Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) is a high-performance passenger aircraft developed by the American company Boeing based on the Boeing Next-Generation 737-700 medium-range passenger aircraft. Modifications of the aircraft consist of the internal alteration of the passenger cabin, the installation of reinforced wings and landing gears from the larger and heavier Boeing 737-800 aircraft, and the installation of new PATS fuel tanks.
The aircraft was first introduced by Boeing and General Electric on July 2, 1996, and on October 21 of the same year, the first contract for the production of the aircraft was concluded. The first flight of the aircraft took place on September 4, 1998, at Renton Municipal Airport. By the end of 2000, Boeing had already signed about 50 aircraft manufacturing contracts. The cost of the aircraft is 33.75 mln. Dollars for the “initial” plane, plus from 7 to 12 mln. Dollars, depending on the configuration of the passenger cabin.
