Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) has started production of the first ACJ320neo
with final assembly due to
begin in June, followed by the first delivery of the “green”
aircraft to Acropolis Aviation of the UK in the last quarter of
this year. A second ACJ320neo will follow by year-end.
Deliveries of the first ACJ319neo, for K5 Aviation, will begin in
the second quarter of 2019, marking a further step in the creation
of the new corporate jet family.
Orders for the ACJ320 Family now
total nine aircraft, comprising three ACJ319neo and six ACJ320neo
“New engines and Sharklets enable the
ACJ320neo Family to link even more of the world nonstop, in a
large and comfortable cabin that is the envy of other business jet
manufacturers,” said ACJ President, Benoit Defforge.
ACJ319neo can fly eight passengers 6,750 nm/12,500 km or 15 hours,
while the ACJ320neo can transport 25 passengers 6,000 nm/11,100 km
or 13 hours.
For customers wanting even more passenger capacity plus nonstop to
the world range, Airbus offers a complete family of VIP widebodies,
which includes the new ACJ330neo and even the ACJ350 XWB families.
