Business jet market shows continued interest in Boeing widebody airplanes

SEATTLE, June 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) Business Jets (BBJ) today announced the order of a BBJ 777-300ER (Extended Range) airplane to an undisclosed customer.

"2014 continues to be a positive year for BBJ with strong order activity," said Capt. Steve Taylor, president, Boeing Business Jets. "Customers are showing strong interest in our wide-body VIP products and the BBJ 777-300ER is an airplane that really provides unmatched comfort and range on long-haul flights."

This is the second widebody order for BBJ this year, further demonstrating Boeing's dominance in the widebody VIP market. Since BBJ introduced the 747-8 and 787 in 2006, widebody airplanes have accounted for nearly 40 percent of the total net orders for BBJ airplanes.

The BBJ 777-300ER has a cabin size of 3,641 square feet (338 square meters) with a range capability of 9,220 nautical miles (17,075 kilometers).

Boeing Business Jets delivers the VIP airplane to customers without customized interiors. A completion center of the customer's choosing installs the jet's VIP interior.

Boeing Business Jets offers a wide variety of ultra-large-cabin, long-range airplanes perfectly suited for the private jet market. The product line includes the BBJ, BBJ 2 and BBJ 3 – high-performance derivatives of the commercially successful Next-Generation 737 airplane family and the new 737 MAX family – as well as Boeing twin-aisle airplanes including the 747-8, 767, 777 and 787.

Customers have ordered 217 Boeing Business Jets and 195 aircraft have delivered since 1996 when BBJ was formed.
