DUBAI: Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) is extending its market leadership in the Middle East with upcoming deliveries of two BBJ 747-8s for head-of-state customers in the region.

Of the nine BBJ 747-8s that have been ordered to date, all but one are for customers in the Middle East. It is the largest selling region for BBJs, comprising more than 30 percent of the market.

“Despite the global economic downturn, the Middle East region remains a very strong market for both single-aisle and twin-aisle VIP airplanes,” said Captain Steve Taylor, president, Boeing Business Jets. 

“Our customers want an aircraft capable of connecting virtually any two cities in the world,” said Taylor.
