Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) will exhibit an ACJ319 at the Dubai show, highlighting the value of a “best in class” cabin to potential customers.
The ACJ319 on display is operated by Comlux on VVIP charters, is certificated to carry 19 passengers in enviable comfort, and features a cabin with a lounge and two private rooms – each of which can be arranged to serve as a lounge/office or bedroom.
“All business jets save time and deliver convenience, but only Airbus corporate jets provide “best in class” comfort, space and freedom and, what’s more, they have similar operating costs to traditional business jets,” says Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers, John Leahy. “And the new ACJneo Family brings even more range to fly “your world above the world’, “he adds.
The ACJ319 is the entry level into the world’s most modern and comprehensive corporate jet family. Today, this family ranges from the ACJ319neo, through the ACJ330neo to the ACJ350 XWB and beyond, offering customers the comfort and capacity that customers want, in the size that they need.
Flying eight passengers 6,750 nm/12,500 km or 15 hours, the ACJ319neo will bring much of the world within nonstop range. Complementing it is the ACJ320neo, which will fly 25 passengers 6,000 nm/11,100 km or 13 hours.
Deliveries of the ACJ320neo begin at the end of 2018, while those of the ACJ319neo start in the second quarter of 2019. Total orders stand at nine, comprising three ACJ319neo and six ACJ320neo aircraft.
For customers that want to transport more passengers and fly farther, Airbus VIP widebodies offer a modern and proven solution.
The ACJ330neo will fly 25 passengers 9,400 nm/17,400 km or 20 hours, while the ACJ350XWB will fly them 10,800 nm/20,000 km or 22 hours.
