The design process that started in March of 2012 has produced one of the most novel designs yet to be seen in a VVIP conversion, focussing on high quality of materials and innovative lay-out solutions. A fractional ownership gives customers full access to the bigger Airbus jets, for a cost that is less than the purchase cost of smaller business jets.

Actual conversion of the first A-319 will start before the end of the year, the total fleet is to be operational by 2015.
