From Dreamliner to Dream Jet: the unique business jet arrived at Dubai Airshow 2017
The only Dreamliner available for charter arrived at Dubai Airshow 2017. It’s on a static display, open for visits. Just recently a Dream Jet, which is its marketing brand name, conducted a world tour giving exclusive previews to potential customers in Doha, Dublin, Hong Kong, Jeddah, London, Marrakech, Paris, Seattle, and Shanghai.
The Dream Jet is a flagship with Chinese company Deer Jet. Outside China, Dubai-headquartered UAS International Trip Support sells and promotes this VVIP-transport globally, following an agreement signed between two companies before the show. Almost a year ago, Deer Jet acquired a major stake in UAS and named the venture its flight support partner company for its fleet of 90 bizjets.
The Dream Jet is valued at $300 million. In total, 15 Boeing Business Jet BBJ-787s aircrafts have been ordered so far. The airplane is targeted at ultra high net worth individuals, heads of state and royal families.
It costs around $70,000 an hour (to hire), so it’s a very exclusive market

The aircraft is 220 sq feet of luxury interiors, able to fly 20-hours non-stop with 40 passengers on board. The BBJ 787’s world premiere was at the European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition in Geneva, last May.
