Taiwanese receive BBJ tour

Boeing gave a guided tour of its Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) to Taiwanese billionaires on Thursday, in the hope of tapping into what it sees as a developing luxury market.

The luxury jet, which has a non-stop flight range of 13 hours, is equipped with conference rooms, a master bedroom, an office, kitchen and a cafeteria. It is priced at around US$90 million, with an additional 5 percent to 8 percent per annum in maintenance fees.

The company has sold 157 BBJs worldwide, including one to Evergreen Group (長榮集團) founder and chairman Chang Yung-fa (張榮發).
