Boeing has unveiled two new longest-range business jet models of BBJ 777X at the bi-annual Middle East Business Aviation Association Show (MEBAA).

Customers can choose between two models: the BBJ 777-8 and BBJ 777-9. The BBJ 777-8 offers the longest range of 11,645 nautical miles (21,570 km) and a spacious 3,256 sq. ft. (302.5 sq m) cabin, the company said in a statement Monday.

The BBJ 777-9 provides a larger cabin measuring 3,689 sq. ft. (342.7 sq m) and has a range of 11,000 nautical miles (20,370 km).

BBJ unveiled the interior concepts from three leading design firms: Greenpoint Technologies, Jet Aviation, and Unique Aircraft Design. Each concept shows how the BBJ 777X can be transformed to suit the tastes of any VIP customer.

Boeing announced it recently booked another order for its BBJ MAX family. The order from an unidentified customer brings total orders for the BBJ MAX to 21.

Based on Boeing's 737 MAX airplane, Boeing claims that the BBJ MAX offers three times the cabin space as most of its competitors, a lower cabin altitude, and the ability to fly 7,000 nautical miles (12,964 km).
