Air China Subsidiary Bumps Its BizJet Fleet To 11 With First
A Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) 737-700 IGW (Increased Gross Weight)
has been delivered to Beijing Airlines, a business jet subsidiary
of Air China. Mr. Wang Wei, vice general manager of Beijing
Airlines, took delivery of the airplane at a ceremony held at the
Boeing Delivery Center in Seattle Tuesday. This is the first BBJ
for Beijing Airlines bringing its fleet to 11 business jets.
"Air China has been doing business with Boeing for a long time,"
said Wang. "We're thrilled to grow that relationship with the
addition of our first BBJ to the Beijing Airlines fleet and look
forward to working with Boeing to meet the demand of the rapidly
expanding business jet market in China."
"Asia and particularly China has been a strong market for Boeing
Business Jets for several years," said Steve Taylor, BBJ president.
"Working with Beijing Airlines to bring them the best business jet
to fit their needs backed by unmatched customer support helps make
us even stronger in the region."
Next stop for the "green" BBJ is PATS Aircraft Systems in
Georgetown, Delaware where the extended range fuel system will be
installed. The airplane will then be flown to a completion center
of the customer's choice where the interior will be installed.
