First BBJ Max set for auxiliary fuel tank installation

Boeing has marked the flyaway of the first BBJ Max. The aircraft, a BBJ Max 8, is set to have an auxiliary fuel tank fitted, to extend its range to 6,640 nautical miles (12,297km) in standard configuration.

“We are excited to see the first BBJ Max come to life and fly through the development milestones,” said Greg Laxton, head of Boeing Business Jets. “In the past few weeks, the aircraft has achieved factory roll-out, first flight, multiple certifications and now flyway.”

The 737 Max family is designed to offer greater range and lower operating costs than its predecessors, achieved through fuel-efficient engines, advanced systems and improved aerodynamics.

“The BBJ Max will be able to connect distant cities like a wide-body commercial jet,” said Laxton. “It’s one of the reasons why this game-changing aircraft outsold the competition four to one last year.”

Boeing has received orders for all three models in the family – the BBJ Max 7, BBJ Max 8, and BBJ Max 9 – and says the first delivery will be made in 2018.
