Airbus offers world’s most modern corporate jet family
Delivers broadest spread of aircraft sizes and capabilities
Airbus offers the most modern and comprehensive corporate jet family in the world, giving customers the greatest choice of the world’s widest and most spacious cabins. Its corporate jets range from the Airbus ACJ318 all the way up to the double-deck ACJ380, allowing customers to select the comfort they want in the size that they need.
The family begins with the Airbus ACJ318, ACJ319, ACJ320 and ACJ321, which feature cabins that are the widest and tallest of any corporate jet – they are around twice as wide as traditional high-end business jets, while having a similar external length and wingspan.
This makes the Airbus ACJ318, ACJ319, ACJ320 and ACJ321 the new standard to which corporate jet customers aspire, whether as a first aircraft or when trading up from something smaller. It also means that customers for these aircraft benefit from unequalled comfort and space on every trip, as well as unrestricted freedom of movement on board.
Typically seating 19 to 50 passengers in settings that can be tailored to be as simple or elegant as the customer wishes, the Airbus ACJ318, ACJ319, ACJ320 and ACJ321 have the ability to carry more passengers than traditional business jets – as well as flying them in much greater comfort. This makes them ideal for carrying groups of employees, extended families and government delegations.
And because Airbus’ ACJ318, ACJ319, ACJ320 and ACJ321 have so much space to offer, passengers can be working in one part of the cabin without being disturbed by others that are socialising in another – unlike in traditional business jets – allowing everyone to make the best use of their time.
Airbus’ ACJ318, ACJ319, ACJ320 and ACJ321 all have intercontinental range, allowing them to fly nonstop on routes such as Beijing-Moscow, Jeddah-London or Paris-New York, as well as nonstop within continents, all in unprecedented comfort and space.
All three aircraft are directly derived from the modern, popular and successful A320 airliner family, more than 12,700 of which have been ordered to date. More than 400 customers and operators have chosen the A320 Family, which means that corporate jet customers will invariably be close to one, wherever in the world they choose to fly.
And because the Airbus ACJ318, ACJ319 and ACJ320 are derived from airliners designed to fly many times a day in the demanding conditions of airliner service, they feature robust airframes that achieve an excellent reliability of 99.9 per cent.
For corporate jet customers that want to carry even more passengers than the Airbus ACJ318, ACJ319, ACJ320 and ACJ321, Airbus offers a full family of VIP widebodies, derived from the rest of its modern airliner family. These widebodies comprise the Airbus ACJ330, ACJA340, ACJ350 and ACJ380.
In addition to carrying more passengers, these Airbus widebodies also offer “nonstop to the world” range, allowing company executives, high net-worth individuals and government leaders to save time by flying directly to their destination.
All Airbus corporate jets come from a modern Airbus airliner family heritage which, together with their large customer-base around the world, makes them excellent investments that hold their value well.
The modern designs of the Airbus ACJ Family mean that they come with more features as standard, including many that bring efficiency and cost-savings.
These features include streamlined, aerodynamically efficient designs, pilot-pleasing common cockpits, fly-by-wire controls that save weight and maintenance as well as introducing greater protection, weight-saving materials such as carbonfibre, and time and cost-saving centralised maintenance.
All Airbus aircraft also come with Category 3B autoland, which allows them to get their passengers where they are going, even when poor visibility means that other aircraft have to go elsewhere.
They also have richer specifications that deliver many features as standard, such as more navigational aids, fuel-saving wingtip fences, and weight-saving carbon brakes.
In addition to proven reliability in widespread airline service, Airbus corporate jet customers also benefit from a global network of technical advice, spare parts and training that serves thousands of aircraft and more than 500 customers and operators, as well as services tailored to the needs of business jet operators.
More than 180 Airbus corporate jets are in service today, comprising over 130 Airbus ACJ318s, ACJ319s, ACJ320s and ACJ321s, plus more than 50 VIP and government widebodies. Airbus corporate jets are flying on every continent, including Antarctica.
Airbus aircraft are assembled in China, France, Germany and the USA from elements built in countries throughout the world, bringing together the best that the world’s aerospace companies have to offer in industry-leading aircraft designs.
They remain the world’s most modern aircraft, setting new standards in passenger comfort and efficiency, as well as playing a leading role in bringing greater comfort to passengers.
