After entering service in 2021, the BBJ 737-8 airplane is the very first BBJ 737 MAX and one of the most luxurious ways to take to the skies.

Defined as a ‘higher evolution of comfort and luxury’ – it’s upped the game of business aviation and is currently on display at the 2024 European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition in Geneva.

What’s more, with an unprecedented combination of extended range and fuel efficiency – it boasts functionality as well as breathtaking form.

From the outside, the 98 ft 6 in/30 m private jet has a chic taupe upper, paired with a brown lower and brown accent stripe flowing up the tail.

With 15 hours of non-stop range, the BBJ 737 MAX can travel to 6,600nmi/12,220km.

Inside it has up to three times the space of a typical private jet.

Catering for up to 17 of the most discerning travelers, its VVIP five-zone cabin configuration deserves a walk-through.

Beginning at the front of the BBJ 737 MAX is a screened-off crew rest area, lavatory, and storage including three large closets.

Enter zone one and you’ll come to a fully-equipped galley kitchen and buffet bar.

The port side of the BBJ 737 MAX consists of two two-place club seats with a 43″ ultra-high-definition monitor.

Walking on to zone three, the aft lounge consists of a five-place ‘L; shaped divan and a single seat situated on the left surrounding two Hi-Lo tables.

This sits opposite a retractable 50” ultra-high definition monitor and two single seats.

Carry on to zone four and you’ll come to the Guest Suite boasting a queen-sized bed, large closet, bench seat with storage beneath, and a 43″ ultra-high-definition monitor.

There’s also a bathroom with a full-size shower.

And finally to the pièce de résistance of zone five: the master suite, which can rival a 5* hotel.

It includes a queen bed with two nightstands, a single seat with a pull-out table, a closet, a dresser, and a 43″ wall-mounted monitor.

This flows through to the master bathroom with a lavatory, standup shower, closets, and side stowage.
