Boeing Business Jets has received an order for a BBJ 777-300ER from an undisclosed customer.

Captain Steve Taylor, president of Boeing Business Jets, says: “2014 continues to be a positive year for BBJ with strong order activity. 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.”

The business jet market is still showing real interest in the Boeing wide-body aircraft as executive transports.

This is the second wide-body order for the Boeing Business Jet this year. Since BBJ introduced the 747-8 and 787 in 2006, wide-body airplanes have accounted for nearly 40 per cent of the total net orders for BBJ aircraft.

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