11 August 2011 Press Release

Airbus will exhibit the world’s widest and tallest corporate jet cabin at LABACE* in Sao Paulo next month, allowing vistors to experience the new top-end in bizjet comfort and space for themselves.

It will display an Airbus ACJ318, offered for VVIP charter by Comlux, which features the comfort and practicality of home and office and seating for 19 passengers. It is the first time that Airbus exhibits a corporate jet at LABACE, and the first time that the ACJ318 has been displayed in Brazil.

“Customers want to take into the air the comfort, space and practicality of their home and office and, with the widest and tallest cabin of any business jet, existing or planned, Airbus corporate jets allow them to do so in style – without occupying a lot more airport space,” says Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers, John Leahy.

Airbus offers the largest family of corporate jets of any manufacturer, all of them derived from its modern airliner family and ranging from the Airbus ACJ318 all the way up to the ACJ380.

The Airbus ACJ318 that will be displayed during LABACE features a cabin that is around twice as wide as traditional business jets and a floorspace of around 75 m2/800 ft2, which makes it similar in size to a reasonable size house or apartment.

It features a living area and an office that converts to a bedroom, plus two bathrooms, allowing it to give passengers travel that is comfortable and practical, as well as productive and relaxing.

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.

Airbus has sold more than 170 of its corporate jets to date, with the aircraft flying on every continent, including Antarctica. Its customers include companies, individuals and governments.
