Boeing is an American multinational corporation founded in 1916 and headquartered in Chicago, Illinois. The company is designing, manufacturing and selling airplanes and is among the largest global aircraft manufacturers. Boeing Business Jet series are derived from Boeing jet airliners for the corporate jet market.
Boeing Business Jets are based upon the narrow-body models of Boeing 737 series airliners with a 25 to 50 passengers capacity such as the BBJ1, BBJ2, BBJ3, BBJ C, BBJ MAX 7, BBJ MAX 8 and BBJ MAX 9. Boeing Business Jets also offers Corporate Jet configurations through wide-body models with the Boeing 777 VIP, Boeing 787 VIP and the Boeing 747-8 VIP.
With a certification planned for 2021, Boeing’s latest BBJ model, the BBJ MAX 7, should be introduced in 2022. Boeing announced in December 2017 their plans to purchase Aurora Flight Sciences in order to expand its capabilities to develop electric powered and long flight duration aircraft for its commercial and military businesses.
