Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) is showing an ACJ319 at EBACE, giving potential customers the opportunity to see for themselves how they can fly in “greater comfort and space” than in traditional business jets.
The aircraft is being shown for the first time at the European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition, which is a premier event and the annual meeting place for the European business aviation community. It is certificated for 19 passengers.
EBACE takes place in Geneva, from May 21 to 23.
“Seeing for yourself what a great travel experience you can have in an Airbus corporate jet really highlights the greater comfort and space on offer, which you can have at a competitive price,” said ACJ president Benoit Defforge.
ACJ is growing its ACJ320 Family with new models, which feature new engines and wingtip-mounted ‘Sharklets’ to deliver a 15% fuel-saving, enabling nonstop travel to even more of the world in the best cabin in the sky.
The new family comprises an ACJ319neo2 that can fly eight passengers 15 hours or 6,750nm/12,500km, and an ACJ320neo that can transport 25 passengers 13 hours or 6,000nm/11,100km.
Deliveries of the new models, which have already won 14 orders and commitments, began earlier this year.
Airbus said it has won around 15,000 firm orders for the whole A320 Family, and over 750 A320neo Family aircraft are already in service with airlines.
Airbus’ A320 family exemplifies features that are now standard throughout its modern family — such as the enhanced-protection of fly-by-wire controls, cost-saving centralised maintenance and weight-saving carbon fibre.
It is complemented by the VVIP 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 in service today, 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.
