The standard galley, if chosen, comes with a microwave, oven, refrigerator and freezer, a sink with hot and cold water, food storage, and a trash compactor. Entertainment systems generally include two DVD players, two VCRS, three multi-disc CD players, and satellite TV. In other words, the sky is the limit when designing the interior of the BBJ.

The BBJ, despite its size and its maximum takeoff weight of 171,000 pounds, can take off from a sea level runway in 5,885 feet. At an altitude of 5,000 feet and a temperature of 77°F, the required runway distance increases to 9,645 feet. For comparison’s sake, the average takeoff distance of heavy private jets at sea level is 5,500 feet. The average MTOW of these private jets is 52,000 pounds, 30% of the BBJ’s MTOW.

It has already been mentioned that the BBJ is reliable and designed to practically last forever. But to further clarify this point, consider this: the 737s were intended to be flown 10-12 hours per day, every day of the year. This calculates out to between 12 and 14 cycles per day, or units designed to measure the wear and tear on an aircraft. The BBJ has a design life of 75,000 cycles. This number will probably increase to 112,500 hours after more flight hours have accumulated. Either way, this means that a BBJ could be flown 10 or 12 hours every single day and last 15 years (23 years, if the extended life cycle is approved).

The Boeing Business Jet (the VIP version of the 737-700) or BBJ for short is one of the biggest private jets you can hire. The series is often used for presidential travels. It is used as a presidential aircraft in Argentina, Australia, Colombia, India, Kuwait, Malaysia, Nigeria and more. You won’t be surprised to learn that at Private Jet Charter we love BBjs; they are amazing aircrafts for parties or for business flights! So let’s introduce you to the BBJ!

The BBJ’s production started in 1998 and it was first sold in 1999. The builder, Boeing has already sold more than 190 aircrafts from this series which has been developed in a partnership with General Electric! The price of the BBJ depends on the model (from BBJ 1 to 3) and ranges from 47 to 310 million dollars.

The length of the plane is 110 feet, its width is 117 feet and its height is 41 feet. The cabin (excluding cockpit) is 79 feet long, 11.5 feet wide and even a basketball player would feel comfortable in the cabin as its height is about 7.3 feet.

The Boeing Business Jet series are variants of Boeing jet airliners for the corporate jet market. The Boeing Business Jet is a 50/50 partnership between Boeing Commercial Airplanes and GE Aviation .

The BBJ designation denotes the business jets based upon the 737 series airliners. These aircraft usually seat between 25 and 50 passengers within a luxurious configuration. This may include a master bedroom, a washroom with showers, a conference/dining area, and a living area. Boeing Business Jets also has corporate jet configurations based on the 777 , 787 and the 747-8 Intercontinental , which are known as 777 VIP , 787 VIP , and 747-8 VIP , respectively.

The Boeing BBJ is primarily a 737 commercial airframe with modifications to provide for private jet service. The BBJ1 is based on a 737-700 airframe, with elements from the 737-800. The BBJ2 and BBJ3 are based on the 737-800 and 737-900ER series, respectively.
