The family of Boeing Business Jets, comprised of the BBJ, BBJ 2 and BBJ 3, now has a new member: the 787 Dreamliner VIP version, whose interiors were recently put on display.

This airplane newly developed by the U.S. company is notable not only for its advanced technology. The firm’s engineers, located in Seattle, Washington, went much further by virtually launching it in VIP format, along with the 747-8 Intercontinental.

The first commercial version of the 787 Dreamliner was presented on July 8, 2006, and until now has sold 569 units to 44 clients around the world.

 

 

All the luxury and comfort of this VIP version BBJ is featured in abundance, exceeding in size any business jet offered by the competition. Fine wood and leather finishes on every seat characterize this flying “castle”, adjustable to the work and travel preferences of its owners.

The 787’s spacious cabin and advanced technology permit each owner to design a spectacular atmosphere adjustable to all their needs and desires. Whether one seeks a mansion or an air-born office – or both – the possibilities are nearly endless.

For Steven Hill, president of BBJ, “the 787 VIP is a highly attractive airplane developed for successful and wealthy executives, especially from Asia, where business is conducted at great distances. The 787 has it all: long distance capacity, advanced technology and a spacious, comfortable cabin”. The company expects to position two models for the short term in Latin America.

 

Ample spaces

The VIP configuration of the 787-8 offers 223.30 square meters of cabin space, enough to allow practically any design configuration and tasteful decoration with the latest technological advances, including an option of crystal floors for even greater luxury. The currently available model offers a range of 17,760 kilometers (9,590 nautical miles).

 

 

The VIP configuration of the 787-9 is even greater, with a cabin of 256.60 square meters and a 18,425 kilometer (9,950 nautical mile) range, permitting its owners to fly without stopovers to any location in the world, with comfortable seating for 75 passengers and a host of on-board luxuries to enjoy during the flight. Both models are capable of flying at Mach 0.86.

The plane’s owner can take all or part of his automobile collection, since the rear section of the plane offers ample storage space that fits up to eight pallets and 10 containers, plus 11 cubic meters (400 cubic feet) of extra freight, such as several sets of golf equipment.

Boeing offers the option of delivering the planes in “green” condition, meaning without either interior finish or external paint. This option allows clients to work with designer teams at Boeing’s interior finish centers in order to crafts installations in accordance with their own personal preferences and needs.

Typical interiors include bedroom suites with integrated bathroom, bars, dining area, recreation room, TV area, meeting room and private offices. The possibilities are nearly infinite.

Passengers aboard the 787 Dreamliner shall not only enjoy the largest windows available (65 percent larger than anything currently on the market), but to experience the pleasant sensation of flying at an equivalent of six thousand feet, thereby reducing fatigue associated with jetlag.  If all this were not enough, the company’s smooth ride technology reduces the sensation of turbulence, resulting in a more comfortable flight and lesser incidence of nausea.
