Boeing Business Jets has launched the BBJ 777X, a new model that can fly more than half way around the world without stopping, farther than any business jet ever built.
Customers can choose between the BBJ 777-8 and BBJ 777-9. The BBJ 777-8 offers the longest range of 11,645 nautical miles (21,570km) and a spacious 3,256 sq ft. (302.5 sq m) cabin.
The BBJ 777-9 provides a cabin measuring 3,689 sq ft (342.7 sq m), while still offering ultra-long range of 11,000 nautical miles (20,370km). Boeing said this model “opens up almost unlimited interior design options to ensure ultimate comfort for long distance travel”.
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.”
To demonstrate the versatility of the BBJ 777X’s spacious cabin, Boeing Business Jets unveiled interior concepts from three design firms (Greenpoint Technologies, Jet Aviation, and Unique Aircraft Design) to show how the cabin can be transformed to suit the tastes of any VIP customer.
