The Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) joint venture has won three orders for BBJ MAX jets from an undisclosed customer in China.

A 50/50 venture between Boeing Commercial Airplanes and GE Aviation, BBJ currently has 21 business jets that are in-service in China, and expects to deliver a BBJ 2 aircraft this year and another unit next year.

Boeing Business Jets president David Longridge said: "BBJ is doing really well in Greater China and we are growing every year.

"The BBJ fleet continues to expand and the response to our product lineup has been really positive.

BBJ provides individualised support to its customers throughout the entire lifecycle of the airplane, beginning with the sale of the airplane, during the interior completion process and when the airplane is operating in-service.

The company has a field service representative in China to serve customers in the region.

"The BBJ fleet continues to expand and the response to our product lineup has been really positive."

Longridge added: "We are very focused on providing unmatched customer support.

"Every customer is unique and every BBJ is customised to the owner’s specific requirements.

"We work closely with our customers in China to figure out how best to support them, whether that be delivering a green airplane, managing the interior completion process or delivering a completed turnkey product."

Since 1996, BBJ has sold 238 aircraft, including BBJ, BBJ 777, BBJ 787 and BBJ 747.

Boeing recently expanded its training capabilities at its Flight Services campus in Shanghai, China, to support customers in the region. The expansion includes a next-generation 737 full-flight simulator and a 737 maintenance training classroom.
