US — These new business jets 'will be able to fly more than half-way around the world' according to a Boeing press release.
Boeing Business Jets unveiled two new models, the BBJ 777-8 and BBJ 777-9.
The BBJ 777-8 can fly about 22,000 kilometers with roughly 300 square meters of cabin space.
The BBJ 777-9 has an even larger cabin with about 340 square meters of space and the ability to fly an ultra-long range of roughly 20,000 kilometers.
The company has unveiled cabin space designs it has created in collaboration with Greenpoint Technologies, Jet Aviation, and Unique Aircraft Design which it claims 'can be transformed to suit the tastes of any VIP customer.'
The new models' flying range will allow them to cover non-stop flights from Australia's east coast to London and New York.
