Private Asian Customer orders Airbus A320 Prestige

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Wednesday, 17 June 2009

A private Asian customer has placed a firm order for an Airbus A320 Prestige, becoming the first to order the aircraft type in the region.

Based on the modern A320 airliner, but featuring a customised cabin, extra fuel-tanks for intercontinental range, and a host of other features, the Airbus A320 Prestige has one of the largest cabins in its class.

Airbus' ACJ Family comprises the A318 Elite, Airbus ACJ and A320 Prestige.

Airbus A320 Prestige customers have the freedom to outfit their cabin to suit their individual tastes and, with more than 96 m2/1,030 ft2 of floorspace at their disposal, are well placed to extend into the air the comfort and space that they already enjoy in their accommodation on the ground.

The size of the Airbus A320 Prestige's cabin also means that it is able to carry larger groups - corporate colleagues, families and government delegations - than traditional business jets.

Total sales of the Airbus ACJ Family now stand at more than 100 which, together with the 50 or so VIP and government widebodies also in service, make up an increasingly popular part of the modern Airbus product line.
