Business jets are big business for BoeingAt the recent European Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition in Geneva, Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) ( confirmed that it has won four new orders for ultra-large-cabin long-range airplanes so far this year.

These follow last year’s orders for 16 Boeing Business Jets.

BBJ’s Greg Laxton said: “We continue to see a lot of customer interest in Boeing's family of business jets, and that is translating into new orders and a growing backlog.

"Customers are seeking more space and greater range, which is driving significant growth in the large-cabin segment. Two of the new orders this year are for the BBJ MAX airplane, adding to a backlog of 19 airplanes and making the BBJ MAX one of the best-selling business jetliners in history.”

Based on the new 737 MAX airplane, the BBJ MAX delivers 14% better fuel efficiency, thanks to advanced engines and improved aerodynamics.

The model also features 787-style flight-deck displays and ‘multiple advanced new systems’.

The aircraft has a range of 12,964km. Since BBJ was launched in 1996, it has delivered 233 jets.
