  1. New Orders Come In For BBJ This Year
    Boeing Business Jets have been quiet for most of the year so far but this does not mean there isn't work happening with the bespoke-executive offshoot of Boeing. Recently the airframer made the announcement that it has received orders for four BBJ 737 Max aircraft from various customers. Of course all of them are undisclosed customers at this stage. As successors to the original BBJ family, the BBJ 737-7, BBJ 737-8 and BBJ 737-9 have CFM LEAP- 1B engines, improved aerodynamics and advanced systems that deliver double-digit reductions in fuel consumption and emissions and a 40% reduction in noise. Also range has been improved significantly.
  2. "With increased demand in private and business travel, BBJ 737 MAXs provide our VIP customers with exceptional fuel economics, reduced emissions and increased range to meet their specific requirements," said Pearson. Erika Pearson has been named as the new President of BBJ - replacing JD Detwiler-. "It’s an honor to lead the BBJ team at such a dynamic time for business aviation, as we continue to show the outstanding capabilities of our luxurious, ultra-large cabin, long- range private jets, wrapped in the most capable commercial platforms." Not just the capabilities but the rationale behind traveling via these bespoke jets vs commercial travel. "We’ve seen a new class of private traveler emerge over the last few years: those who used to fly first and business class, who recently recognized the tremendous benefits of chartering a private jet," said Alex Fecteau, director of Marketing, Boeing Business Jets. "For a similar price, with far more amenities, customers can fly on a VIP private jet."
