The Airbus’ ACJ319 being exhibited at Jet Expo has a wider and taller cabin than any other business jet, giving potential customers the ability to take an office and apartment with them when they fly – as well as more of their colleagues, family and friends.
It is operated by MJet, offered for VVIP charter, and seats 19 passengers in a cabin with that includes lounge areas plus a bedroom with ensuite bathroom. This is the first time that Airbus has exhibited the MJet Airbus ACJ319 at a show.
“Business jets are a powerful enabler, especially in uncertain times, and Airbus corporate jets are the top of the productivity pyramid, with the ability to carry more people, more profitably and more efficiently,” reflects Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers, John Leahy. “Airbus corporate jets are also the natural next step in the trend towards larger cabins, delivering more height, width and freedom of movement than any other business jet,” he adds.
Airbus’ ACJ320 Family, comprising the ACJ318, ACJ319, ACJ320 and ACJ321, are unique in allowing customers to take more cabin into the sky, while fitting into similar ramp space.
Airbus has long offered fully customisable cabins in its corporate jets, and is now also offering a new version, the ACJ319 Elegance, which offers a modular approach that delivers simplicity, speed and savings, while preserving the element of choice.
Derived from the world’s most modern aircraft family, Airbus corporate jets feature, as standard, many innovations that other business jets lack or only offer as options, such as the simplicity and better handling of fly-by-wire controls, extensive use of weight-saving carbonfibre, and time and cost-saving centralised maintenance.
This heritage of Airbus corporate jets means that they benefit from excellent reliability, because airliners are designed to perform many flights a day in rigorous conditions. Airbus corporate jet operators are also backed by a worldwide support network that serves more than 500 customers and operators, as well as services tailored to their needs.
Airbus has sold over 170 corporate jets to date, and these aircraft are flying on every continent, highlighting their versatility.
