Space that takes your lifestyle to the world
Airbus is expanding its successful corporate jet series with two highly-capable new members: the ACJ319neo and ACJ320neo, both of which are based on the company’s best-selling single-aisle new engine option (NEO) family.
The ACJ319neo and ACJ320neo are available with two of the industry’s latest generation engine versions: CFM International’s LEAP-1A and the Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW1100G-JM, both of which offer further enhancements in comfort, flight distances and efficiency. These powerplants’ lower fuel burn provides additional range, along with lower levels of engine noise and emissions.
Riyadh-based Alpha Star is the ACJ319neo launch customer, with delivery of its first aircraft planned for 2019.
Both of the engine options have larger diameters than those of competing aircraft, whose 1960s origins limit the size of what will fit beneath its wing today. In addition, the ACJneo aircraft’s turbofan engines incorporate new technologies that include improved aerodynamic flows, advanced materials and higher pressure-ratios – all contributing to the reduced fuel consumption.
The incorporation of 2.4-metre-tall wingtip Sharklets on the ACJ319neo and ACJ320neo save fuel by reducing drag, while also improving takeoff and landing performance. These devices already are in widespread service on airliner versions of the A320 Family, and are flying on the ACJ320 Family as new-build and retrofit options as well.
Comfort and space
Contributing to enhanced passenger comfort on the ACJ319neo and ACJ320neo are their lower cabin altitude, equivalent to an average of less than 6,400 ft. – delivering an atmosphere that is even closer to that experienced on the ground. A lower cabin altitude makes the most sense on long flights, especially during the phase when an aircraft is at its highest cruising altitude.
The ACJ319neo is offered with up to five centre tanks (ACTs) in its cargo-hold for increased on-board fuel capacity, which matches the five ACTs that some of today’s ACJ319 operators currently utilise.
On the ACJ320neo, up to four ACTs are accommodated in its cargo-hold – two more than previously offered. The disposition of the ACTs in the cargo-hold also is improved, allowing up to 18.4m3/650ft3 of baggage to be carried when all four ACTs are fitted.
The ACJ319neo and ACJ320neo retain all of the advantages of Airbus’ ACJ320 Family corporate jetliners: the widest and tallest cabin of any business jet, the handling qualities and flight envelope protection that come with fly-by-wire controls, and advanced cockpits with Category 3B autoland and leading-edge avionics.
Further enhancing the passenger experience on the ACJ320neo Family is Airbus’ fresh cabin design – called Melody – that provides unrivalled freedom of movement on-board with greater space and comfort.
Inspired by the curves of nature, with an emphasis on providing a home-theatre quality sound environment, Melody combines the company’s long-standing experience and deep understanding of customer wishes with a forward-looking approach.
The cabin’s natural flow – inspired by hilly horizons, rolling rivers and other curves of nature – truly allows corporate jet customers to feel at home.
