Representatives of Nanshan Jet took delivery of the airplane at the Boeing Delivery Center in Seattle. This is the first BBJ for Nanshan Jet and one of the first aircraft the company will operate on its own.
The BBJ will provide charter services for corporations, government agencies and private individuals in China.
Boeing delivers the BBJ to the customer 'green' (no interior or paint) so it can be customized to suit specific needs and tastes. Nanshan Jet has selected Lufthansa Technik's U.S. Subsidiary, BizJet International, to complete its BBJ interior in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It will be configured to carry 28 passengers.
Three of four BBJ orders and three of seven deliveries this year were to customers in China.
