Captain Steve Taylor, president of Boeing Business Jets commented: “It’s terrific to see two BBJ 787s deliver within a week. The BBJ 787 joins the BBJ family, a full line of the most capable aircraft in the VIP market. The 787’s combination of phenomenal range, high cruise speed, low cabin altitude, big windows and ultra-quiet cabin make it ideal for BBJ customers.”
To date, customers have ordered 13 BBJ 787s, with deliveries scheduled through 2018. “2014 will be a very exciting year for BBJ with many major milestones to celebrate,” commented Taylor. “In addition to the deliveries of three more BBJ 787-8s, the first BBJ 747-8 we delivered last year will enter into service with its completed custom interior later in the year.”
