Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) is highlighting an ACJ319 at the ABACE¹ show, demonstrating the benefits of the best business jet cabin in the sky. The aircraft, which is being shown for the first time, is operated by EVA Airways and available for VVIP charter.
It features a stylish Hermes-designed cabin, two spacious lounges, a conference/dining area, a private office/bedroom with ensuite bathroom, and is certificated for 19 passengers.
"Business jets are about having a great travel experience, as well as getting somewhere, and Airbus corporate jets deliver the widest and tallest cabin in an aircraft family that is modern, able to welcome large groups, and economical," says ACJ President Benoit Defforge.
The new family comprises an ACJ319neo² that can fly eight passengers 15 hours or 6,750 nm/12,500 km, and an ACJ320neo that can transport 25 passengers 13 hours or 6,000 nm/11,100 km. ACJ has already won 13 orders and commitments for NEO family aircraft.
ACJ is growing its ACJ320 Family with new models, which feature new engines and wingtip-mounted Sharklets to deliver a 15 per cent fuel-saving, enabling nonstop travel in a great cabin to even more of the world.
Airbus has won more than 15,000 firm orders for the whole A320 Family, and over 700 A320neo Family aircraft are already in service with airlines.
Airbus' A320 Family exemplifies features that are now standard in almost all new-generation business jets - such as enhanced-protection fly-by-wire controls, cost-saving centralised maintenance and weight-saving carbonfibre.
It is complemented by theVVIP widebody ACJ330neo and ACJ350 XWB Families, which deliver even more capacity and nonstop to the world range.
Airbus corporate jets are supported around the world, around the clock, by a network of advice, spares and training centres serving some 11,000 aircraft, as well as services tailored to the particular needs of business jet operators.
Some 200 Airbus corporate jets are in service worldwide, flying on every continent, including Antarctica.
