Boeing Receives First BBJ Max Order

[Aviation Today April 2, 2014] Boeing is officially launching its family of Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) MAX family of aircraft after receiving its first order from an undisclosed customer. 
The BBJ MAX is the business jet version of the manufacturer's 737 MAX family aircraft. Boeing's first order was for a BBJ MAX 8, which features CFM International LEAP-1B engines with a range of 6,235 nautical miles. 
"We expect a large demand for the BBJ MAX, particularly for those BBJ owners who want to fly farther and more efficiently," said Steve Taylor, president of Boeing Business Jets. 

The BBJ MAX family will also include the BBJ MAX 9, and Boeing is also considering a smaller BBJ MAX 7 variant. The company's first BBJ MAX delivery is scheduled for 2018.
