Jet Aviation Basel and Boeing worked together on BBJ3 at EBACE
Jet Aviation Basel and Boeing Business jets co-operated on the first ever BBJ 3 business jet displayed last week at EBACE in Geneva.
The BBJ 3 was outfitted at the Basel facility in 2012 with a custom VIP interior created by the Jet Aviation Design Studio.
The owner of the BBJ 3 is selling the aircraft and has left the exterior unpainted for the new owner to choose their own design.
This BBJ3 can commodate 38 passengers and eight crew members, the aircraft has a spacious lounge, dining room, staff area and private bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
“As the first privately owned BBJ 3 to be completed at Jet Aviation Basel, the highly customized cabin interior is finished in a flawless, bright, high-gloss quarter-figured Sycamore wood, with hand-crafted marquetry artwork integrated in the entrance panel,” says Neil Boyle, vice president of the completions centre at Jet Aviation Basel.
Jet Aviation has delivered 24 completed Boeing aircraft since partnering with Boeing in 1996, including BBJ 1, BBJ 2, BBJ 3, B757-200, B767-200, B767-300, B747-400 and B747-SP aircraft.
Dan Clare Jet Aviation Group president said “Our working partnership with Boeing has been very productive and we will continue delivering quality work and craftsmanship for the benefit of our mutual customers.”
“The BBJ 3 has a range of 4,900 nautical miles, which exceeds that of other business jets in its class. This range advantage is why the BBJ3 has out sold its direct competitor by seven to one,” said Captain Steve Taylor, president, Boeing Busoness Jets. “Our customers demand airplanes with great performance, enabling them to conduct business around the world.”
