Imagine if you owned a 2,400-square-foot luxury home with the ability to fly you and 39 of your closest friends to anywhere you want in less than 17 hours. Next month, China's HNA Group will take delivery of a new Boeing 787-8 private jet. As configured, the 787 Boeing Business Jet, has a range of almost 9,800 miles even when packed with 40 passengers, luggage, and fuel.
With a flying time of about 17 hours, the plane can reach virtually any destination on earth, Kestrel Aviation Management CEO Stephen Vella told Business Insider. From start to finish, the aviation consulting firm, Kestrel Aviation, oversaw the creation of this 787.
Chinese business aviation company Deer Jet will operate the VVIP Boeing 787 Dreamliner on show here when it arrives in Hong Kong in July.
The aircraft will be the first VVIP 787 in the world available for charter. It will be managed by Hongkong Jet, and Deer Jet will help promote it and arrange flight crew and maintenance, says Deer Jet vice president Frank Fang. Both companies are part of the HNA Group, which also includes Hainan Airlines and its fleet of Boeing 787 airliners.
The 40-passenger luxury airliner will be well-suited for high-end luxury for the wealthy, says Fang, and Deer Jet will help try to develop them with companies such as the China-based HNA-Caissa Touristic Group.
