Boeing BBJ MAX

At the 2015 Paris Air Show at Le Bourget, Boeing Business Jets was pleased to announce the first sale of its BBJ MAX 9 ultra-large cabin, long range private jet. The recipient of the new aircraft is an undisclosed European customer. This BBJ MAX 9 deal marks the fifth order for the BBJ MAX family. Previously, Boeing has landed 4 orders for the BBJ MAX 8 variant.

"We are thrilled to announce that the BBJ MAX 9 program is officially launched with our first BBJ MAX 9 order," said Boeing Business Jets President David Longridge. "While maintaining the unmatched cabin comfort of today's BBJ, the BBJ MAX's lower fuel use, increased range capability, updated flight deck, lower noise and reduced emissions enable the airplane to better meet the diverse needs of our VIP customers."

The Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) version of the 737 began development in 1996 under the guidance of teams from both Boeing and General Electric. This family of aircraft, which includes the BBJ, BBJ2, and BBJ3, will be replaced by the new-generation models. The first BBJ MAX variant to be ordered is the 737-8 which succeeds the 737-800 and incorporates improvements of aerodynamics and systems from the standard MAX. In addition, the aircraft features a more fuel efficient CFM Leap-1B engine and exhibits a range of 6,325 nautical miles. The BBJ MAX 9 will replace the BBJ3 and features an 11,700-kilometer range, a maximum takeoff weight of 195,000 pounds, and a spacious 1,120-square-foot cabin.
