Al Jaber Group's new aviation division, Al Jaber Aviation (AJA) , has placed a new firm order for two Airbus Corporate Jetliners (ACJs) and
revealed a previously undisclosed order for two A318 Elites, adding to a previous deal for two A318 Elites. The order makes AJA the largest
single customer for the Airbus ACJ Family in the Middle East, with total orders for six aircraft.
"Our Airbus ACJ Family aircraft will offer private travel in unprecedented comfort and style, providing families and companies with a new way to
fly," said Al Jaber Group Chief Executive Officer Mohammed Al Jaber. "In addition to the huge improvement in space and comfort, high-end
travellers in the Airbus ACJ Family will also benefit from separate cabin-zones and unmatched freedom of movement in
Airbus' A318 Elite is the newest and most affordable Airbus corporate jet, and features a stylish and practical cabin created by Lufthansa
Technik, with seating for up to 18 passengers. The Airbus ACJ is derived from the popular A319 airliner, and can be equipped with seating and
facilities tailored to customer needs.
Both aircraft feature the widest, tallest and most spacious cabin of any single-aisle corporate jet - their cabin cross-section is almost twice as
wide as that of traditional business jets - making them the new top-of-the-line in high-end travel.
The ACJ Family, which comprises the A318 Elite, ACJ and A320 Prestige, delivers many benefits to the pilots and mechanics that fly and
maintain them. These include a modern and user-friendly cockpit with practical pull-out tables, modern fly-by-wire controls, Category 3B
autoland as standard, centralised maintenance linked to every aircraft system, and large outward-opening cargo doors.
