosed, private owner in the Middle East will take delivery of the airplane after VIP cabin completion in 2012.

Despite the global economic downturn, the Middle East region remains a very strong market for both single-aisle and twin-aisle VIP airplanes, said Steve Taylor, president of Boeing Business Jets.

Boeing has received both government and private orders for the 787 Dreamliner, 777 and 747-8 Intercontinental, said Taylor. Our VIP clientele recognizes the emphasis on new technology Boeing has designed into our new family of VIP transports.

The customer required a widebody aircraft capable of connecting virtually any two cities in the world nonstop, while carrying a full cargo load, said Abdulaziz A. Al Rowaished, president and chief executive officer, Aviation Link Co. After a thorough review of the market, the 777-200LR was the natural choice.
