Airbus has won its first corporate jet sale in Japan, adding a new customer and building on its growing presence in the important Asia Pacific market.

The aircraft, an Airbus ACJ318, has one of the widest and tallest cabins of any corporate jet, while being similar in size externally to traditional business jets.

Our first Airbus corporate jet sale in Japan builds on the growing presence of our modern airliner family, as well as encouraging greater use of business jets to help grow what is, today, the worlds third-largest economy, said Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers, John Leahy. Cabin comfort and space are key in our business, and Airbus corporate jets offer more of these than any other business jet.

Corporate jets are widespread in many of the worlds economies, but are still proportionately few in some of the largest, such as Japan, where the opening of the first dedicated business terminal in Tokyo, Premier Gate Narita, will help to pave the way for more of them.

They are primarily used as business tools, helping company executives, billionaires and government leaders to accomplish more with their time, and to be more productive while travelling.

Airbus has have won some 170 orders since it delivered its first corporate jet in the mid-Eighties.
