Airbus shows off VVIP ACJ319 to attract new customers for ACJ319neo & ACJ320neo
Airbus exhibited a VVIP ACJ319 at Jet Expo in Moscow to emphasize the benefits of a more spacious cabin. This aircraft is operated as a charter by MJet and features lounge areas plus a bedroom with ensuite bathroom and is certified for 19 passengers.
Airbus also used this opportunity to highlight the advantages of two new aircraft launched earlier this year, the ACJ319neo and ACJ320neo. The ACJ319neo will fly eight passengers up to 6,750 nm/12,500 km or more than 15 hours, while the ACJ320neo will transport 25 passengers up to 6,000 nm/11, 100 km or more than 13 hours.
The increased range is made possible by more fuel efficient engines and the addition of Sharklet wingtips to reduce drag as well as improve takeoff and landing performance. The two aircraft also will have a cabin altitude averaging less that 6,400 ft (1,950 m), which will make for a more pleasant passenger experience.
“Airbus corporate jets deliver many benefits that traditional bizjets often lack, such as modern fly-by-wire controls, larger diameter more-efficient engines, and the ability to land automatically in mist and fog ,” says Airbus COO Customers, John Leahy. “Add the widest and tallest cabins of any business jet, while being similar in size externally, and you can see why Airbus corporate jets are such great lifestyle-enablers,” he adds.
