Aircraft is part of world’s most modern corporate jet family
Airbus’ ACJ318 will be the highlight of LABACE* in Sao Paulo later this month, showcasing a wider and taller cabin than any other business jet, in what is the largest market for them in Latin America.
The Airbus ACJ318 on display is offered for VVIP charter by Globaljet of Switzerland, and fits into the same ramp space as other large business jets. It carries up to 19 passengers, features a private office that converts to a bedroom, and has club seating in several spacious lounge areas.
“When it comes to business jets, it’s what you offer in the cabin that counts and, with the world’s broadest and most modern aircraft family, Airbus can offer everything from 19 seaters with intercontinental range, to VIP widebodies capable of flying government delegations nonstop to most of the world,” comments Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers, John Leahy.
Airbus has sold some 170 corporate jets to date, and its aircraft are the only ones flying on every continent, including Antarctica, highlighting their versatility. Its customers comprise companies, individuals and governments, in roughly equal measure.
All of Airbus’ corporate jet customers are united in their need for rapid and reliable transport, whether in running a multinational business or leading a country, and their ability to serve as business tools is both proven and widespread in many different markets.
In offering corporate jet versions of all of its modern aircraft family, Airbus gives customers the ability to carry more people than traditional business jets, which are limited in size, as well as giving them greater comfort and workspace in which to travel.
Like all Airbus corporate jets, the Airbus ACJ318 features intercontinental range, allowing it to serve most destinations in North and South America nonstop – as well as to reach much of the world with a single stop.
