Airbus Corporate Jets has won a new commitment for an ACJ320neo from an undisclosed customer. The deal includes turnkey cabin outfitting – a first for the new ACJneo Family.
Airbus’ ACJ319neo and ACJ320neo feature new-generation engines, sharklets and a collection of other improvements to deliver most of the benefits of an all-new design. These include better range and a 16 per cent fuel saving, combined with the best corporate jet cabin in the sky.
Turnkey cabin-outfittings, managed by Airbus on behalf of customers, deliver peace of mind for aircraft performance, as well as the interior. Airbus leads the top-end of the market in turnkeys, having successfully completed more than 70 with a variety of cabin-outfitters.
“Combining our new aircraft family with unrivalled turnkey experience is a win-win for Airbus corporate jet customers, enabling them to plan for a better future with confidence,” comments Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers John Leahy.
The ACJ320neo can fly 25 passengers 6,000 nm/11,400 km or more than 13 hours, while the ACJ319neo can transport eight passengers 6,750 nm/12,500 km or more than 15 hours.
This impressive performance is underpinned by new technologies that are standard in all of the modern Airbus aircraft family in production today. These include the simplicity and protection of fly-by-wire controls, today’s industry standard in next-generation corporate jets, plus the practical benefits of time and cost-saving centralised maintenance.
Airbus corporate jet customers also benefit from a worldwide network of technical advice and spares and training centres that is sized to meet the needs of more than 500 customers and operators flying over 9,000 aircraft. This support includes customer care dedicated to the particular needs of corporate jet customers, which fly less than airlines.
More than 180 Airbus corporate jets are in service around the world, flying with companies, individuals and governments on every continent, including Antarctica.
