First VVIP BBJ 737 Max delivered by Jet Aviation


The first VVIP BBJ 737-8 Max cabin completion has been finalised by Jet Aviation in Basel, Switzerland. The interior was designed, crafted and engineered in-house. The achievement is the company’s third redelivery of 2021.

The interior design was created by Jet Aviation’s design studio, in collaboration with the customer, to seamlessly integrate a bespoke cabin with state-of-the-art systems and technology.

“The brief was for a cosy, residential space in which one could relax and enjoy the ride,” said Grischa Schmidt, senior director of design at Jet Aviation’s design studio. “The living area features a deep, inviting sofa, a seven-seat dining table for socialising and a well-equipped, functional kitchen to accommodate fine dining. Wooden detail, soft fabrics and indirect lighting all complement this residential and relaxing atmosphere.”

The interior was crafted and installed on-site in Basel, and includes details such as woven wooden panelling, cocoon seats that can lie fully flat and are finished in 3D wood veneer, and an integrated wine fridge in the living area.

“We are delighted to redeliver this exceptionally beautiful and detailed aircraft,” said Matthew Woollaston, vice president of completion sales at Jet Aviation. “As we strive towards creating the ultimate customer experience, we are committed to pushing the boundaries of what is considered possible in VVIP completions. This interior is a fine example of the intricacy and attention to detail of our teams here in Basel. As our first BBJ 737 Max, this was an exciting opportunity to familiarise ourselves with the next generation of this aircraft, and we look forward to applying that knowledge to future Max projects.”

“We want to congratulate Jet Aviation on this great milestone,” said James Detwiler, president of Boeing Business Jets. “The BBJ 737-8, with its ultra-long range and ample cabin space, and Jet Aviation’s top-quality design and craftsmanship, create a perfect combination. This new BBJ is built to meet the expectations of VIP customers to travel non-stop and in ultimate comfort to their destinations worldwide.”
