Aircraft Details

The Boeing Business Jet is the ultimate option for executive groups and VIPs chartering international and long-distance domestic flights. BBJ’s offer the reliability, economy and performance they’re commercial counterparts are renowned for, with all of the luxury, comfort, and amenities expected from private air travel.

Charter a BBJ

Boeing modified a combination of their 737-700 and 737-800 airliners to create the BBJ, overhauling the interior with a stylish, luxurious corporate layout. The original model’s full name is BBJ 737-700 IGW for “Increased Gross Weight” due to cabin modifications and increased fuel capacity.

The interior offers a variety of areas and open spaces that can accommodate between 18 and 149 executives, although most versions are configured with a seating capacity between 40 and 60 passengers. Interiors are available in several layouts for luxury and executive charter, with endless customization available for aircraft owners.

The BBJ’s cabin offers more square footage than some offices – 807 square feet – and measures well beyond your normal business jet at more than 79 feet long, 7 feet tall, and 11 1/2 feet wide.

Today, there are a total of around 240 BBJs in service. Boeing has produced several variations of their corporate airliner, including wide-body versions of their Dreamliner models. They’re popular for business groups, sports teams, music groups and touring artists, wedding parties, and other special events.

Chartering one of these VIP corporate airliners will start at well over $10,000 an hour*. If this rate is higher than your budget allows, you can check out its smaller competitors that offer high-density seating and long-range flights, including the Embraer Lineage, the Bombardier Global Express, the Gulfstream G550, and the Gulfstream G650.


Chartering a Boeing Business Jet for your group flight allows you and your friends, family, or colleagues to travel in first-class comfort with all the benefits of flying private. The BBJ’s cabin is extremely flexible and able to accommodate almost any group with more than 5,000 cubic feet of space.

Typical configurations divide the cabin into 4 areas which usually consists of a board room, a lounge, a VIP bedroom, and a business office, with two fully private bathrooms complete with showers. A galley, restroom, and luggage storage are also available outside of the cabin’s main area.

Dual temperature control zones allow passengers and crew to stay comfortable throughout the aircraft, and groups can disembark using the BBJ’s air stair when traveling to airports with less sophisticated infrastructure or limited ground support like those in the Caribbean.


The BBJ’s design combines the fuselage, wings, and aft section of the 737-700 with the landing gear of the 737-800. Twin CFM International CFM56-7 engines powers Boeing’s corporate airliner, and 10 auxiliary fuel tanks are available to offer intercontinental range. Some models also include winglets to increase range and reduce drag.

Pilots can stay relaxed and alert during long-hauls flights with Next Generation 737 advanced EFIS avionics on the flight deck, which are based on Rockwell Collins Series popular Series 90 Suite.

As far as reliability, 737s are designed to be fly 10-12 hours a day, every day. This equals around 12 and 14 cycles per day, cycles being a unit of measure to track a plane’s wear and tear. BBJs are built for 75,000 cycles, meaning they practically last forever. Although it may vary as an aircraft ages, BBJs can fly 10 to 12 hours every single day while lasting 15 to 23 years.
