unidentified customer in the Middle East has placed a firm order for two A318 Elites, highlighting the growing success of the newest and most affordable
member of the Airbus Corporate Jetliner (ACJ) Family.
Both aircraft will feature the classic VIP cabin created by Lufthansa Technik in partnership with Airbus. They willl be powered by CFM International
Launched towards the end of 2005, Airbus A318 Elite deliveries began in May 2007, and the type is now a firmly established
member of the Airbus ACJ Family, representing about a quarter of the more than 100 firm orders won to date.
Airbus A318 Elite has a range of 4,200 nm/7,800 km with eight passengers - enough to fly non-stop from London to New York - as well as
from anywhere in Europe to anywhere in the Middle East, or transcontinentally throughout Africa, America or Asia.
Airbus' A318 Elite features the same wide, tall and spacious cabin as the rest of the family, in a slightly shorter cabin length, but still has the
space for a private office/bedroom with ensuite bathroom, as well as a large living area that is bigger than the entire cabin of smaller jets.
