Saudi Arabian client becomes first VIP customer for the Airbus A340-600

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com 20 June 2005

A private non-governmental business group of Saudi Arabia, which already has a VIP A320, has acquired an Airbus A340-600, becoming the first VIP customer for the ultra-long range aircraft.

Both Airbus aircraft will be operated by Jeddah-based National Air Services (NAS), which already operates a fleet of VIP A320 Family aircraft.

Delivery of the “green” aircraft, ahead of cabin outfitting, is planned for end-2006.

The Airbus’ A340-600 has the range and flexibility to make the longest flights, and features a cabin of intercontinental proportions.

”While our biggest market is for aircraft such as the Airbus Corporate Jetliner (ACJ), there is a need for larger VIP aircraft, as the Saudi Arabian commitment demonstrates,” said Airbus Vice President Private and Executive Aviation Richard Gaona. “And whether a customer wants an Airbus ACJ or a larger one, we have the dedication and expertise to supply it.”
