China Emerging As Key Market For Business Jets
Boeing Business Jets has announced the delivery of a BBJ
to Nanshan Jet of Yantai, China, rounding out a strong year of
orders and deliveries to Chinese customers. Representatives of
Nanshan Jet took delivery of the airplane at the Boeing Delivery
Center in Seattle. This is the first BBJ for Nanshan Jet and one of
the first aircraft the company will operate on its own.
"Previously our jets were operated by Air China. We're thrilled
to begin this new adventure with Boeing as our partner," said Bin
Yu, president of Nanshan Jet. He said the BBJ is Nanshan Jet's
largest, most capable aircraft in their fleet of seven and will
provide charter services for corporations, government agencies and
private individuals in China.
Boeing delivers the BBJ to the customer 'green' (no interior or
paint) so it can be customized to suit specific needs and tastes.
Nanshan Jet has selected Lufthansa Technik's U.S. Subsidiary,
BizJet International, to complete its BBJ interior in Tulsa,
Oklahoma. It will be configured to carry 28 passengers.
Three of four BBJ orders and three of seven deliveries this year
were to customers in China. 2012 is expected to be equally as
strong for BBJ in the region. (Image provided by Boeing)
