Jet Aviation has redelivered the first-ever BBJ Max to an undisclosed customer. The completion, the company’s third of the year, was conducted at its Basel, Switzerland facility, which handled all of the design, crafting, and engineering on the project. Its cabin, which was built and installed on-site, includes woven wooden paneling, full-flat cocoon seats finished in 3D wood veneer, and a wine storage cooler in the living area.

“The brief was for a cozy, residential space in which one could relax and enjoy the ride,” said Grischa Schmidt, senior design director of Jet Aviation’s design studio. "The living area features a deep, inviting sofa, a seven-seat dining table for socializing, and a well-equipped, functional kitchen to accommodate fine dining. Wooden detail, soft fabrics, and indirect lighting all complement this residential and relaxing atmosphere.”

“As our first BBJ 737 Max, this was an opportunity to familiarize ourselves with the next generation of this aircraft, and we look forward to applying that knowledge to future Max projects,” added Matthew Woollaston, the company’s v-p of completion sales.
