With 12 jet deliveries to completion centers and another 12 outfitted bizliners handed over to clients in 2012, Boeing Business Jets is celebrating what it calls “a monumental year.” Company president Steve Taylor described last year as “terrific,” noting that the company met its goal of “12 [green] and 12 [completed deliveries] in 2012.” In addition, with the delivery of eight new 747-8s for completion, 2012 was a record year for Boeing Business Jets in terms of delivery value, totaling more than $3 billion last year.

There were also a number of firsts for the company last year: the first 747-8 to be delivered to a completion center for executive interior outfitting (coincidentally also the first 747-8 off the assembly line); the first 747-8 in which the Aeroloft kit from Greenpoint Technologies was installed; and entry into service of the first BBJ3s and the first BBJ777-200LR. According to Taylor, “2013 will be just as exciting, with delivery of the first BBJ787” to a completion center in the fourth quarter.
