Boeing Launches Long-Range 777x Bizjet
Boeing introduced its newest business jet this week at the Middle East Business Aviation Association Show, in Dubai, noting that it can fly between any two points on Earth nonstop, and announced a new order for the airplane. The BBJ 777X, a new Boeing Business Jet model, can fly farther than any business jet ever built, says Boeing. "Our most exclusive customers want to travel with the best space and comfort and fly directly to their destination,” said Greg Laxton, head of Boeing Business Jets, at the show. "The new BBJ 777X will be able to do this like no other airplane before it, redefining ultra-long-range VIP travel.”
The BBJ 777-8 can fly up to 11,645 NM and its cabin covers 3,256 square feet, says Boeing. The BBJ 777-9 provides an even larger cabin, measuring 3,689 square feet, with a maximum range of 11,000 NM. BBJ also unveiled interior concepts for the spacious cabin from three design firms: Greenpoint Technologies, Jet Aviation and Unique Aircraft Design.
