This year’s NBAA conference and exhibition held in Orlando, was an opportunity for Boing to announce the delivering of its first BBJ MAX to a customer.
The aircraft is headed to interior finishing center for completions and according to Comlux’s last year announcement, it will be delivered to the customer in late 2019.
Greg Laxton, head of Boeing Business Jets, said: “We are excited to begin delivering a longer-range and more capable version of the world’s most popular business jetliner. There has been great market interest and anticipation for the BBJ MAX and our valued customers will soon be able to see the new standard in business travel.”
Customers from around the world have placed orders for 20 BBJ MAX airplanes up to date.
But that was not all – BBJ unveiled a new interior design concept by SkyStyle named Genesis for BBJ MAX series.
The Genesis design draws inspiration from nature’s tranquility – the skies, clouds, white sand beach, and starry night sky. It includes starlight detailing overhead.
“There are different styles with the ceiling so you won’t feel like you’re stuffed in a subway tube on this airplane like you do on a lot of other airplanes or even some of our previous concepts with straight valances that go all the way back,” says Alex Fecteau, BBJ director of marketing.
Based on grays, blues and dark woods, with silver trim, with space-ship resemblance, Genesis is contrast to the previously reviled design by the firm of Alberto Pinto, with its warm shades and classic furnishings. However, both cabins offer comfort, more space for meetings, work and rest on long journeys.
“From an aviation designer’s perspective, the BBJ MAX is incredibly appealing because there is so much more interior space to realize one’s vision,” said Max Pardo. “And since the MAX flies ultra-long-distances, the owners are looking for a comfortable lounge, multi-function conference area and a large master suite to ensure the ultimate flight experience.”
“BBJ MAX interiors have always been a sharp departure from the cramped cabins of smaller business jets, and the Genesis design is yet another example of our exclusive cabin capabilities,” said Greg Laxton, head of Boeing Business Jets.
