Jet Aviation announced yesterday that it has signed a completion contract for a BBJ MAX 9. The aircraft is due to be inducted into the company’s Basel completion facility early next year. The design, created by an external firm, will be engineered, crafted, installed, and certified by Jet Aviation.

“We are delighted to have been selected to complete this beautifully ornate cabin interior,” said Christoph Fondalinski, the company’s v-p of completions, adding customers are looking to bring the comfort and environment of a private residence to their aircraft. “We continue to push boundaries to create the ultimate cabin experience through innovative engineering such as our industry-leading balance of low cabin sound and weight, all at our exceptional level of craftsmanship.”

Jet Aviation delivered the first-ever BBJ MAX last year and for the company, this represents its third BBJ completion project booked this year. Earlier it signed a contract for a pair of BBJ MAX 8s scheduled to arrive in Basel in the first half of 2023. The two aircraft are part of a turnkey project with Boeing Business Jets for a head-of-state customer and will be fitted with interiors designed by the Jet Aviation design studio.
