Airbus' new corporate jet debuts in Toulouse


Toulouse - Airbus has completed the assembly of its first ACJ320neo, corporate version of its re-engineered single-aisle jet.

On August 16, the European manufacturer published an image of its first ACJ320neo, covered with the Airbus Corporate Jet livery and equipped with CFM International LEAP-1A engines. The first flight of the jet is expected in the coming weeks.

The first device will be delivered to Acropolis Aviation, a British luxury charter operator based at Farnborough Airport - London, in the last quarter of this year. After the delivery, it will go directly to AMAC Aerospace in Basel, Switzerland, where the new cabin will be installed and repainted with the operator's colors.

ACJ320neo comes with next-generation engines and sharklets, saving about 15% fuel. The new corporate jet can carry up to 25 passengers on a route of 6000 nm (11.100 km), or a flight of thirteen hours, allowing connections such as London - Beijing or Cape Town and Moscow - Los Angeles.

Equipped with the largest and tallest cabin ever amongst the all major business jets, the ACJ320neo has similar operating costs and leaves less carbon footprint.

To date, Airbus ACJ320neo received nine orders from the customers worldwide.
