It says this will creating a whole new market segment, 'The Xtra Large Bizjet'. This offer includes for the first time a flexible cabin catalogue, addressing the requirements of the heavy and long-range business jet categories.

“We are proud to extend the ACJ product Family with the launch of the ACJ TwoTwenty. The aircraft combines intercontinental range, unmatched personal space and comfort for all passengers. This latest technology platform offers unbeatable economics and unrivalled reliability,” said Benoit Defforge, President ACJ. “Based on its compelling market appeal, we see promising demand for this aircraft in the growing business jet market.”

While occupying the same parking space and being able to take off from the same airports as competing business jets, the ACJ TwoTwenty will offer three times more cabin space, yet with a third less operating costs benefiting from the high performance of Airbus’ latest A220 Family.

The ACJ TwoTwenty is a clean-sheet design aircraft, based on Airbus’ A220-100, featuring advanced materials and state-of-the-art technologies. The cabin will offer a Wi-Fi system across all the cabin and latest innovations such as electro-chromatic windows and LED lighting.

The ACJ TwoTwenty will have an increased range enabling the aircraft to fly up to 5,650 nm/10,500 km (over 12 flight hours), directly connecting city pairs like London and Los Angeles, Moscow and Jakarta, Tokyo and Dubai as well as Beijing and Melbourne, benefitting the entire A220 Programme.



Comlux, with its ACJ-approved completion centre in Indianapolis and proven experience in outfitting and upgrading VIP interiors, has been selected as exclusive partner for the outfitting of the first 15 cabins to the latest addition of the ACJ programme. Leveraging Comlux’s long standing experience in business jet operations as well as cabin outfitting, its knowledgeable completion team is partnering with ACJ’s Head of Creative Design, Sylvain Mariat.

Featuring personal space with 73m²/785 ft² of floor space distributed over six wide VIP living areas, the ACJ TwoTwenty offers selected interior arrangements and handcrafted furnishing, with a cabin allowing for up to 18 passengers.
