The Easystart initiative of Airbus Corporate Jets offers tailored support to the buyers of its corporate jets that already have been in service.
Easystart helps buyers to understand how an Airbus corporate jet can perform on their key missions, how it can be an attractively affordable upgrade, and how services – such as training, support and upgrades – are available to ensure a smooth entry into service.
Airbus began delivering A320 Family-based corporate jets in the 1990s. With new models such as the ACJ320neo now on the horizon, more owners are interested in trading up. This opens opportunities for the acquisition of aircraft becoming available from their first operators.
Airbus airliners are designed for 20 years or more in service, while flying several thousand hours a year. They have potentially much longer lives as corporate jets, which typically only fly a few hundred hours a year, helping to ensure excellent residual value.
Pre-owned Airbus corporate jets thus have much to offer and – because they are the most modern aircraft family in their class – longevity is “in their genes,” with significant potential for new operators.
With Easystart, Airbus offers its unmatched advice, care and support beyond the first ownership.
Key ACJ320 Family features include a much wider and taller cabin than any other business jet, while being similar in size externally. This delivers more sociable, comfortable and productive travel, because passengers can easily move around – as well as allowing more passengers.
Airbus corporate jets already include many features that customers expect when buying a business jet today, including the enhanced protection of fly-by-wire controls, weight-saving new materials, and cost-saving centralised maintenance – features often lacking in competitors.
More than 180 Airbus corporate jets are in service on every continent, including Antarctica. They are supported by a worldwide network of technical advice, spares and training that is sized for the needs of more than 500 customers and operators, including services dedicated to the particular needs of corporate jet fliers.
