Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) is showing an ACJ319 at European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, giving potential customers the opportunity to see for themselves how they can fly in greather comfort and space than in traditional business jets.
The aircraft, which is being shown for the first time at EBACE, is operated by K5 Aviation and is available for VVIP charter. It is certificated for 19 passengers.
“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,” says 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 per cent fuel-saving, enabling nonstop travel to even more of the world in the best cabin in the sky.
The new family comprises an ACJ319neo that can fly eight passengers 15 hours or 6,750 nm/12,500 km, and an ACJ320neo that can transport 25 passengers 13 hours or 6,000 nm/11,100 km.
Deliveries of the new models, which have already won 14 orders and commitments, began earlier this year.
Airbus has won around 15,000 firm orders for the whole A320 Family, and over 750 A320neo Family aircraft are already in service with airlines.
