Airbus is showing an ACJ319 operated by Acropolis Aviation of the UK at Abu Dhabi Air Expo , in what is the first display of this particular aircraft in the Middle East.
The aircraft, which is offered for VVIP charters and seats up to 19 passengers in unequalled comfort and space, features an attractive cabin with lounges, a conference/dining area and a bedroom with ensuite bathroom.
It was completed by Airbus’ cabin-outfitting subsidiary, the Airbus Corporate Jet Centre (ACJC).
“In business aviation it’s what you get inside that counts, and you can count on getting more of that in an Airbus corporate jet, because we deliver the widest and tallest cabin of any business jet”, comments Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers, John Leahy. “And we do it while fitting into the same ramp space as traditional business jets,” he adds.
Airbus corporate jets are derived from the world’s most modern aircraft family, making them inherently better at delivering the features that customers want today - as well as good investments with the best potential for continuing evolution.
They come with the fuel-capacity for intercontinental range, enhanced performance, and extras such as built-in airstairs for airport autonomy.
The Middle East is an important market for Airbus – it is where the company sold its first corporate jets – and is home to most of the widebody private jets in the world.
Today, more than 170 Airbus corporate jets have been bought by customers around the world, and they are flying on every continent, including Antarctica.
