Boeing has launched what it is calling the longest-range business jet in the industry, a plane that can fly more than halfway around the world without stopping.

The BBJ 777X is a private or charter business jet built for the flashy jetsetter, the CEO, heads of state and other moneyed travelers.

With a range of 11,645 nautical miles or 21,570 km, Boeing says its BBJ 777-8 jet can connect virtually any two cities in the world.

For context, the average flight distance between New York and Singapore is 15,350 km.

Interior concepts for the aircraft feature a rich, creamy white and gold color palette, silk cushions, elaborate ceiling crown molding and marbleized tabletops.

The BBJ 777-8 also features 3,256 square feet (302.5 sq m) of cabin space.

Boeing Business Jets specializes in private air travel, with models that can be customized for private, business or governmental sectors. Amenities can include an in-flight office, bedroom, shower, dining facilities and entertainment areas.
