Jet Aviation inducts first VVIP BBJ 777-300ER for completion


Jet Aviation’s completions center in Basel, Switzerland, has taken delivery of the first of two BBJ 777-300ERs ready for interior completion, commissioned by Boeing on behalf of a government client in Asia. The aircraft arrived mid-October 2016 and was accepted by the completions center following an incoming inspection. It will be the first VVIP BBJ 777 completion for Jet Aviation. The BBJ 777-300ER has a 3,641ft² cabin and a range of 9,220 nautical miles.

“We know Jet Aviation’s commitment to quality matches our own,” said David Longridge, president, Boeing Business Jets. “They have a demonstrated capability to fit exceptional wide-body interiors that combine beautiful design and craftsmanship with cutting-edge engineering and technology. We are confident that the customer will be very satisfied with the work done. Boeing wide-body VVIP products are experiencing a lot of interest, and the BBJ 777-300ER is proving especially popular due to its capacity for unmatched comfort and range on long-haul flights.”

“Having completed VIP cabin interiors on more than 200 aircraft since opening the completions center in 1977, we offer a full scope of in-house capabilities and uncompromising standards, and we look forward to delivering an exceptional aircraft to the Boeing customer,” said Neil Boyle, senior vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation’s completions center in Basel.
