Boeing MD 83 refurbisment


The BOEING MD-83: unique in its class

Unique VVIP design

A complete cockpit to fuselage refurbishment of this workhorse aircraft took over a year to complete and involved some 25,000 person-hours from all disciplines. The idea had to allow heads of state or business to travel to any destination in exceptional comfort and privacy, with a full staff on board. The design therefore is built around the concept of a studied balance between productive space and private space. The floor plan is in three sections. At the fore is the VIP lounge, comprising 13 seats in a layout that allows for exchange as well as focus. In the centre, the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and private lounge (5 seats) is the perfect environment to relax or concentrate in peace. The aft cabin holds a further 8 business class seats and 16 coach class seats. In the case of government use, the layout provides the benefit of proximity for staff while maintaining privacy for the head of state. The cherrywood and almond décor makes for a light and airy atmosphere.

Unique range

With a total of 12 fuel tanks, the aircraft range has been extended from 2500nm to 4000nm, opening up a whole new range of possible destinations. As a narrow-body aircraft , it can access more airports autonomously compared to a wide-body aircraft with landing limitations.

Unique pricing

The MD-83 now has a greater capacity than a BBJ (maximum 35 seats), yet the price tag is one-third that of a wide-body aircraft.
In the charter marketplace, for the same price, clients will find jets with only half the passenger capacity and no bedroom. Combining these key aspects with the VVIP configuration means SX-IFA is likely to put significant pressure on charter business aviation competitors. It is the only ETOPS-equipped VVIP Boeing MD-83 available for charter in the world that offers premium business
aviation travelers such a notable mix of range, price and comfort.
