Boeing Business Jets announced today at the European Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (EBACE) that seven orders have been booked since the start of 2017. The orders include four head-of-state aircraft for two European government customers.
"We are thrilled to be off to a really strong start to 2017," said Boeing Business Jets President Greg Laxton. "We continually outpace our competition in market share because our customers know that Boeing Business Jets products offer unbeatable comfort and range."
Boeing Business Jets also announced 36 orders year-to-date for military derivative aircraft, including the 737-based P-8 and the 767-based KC-46A tanker.
"The military derivative side of our business is increasingly a large segment of our business," said Laxton. "We have seen a sharp increase in sales in the past five years and that is simply due to the strength of our products."
Boeing Business Jets also unveiled a new BBJ Demonstrator aircraft at the static display at EBACE. Completed by AMAC Aerospace, the interior highlights the space, comfort, and versatility that the BBJ offers. The BBJ Demonstrator features multiple workspaces, large dining areas and ample space for rest and relaxation.
