Jet Aviation has signed a letter of intent with an unidentified client from the Middle East that will send the first executive Boeing 787 to the company’s Basel, Switzerland center for cabin completion. The airplane, a -9, is to be delivered to the Basel facility in 2011. The expected cycle time is 15 to 18 months. Jet Aviation has been working on an interior design package for the airplane for the past two-and-a-half years in partnership with yacht and corporate aircraft interior specialist Peder Eidsgaard.
