Riyadh-based Alpha Star has become the first to announce a commitment for an Airbus ACJ319neo, consolidating its role as one of the largest VVIP charter operators in the Middle East.

Delivery of Alpha Stars ACJ319neo is planned for the second quarter of 2019.

Middle East customers already recognise and appreciate the greater comfort, capacity and capability of Airbus corporate jets, so new and improved versions are a natural next step when it comes to investing for the future, said Alpha Star CEO, Salem Al Muzaini. Being first in the region with the Airbus ACJneo Family will also help us to maintain our lead in VVIP charters.

Alpha Star currently owns, manages and operates a fleet of Airbus corporate jets, comprising ACJ318s, ACJ319s, ACJ320s, an ACJ330, an ACJ340, and other aircraft types.

Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers, John Leahy, said, The greater range of the ACJneo Family will allow Alpha Stars customers to take their lifestyles even farther. The ACJ Familys modern features, such as fly-by-wire, centralised maintenance and carbonfibre, will also carry it farther into the future.

Airbus new ACJneo Family currently comprises an ACJ319neo, which can fly eight passengers up to 6,750nm/12,500km, or more than 15 hours, and an A320neo that can transport 25 passengers up to 6,000 nm/11,200 km, or more than 13 hours.
