Boeing Business Jets and the Government of Poland announced an order for three Next-Generation 737s at a signing ceremony held in Warsaw, Poland, on the 31st of March 2017.

The order includes two new Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) 2 airplanes and one 737-800, which will be operated by the Government of Poland as head-of-state aircraft for the president and top government officials. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in late 2017 and run through 2020.

“We have a great airplane, which will be very well equipped. This airplane can run the country from the air,” said Deputy Defense Minister Bartosz Kownacki

“We are proud that the Government of Poland selected Boeing Business Jets as their new head-of-state aircraft,” said Greg Laxton, Vice President, Boeing Business Jets. “Boeing is committed to Poland and we look forward to continuing our long and successful partnership.”

A political decision regarding the construction of a new airport will be taken in 2017, Polish Minister of Infrastructure and Architecture Andrzej Adamczyk said. The Ministry of Development is currently looking for investors.

According to Boeing, the BBJ 2 is a derivative of the 737-800 commercial airplane and is capable of flying nonstop from Warsaw to New York with 30 passengers.
