Chinese customer orders Airbus ACJ319

With the same basic cockpit layout and operating procedures as the A320 and A330/A340 Families, the A380 shares significant commonality with Airbus’ other fly-by-wire aircraft
Summary

Reinforces Airbus corporate jet presence in China

An Airbus ACJ319 with the fuel-saving Sharklet option has been ordered by a Chinese customer, in the first deal for this version from the country. The order builds on the strong Airbus corporate jet presence in greater China, where there are around 25 orders to date.
Airbus corporate jets such as the ACJ318 and ACJ319 are already in widespread service in China, with operators such as BAA Jet Management, Beijing Airlines, China Eastern Executive Aviation, Comlux Asia, Deer Jet, Hong Kong Jet and TAG Aviation.
“China is a relatively new market for corporate jets, as well as having one of the highest economic growth rates, making it a bright spot in today’s business jet market, especially at the top end where Airbus corporate jets serve with distinction,” points out Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers, John Leahy. “The Chinese business jet market also favours the ability to carry larger groups, for which Airbus corporate jets are especially well suited.”
Airbus’ ACJ318, ACJ319, ACJ320 and ACJ321 share a similar length and wingspan with competing large business jets, but have the widest and tallest cabin, delivering unequalled comfort, space and freedom of movement.
The wider cabin of Airbus corporate jets allows unique features such as a large circular table that converts to a square one, which is popular in cultures such as China’s because it allows the ideal arrangements for both socialising and playing games such as Mah Jong. 
Airbus corporate jets also come from a good family – the world’s most modern – which means that they deliver inherently good value, with many standard features that are lacking in other business jets. These include pilot and mechanic friendly common cockpits, fly by wire controls and centralised maintenance. Other features include a richer baseline specification, extensive use of weight-saving materials such as carbonfibre, and new range-extending engine options.
More than 490 Airbus customers and operators benefit for a worldwide network of technical support and training and support centres, which includes services tailored to corporate jet users, including staff based in China.
Airbus corporate jets now also has commercial offices in both Beijing and Hong Kong.
Airbus corporate jets have won more than 170 orders to date, from companies, individuals and governments, and are flying on every continent, including Antarctica.
