Private businessman takes delivery of second BBJ
Boeing introduce Honeywell’s Ovation Select system to their 737-700.
Boeing has unveiled the latest BBJ to enter service at ABACE in Shanghai. The aircraft, a 737-700 with -800 wings and other modifications for longer range, was delivered earlier this month to a private businessman in the United States. It is the second BBJ for this customer. The interior was completed by Jet Tech of Spokane.
“Our repeat customers aren’t limited to governments and charter companies, but include private individuals who love the comfort and capability of their BBJ so much, they buy another one,” said Steve Taylor, BBJ president.
This is the first BBJ to enter service with Honeywell’s Ovation Select digital system allowing the passengers to be just as productive on board their airplane as they are in the office.
“Ovation Select offers the latest technological advancements to deliver seamless and easy connectivity – whether passengers are connected via their BlackBerry, using their laptops, iPads or conducting a video conference call,” said Tony Brancato, vice president for business and general aviation aftermarket at Honeywell Aerospace.
“The modular, lightweight and flexible cabin management system provides component command and control, high-quality, crystal-clear surround sound audio and vivid full high-definition (1080p) video which is stunning to watch on the 42-inch and 46-inch high definition monitors found in this BBJ.”
