Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) 737MAX delivered to the first client

Boeing has delivered the first business version of the narrow-body aircraft Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) 737MAX. The official acceptance ceremony for the first business jet, based on the BBJ 737MAX-8 base family, was held at the National Business Aviation Association’s exhibition (NBAA-BACE), the American aircraft manufacturer said. Before putting the machine into operation, it is necessary to complete work on the interior trim of the aircraft.

"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."

The BBJ 737MAX program was launched in April 2014, when the sun received the first firm order from an unnamed customer. A total of 20 aircraft of the BBJ 737MAX family, which also includes the BBJ 737MAX-7 and BBJ 737MAX-9, are currently sold. Customers include the Swiss business operator Comlux, which has ordered two such aircraft.

BBJ MAX is able to overcome from 12 thousand to almost 13 thousand km, depending on the modification. These aircraft are equipped with a built-in passenger ladder and personalized interiors. The manufacturer promises, thanks to remotorization and improved aerodynamic characteristics, an increase in fuel efficiency of 15%.

At the NBAA-BACE exhibition, taking place in Orlando (Florida, USA) in mid-October, the new Genesis interior design concept from SkyStyle was presented.
