The world’s largest business aviation jet touched down at London Stansted airport this week, ahead of a globe-spanning charter programme.
The B787 Dream Jet can accommodate up to 30 passengers, and features a master bedroom with en suite shower room, 18 fully flat first class seats, and a lounge area for meetings, entertaining and relaxation.
Managed by business aviation group Deer Jet, a subsidiary of Chinese conglomerate HNA Group, the aircraft has a range of 9,800 miles, with possible non-stop routes including London to Beijing and Hong Kong to Los Angeles.
Charter prices have not been officially published, but are believed to be in excess of £20,000 (US$26,000) per hour. A bespoke charter package “Hong Kong to Tahiti Dream Journey” is also available, including a seven-night stay in the Presidential Suite at the St Regis Bora Bora Resort.
