Boeing surpass business jet goal

Boeing Business Jets has announced it has sold a program total of 102 BBJs, surpassing its goal to reach 100 orders before the end of the year. “There is a significant market that values large cabins and long-range
capability,” Boeing Business Jets President Steven Hill said during a
media briefing at the National Business Aviation Association’s
convention in Orlando. “With three times the cabin space as traditional
business jets and the ability to fly more than 6,000 nautical miles, 
the BBJ offers the ability to travel with family, friends or business
associates while working, eating, sleeping or entertaining in the air
as you would on the ground. The order tally underscores the value of
the BBJ, and we expect that trend to continue.”

The latest orders for five business jets came from all corners of the
world including the first order from Hong Kong.

Hill also announced the BBJ Program has signed a service contract with
Jet Aviation Singapore, making the company the first authorized service
center for BBJs in the Asia Pacific region. Jet Aviation will provide
maintenance, repair and overhaul services as well as warranty work on
behalf of BBJ customers.
