Airbus Corporate Jets showcased an A350XWB at Geneva during EBACE 2016.
The ACJ A350XWB was brought to EBACE to show selected visitors, with the cabin featuring a gallery of interior inside the aircraft following appointment of Jet Aviation Basel to model a VIP interior.
The design team at Jet Aviation Basel Design Studio developed the VIP cabin interior with renderings produced by ACA Advanced Computer Art GmbH for display onboard the aircraft.
Additional renderings presented alongside a 3D printed model of the cabin were also available to view during EBACE.
The design features a large lounge and dining area which is segmented into different areas for eating, relaxing and socializing. Additionally a spacious private suite which includes a master bedroom, bathroom and private lobby and a spacious walk-in shower in the bathroom; induction chargers are imagined within the bedroom nightstand; and electro chromatic shade systems transform the living space from private to open plan at a touch of a button.
The collaboration is the latest in a long history of partnership between Airbus Corporate Jets and Jet Aviation, and reflects the Completions Center’s competence in technological innovation.
“We selected the Basel Completions Center to render an A350 cabin interior for the EBACE convention based on their demonstrated capabilities to execute an interior fit-out on wide-body and composite aircraft,” says Airbus Corporate Jets Managing Director Benoit Defforge.
Neil Boyle, senior vice president & general manager, states, “This appointment recognizes Jet Aviation Basel as one of the leading centers for wide-body aircraft completions, particularly for new generation composite aircraft. We are proud to continue our long standing relationship with Airbus to help the Airbus A350 become a most appealing wide-body VIP interior solution.”
Jet Aviation Basel has successfully delivered 19 VIP Airbus cabins since 2000, from ACJ319 to the ACJ340-600, and the ACJ350XWB would mark the companies next generation completions in Airbus aircraft.
