ACJ320neo Family enters production

Posted 23 May 2018 · Add Comment

Manufacture of the first ACJ320neo has begun, with elements taking shape across Europe and final assembly due to begin in June, followed by the first delivery of the 'green' aircraft to Acropolis Aviation of the UK in the last quarter of this year.



A second ACJ320neo will follow by year-end.

Deliveries of the first ACJ319neo, for K5 Aviation, will begin in the second quarter of 2019, marking a further step in the creation of the new corporate jet family. Orders for the ACJ320 Family now total nine aircraft, comprising three ACJ319neo and six ACJ320neo aircraft.

Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) is highlighting the ACJ320neo Family, which also includes the ACJ319neo, at the EBACE show[2], where it will be present with a stand shared with Airbus Corporate Helicopters (ACH). Two of today’s ACJ319s are also on display at EBACE.

“New engines and Sharklets enable the ACJ320neo Family to link even more of the world nonstop, in a large and comfortable cabin that is the envy of other business jet manufacturers,” said ACJ President Benoit Defforge.

The ACJ319neo can fly eight passengers 6,750 nm/12,500 km or 15 hours, while the ACJ320neo can transport 25 passengers 6,000 nm/11,100 km or 13 hours.

With wider and taller interiors than any other business jet, the ACJ320neo Family capitalises on the trend toward bigger cabins.

For customers wanting even more passenger capacity plus nonstop to the world range, Airbus offers a complete family of VIP widebodies, which includes the new ACJ330neo and ACJ350 XWB families.

More than 190 Airbus corporate jets are in service worldwide, flying on every continent, including Antarctica.
