The ‘Panoramic Window’ sets a new standard for personalizing and designing VIP aircraft interiors. The ‘Panoramic Window’ measures 54.5 inches wide, slightly larger than three window bays and will offer a height of 19.5 inches, approximately 40% taller than the existing windows. It is being designed for the BBJ, based on the737-700 NG model aircraft, and would also be available for the upcoming BBJ MAX. A mock-up of the “Panoramic Window’ can be seen at Fokker Services Booth 3223.
“This innovative design is the latest example of Boeing Business Jets’ commitment to continually improving our product offerings with increased flexibility to meet customer requirements,” said Steve Taylor, president Boeing Business Jets. “Working with Fokker Services to develop the Panoramic Window will enable us to offer our customers, for the first-time, unmatched views outside the airplane cabin and a better flying experience.”
James Aspell, VP Technical Services and Aircraft Completions & Conversions at Fokker Services said: “This innovation re-confirms Fokker Services position as a creative design and completions organization developing products that enhance the customer experience. This is a real game changer that offers owners, operators and passengers a distinctively new way to experience VIP air travel.
