Boeing Business Jets has selected Jet Aviation to complete two BBJ 777-300ERs at its facility in Basel, Switzerland. Work on the widebody airliners, owned by an undisclosed Asian customer, will commence imminently and the project is expected to take over three years to complete.
“We have invested heavily in process and product improvements for popular widebody platforms such as the 777, in order to bring VIP interiors to the next level of quality and precision,” says Jet Aviation Basel’s director, market development and completions sales, Matthew Woollaston.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase our new capabilities,” he continues.
According to Boeing, the 777-300ER has a cabin size of 3,641ft2 (338m2) and a range of 9,200nm (17,000km).
The General Dynamics-owned company has completed 25 Boeing airliners since 1996, when the first project was undertaken. This is the first 777 completion for Jet Aviation.
