BBJ World Business Trip Adventure

Welcome to the World Business Trip like no other where we’ll be transporting some business executive partners to various destinations around the world to do their business! On board no other than the Outstanding Boeing 737-900 BBJ!


🇷🇪 The screenshot above shows the Boeing Business Jet B739 finally flying back to Mozambique flying over Réunion Island a couple moments after take-off after Being in Mauritius since September when I flew it there from Zimbabwe so the plane is currently sitting at Beira Mozambique right now and will go back to Zimbabwe soon! It depends on how long the business executives want to stay in Mozambique 😂 we landed back in Mozambique yesterday afternoon Central African Time

If you’re struggling to fully understand here’s the link for full story: Zimbabwe to Mauritius via Mozambique

As you can see from the video link above this whole journey started in Harare, Zimbabwe (FVRG), then flew to Mauritius via Beira (FQBR) Mozambique as the very first business route route and there’s more to come! all flights are on the Expert Server we might even end up travelling the whole world! There is no particular schedule for this Boeing Business Jet adventure trip so normally the Business partners decide where to go for their next destination mostly whilst staying in whatever country they are staying in and then I update it here on the latest reply on the thread, let’s see where the next adventure takes us!

If you find yourself reading along and it sounds like I’m talking in the present moment but the particular flight you’re reading about already happened days or weeks ago don’t worry just act like you’re also in that present moment as you go along the thread, I don’t really know how to put it but hopefully you understand haha. Let’s go!

Here’s the BBJ3 B739 in Real Life, cool isn’t it?

After spending 2 days in Doha, Qatar we were now ready to continue the trip to Marseille, France via Istanbul, Turkey today! The stop in Turkey would be very quick because it was just to pick up another business partner in Istanbul and quickly refuel then shortly after continue to Marseille, France. It was a very nice calm day of flying today :

We landed in Bordeaux to do some quick final meetings there before leaving France and moving on to the next country and are currently on the ground there Preparing for our next flight this afternoon!

Thanks very much

THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES!

Wow! The Business partners had been in Lisbon since 9 January they really enjoyed this lengthy stay here in Portugal, they formed some new relations with some Portuguese businesses linked to the Mozambicans picked up from Nampula, Mozambique from one of the 1st flights on the adventure! At the same time they enjoyed their fabulous stay in the Lovely Lisbon and I’m sure they’ll want to be back someday, however 4 partners stayed in Lisbon and we continued. Today they finally decided to leave Portugal head to the UK some more business, today We flew out from Lisbon (LPPT) to London Stansted (EGSS). The original plan was to fly into London Heathrow (EGLL) but after further analysis we ended up agreeing to fly to Stansted instead!

This was a very good day for flying with nice weather, Preparing for departure at Lisbon:


Bye-Bye Portugal! Let’s go to London! We took off at 2:37 PM

Went to park the BBJ3 at one of the maintenance aprons and it will be checked on by engineers, this is where it’ll be staying whilst the Executives are in London until it’s next flight, it’s last checkup was in Paris!



Today’s flight from the live map, Flight time was 2h28m

But otherwise it was such a nice flight and lets see which part of the world the Executives agree to travel to next to do their thing, it could be in Europe, or Asia or up North or even West who knows these executives are unpredictable haha. But for now they’re in the amazing city of London and im sure they’ll enjoy their stay, see you on the next one!

And just like that! After spending 3 days in London the business partners already decided to move on to their next country, The Netherlands! To meet up with some Dutch business partners in Rotterdam, not too long or far of a journey by plane!

We started of where we left off like always, in this case it’s London Stansted (EGSS) - Parked at the maintenence apron:


In no time we were ready for Pushback:

Bye-Bye London, on course to the Netherlands! We took off from RWY 22



Leaving the United Kingdom, I’m sure the Executives will be back some day😉

We cruised at 24000ft for 8 minutes, but just after only 11 minutes of flight time we started our descent into Rotterdam (EHRD), for a plane coming from London the Netherlands is right there haha

Hello Hello Netherlands :

We did a cool approach into Rotterdam (EHRD) as we flew over the airport first then made a smooth left turn and maintained 2000ft until i decided to disengage the autopilot. Approach:



Left turn whilst maintaining 2000ft :


Final Approach, Auto-pilot disengaged RWY 24:

Welcome to Rotterdam in The Netherlands!

Taxiing to parking:

After arrival, we got special permission to park at the [FBO- KLM JET CENTRE 02] apron for the time the business partners are in the Netherlands which we don’t know how long it’s going to be, this is where the plane will be staying until it’s next journey which is unknown at the moment. Parked:



Today’s flight from the live flight map:


Flight time today was 37 minutes

Today was such a nice flight, and like I said in the past, these business partners are unpredictable lol, who knows which country they’ll choose and agree to fly to next? It could be in Europe, Asia far south or even far west. And when will it be? See you on the next one

We parked at the 1st Maintenence apron and this is where the plane will be staying for the next couple of hours until it’s next flight tonight!


The Business executives just took their hand luggage off the plane because they aren’t sleeping in Athens because they have an urgent Business meeting in Abu Dhabi Tommorow, they’ll just be sorting out some logistical things in the Capital Athens to prepare for their trip to the United Arab Emirates tonight!

Flight time today Rotterdam (EHRD) to Athens (LGAV) was 3 hours and it was a very nice flight
