Swiss-based charter and aircraft management specialist PrivatAir has become one of the first purchasers of an executive/VIP version of Boeing's new 787 airliner. The aircraft will complement PrivatAir's already substantial Boeing fleet, which includes a 767, a 757, a BBJ2 and three BBJs. Acquisition of the 787-which can carry 30 to 40 passengers nonstop to any city in the world-underlines "a growing demand from business travelers for long-range and large-cabin aircraft," according to a PrivatAir spokesman.

That demand is apparent in the rest of Boeing's order book for executive/VIP 787s. The company has sold five directly to the buyers and two more to leasing companies on behalf of end-users who wanted the airplanes sooner than they could have gotten them by purchasing directly from Boeing.

“Flying is like good music. It elevates the spirit and it's an exhilarating freedom. I love the machines, I love the aviation community. I used to own airplanes and have pilots flying them for me, but I finally realized they were having more fun than I was. ”
