Representatives from Deer Jet were in Seattle
to take delivery of their new BBJ, they joined current and former BBJ employees
to celebrate the program’s fifteen year anniversary.
Zhang Zhi, president of Deer Jet Airlines, said the proven
success of the BBJ is why his company is adding another one, “We’ve been
so pleased with the comfort and performance of our first BBJ, we’re thrilled to
take delivery of our newest airplane.”.
“Fifteen years after entering the
business jet market as a bit of a niche player, Boeing Business Jets has grown
to be an industry leader,” said Steve Taylor,
BBJ president. “We offer more space, more comfort and more utility than
any of the traditional business jet manufacturers and back it up with some of
the industry’s best reliability and product support.”
“We’re building on our terrific brand
with our newest twin-aisle products, the 787 VIP and 747-8 Intercontinental
VIP,” said Taylor.
In total, the BBJ program has booked orders for 205 aircraft and delivered 168
