Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) has added a new program designed to reduce costs and accelerate deliveries of VIP jets. Introduced at the NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition in Las Vegas, BBJ Select provides an array of pre-designed modular cabin layout and configuration choices for customers. Previously, the company offered only completely custom-made interiors.
The modular layouts can be combined for a total of 144 unique cabin configurations, seating between 13 and 25 passengers depending on the design. Three color schemes are available on Select jets. While the company outfits a number of Boeing models for VIP use, BBJ Select is available solely for the 737-7.

“Boeing Business Jets is offering customers a new, streamlined approach to designing a unique, comfortable, and functional interior for our BBJ 737-7 jet,” said BBJ president Joe Benson. “For customers who may not have the time or desire to create a fully bespoke interior, BBJ Select offers pre-designed options to outfit their cabin, which allows us to offer the jet at a very attractive, fixed price.”
According to BBJ, the Select program saves time and money by removing costs for “one-time engineering and related work for the installation of a clean sheet cabin design.”
The company has partnered exclusively with completion centers Aloft AeroArchitects and Greenpoint Technologies for the program, with Boeing overseeing the design, build, and delivery of the aircraft. The setup allows customers to sign a single contract with Boeing rather than multiple ones for the aircraft and completion work.
While no firm orders have been announced, BBJ reports that the first Select jets could be ready to enter service in 2026.
