A whole new world of luxury awaits the mega-rich, if these pictures are anything to go by.

A customised 747-8 International Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) sporting eight private sleeping cabins (pictured) and a changing room was delivered to an unnamed VIP customer last week.

Dubbed the ‘Aeroloft’ – it was designed and built specifically for the BBJ 747-8 plane and has been installed in the section of airplane above the main cabin between the upper deck and the plane’s tail.

The jet was flown from Wichita in Kansas, US to Lufthansa Technik in Hamburg, Germany to have the rest of its luxury interior completed.

Boeing’s Business Jets (BBJ) are targeted to private, royal family and government heads of state customers.

Two more BBJ 747-8s furnished with the Aeroloft will be delivered to VIPs by the year-end, Boeing says.
