Airbus will display two corporate jets at the MEBA show, giving visitors an opportunity to see the widest and tallest cabin of any business jet in elegantly different arrangements.
The aircraft are the backbone of the Airbus corporate jet family, which have a strong presence in the important Middle East market.
They comprise an Airbus ACJ318 operated on VVIP charter flights by Al Jaber Aviation (AJA), and the ACJ319 of a private Middle East customer.
“We make corporate jets out of the world’s most modern aircraft family,” explains Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers John Leahy, “which means that we start with great aircraft with spacious cabins and then make them even better, allowing customers to take into the air the comfort and space of their lifestyles on the ground.”
“That’s something that Middle East customers have long appreciated, because it’s where we sold our first corporate jet in the mid-1980s, and it’s still the most important market for widebody corporate jets today,” he adds.
Airbus’ corporate jet family ranges from the ACJ318 all the way up to the double-deck A380, giving customers an unparalleled choice of the comfort that that they want, in the size that they need.
The newest member of the Airbus corporate jet family is the ACJ318 Enhanced, featuring a cabin upgrade and wider choice of options. This is complemented by improved versions of the Airbus A330 which, together with the A340, can be allied to a new widebody cabin package called the Gala concept.
Airbus corporate jets are the new gold-standard in business aviation, delivering unmatched comfort, space and productivity to the world’s leaders - on every continent, in every market, in every style.
