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.

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

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.

Boeing Business Jets offers a complete portfolio of ultra-large-cabin, long-range airplanes perfectly suited for Government and Head of State operations. The product line includes the BBJ, BBJ 2 and BBJ 3 – high-performance derivatives of the commercially successful Next-Generation 737 airplane family and the new 737 MAX family – as well as Boeing twin-aisle airplanes including the 747-8, 767, 777 and 787 Dreamliner.
