Business jet Boeing 777

Boeing’s ‘Big Twin’ 777, in its long range version, is the latest aircraft to join the VIP fleet provided by Aviation Link Co in the Middle East.

The 777-200LR interior completion work will begin at Amac Aerospace of Basel, Switzerland, later this month.  An undisclosed, private owner in the Middle East will take delivery of the aeroplane after VIP cabin completion in 2012.

“Despite the global economic downturn, the Middle East region remains a very strong market for both single-aisle and twin-aisle VIP airplanes,” said Steve Taylor, President of Boeing Business Jets. 

“The customer required a widebody aircraft capable of connecting virtually any two cities in the world non-stop, while carrying a full cargo load,” said Al Rowaished, President and Chief Executive Officer Aviation Link Co.  “After a thorough review of the market, the 777-200LR was the natural choice.” www.boeing.com/commercial
