Exciting Feature …Boeing Business Jets, GKN Aerospace Create Skyview Panoramic Window


Boeing Business Jets has announced collaboration with GKN Aerospace's Fokker business to develop, produce, offer and support the Skyview Panoramic Window, the largest window available on any passenger jet.

BBJ says the Skyview Panoramic Window, measuring approximately 4.5 feet by 1.5 foot (1.4 x 0.5 m), will be available as a feature on the BBJ, BBJ 2, and all three members of the BBJ MAX family, including the new BBJ MAX 7 which is scheduled to enter into service in 2018.

"We are thrilled to formally confirm our partnership with GKN Aerospace's Fokker business for the development of this fantastic feature on the BBJ, the largest airplane window available in the market as it is created by effectively joining three existing 737 windows together. It offers customers an unparalleled perspective of the world," states Boeing Business Jets President, David Longridge.

Peter Somers, President of GKN's Fokker Services business, observes: "We are proud to announce the next step for the Skyview Panoramic window together with Boeing Business Jets. The innovative technology applied in the largest window in the market, enhances passenger comfort and is now also available for BBJ MAX airplanes."

Boeing Business Jets discloses that the window will be available through GKN Aerospace's Fokker business as a retrofit on existing BBJs, and through Boeing Business Jets as a priced feature, adding that it will be delivered on BBJ MAX airplanes starting in 2018.
