Boeing Business Jets announced the sale of the first BBJ Max 7. It was ordered by a customer based in the Asia-Pacific region.
“The 7,000-mile range will connect key city pairings that were previously not possible in a BBJ and increased cabin and cargo space makes this an unbeatable business jet,” said David Longridge, president, Boeing Business Jets.
The BBJ Max 7 is longer than the original BBJ, providing more space in the cabin while also creating additional volume for cargo in the lower lobe. In addition, because of its more fuel-efficient LEAP-1B engines, the BBJ Max 7 has reduced fuel burn and emissions and requires less cargo volume be reserved for auxiliary fuel tanks, no matter what the mission length.
Boeing Business Jets has 12 BBJ Maxs on order –one BBJ Max 7, 10 BBJ Max 8s and one BBJ Max 9.
