The Boeing Business Jet series are variants of Boeing jet airliners for the corporate jet market.
Boeing 737-700 PH-Gov
The first BBJ is based on the 737-700 with a stronger wing and landing gear from the 737-800. Auxiliary belly fuel tanks extend range, over 6,000 nmi (11,000 km) with nine tanks (500 lb (230 kg) empty each), but most operators install five auxiliary fuel tanks to fly up to 5,400 nmi (10,000 km). In 2002, the -800-based BBJ2 offered a 25% larger cabin with a similar range with five tanks, with the 2009 BBJ3 based on the 737-900. Aviation Partners winglets gave the BBJ 5% more range. A standard, retractable forward airstair allows for autonomous operations at remote airports. Early interiors were way over the 13,000 lb (5.9 t) allowance and the BOWs reached 104,000–8,000 lb (47,200–3,600 kg) over spec, but newer interiors can be 25% lighter for 99,000–100,000 lb (45–45 t) empty weights.
BBJ, or less frequently BBJ1, is based on the 737-700, and formed the basis for the 737-700ER. This was the initial variant. In United States Navy service, this is known as the C-40B Clipper.
BBJ2 is based on the 737-800.
BBJ3 is based on the 737-900ER.
BBJ MAX 8 and BBJ MAX 9 are variants of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 9 with new CFM LEAP-1B engines and advanced winglets providing 13% better fuel burn; the BBJ MAX 8 will have a 6,325 nmi (11,710 km) range and the BBJ MAX 9 a 6,255 nmi (11,580 km) range. The BBJ MAX 7 was unveiled in October 2016 and will have a 7,000 nmi (12,960 km) range, with 10% lower operating costs than the original BBJ while having a longer cabin and more under-floor baggage space. The MAX BBJ 8 first flew on April 16, 2018, and will reach 6,640 nmi (12,300 km) with an auxiliary fuel tank. It was first delivered by mid-October.
