ACJ319 goes on show in Shanghai

More exposure for business aircraft developments at Airbus is being unveiled this week by the company’s corporate jet division ACJ with the first public showing of the ACJ319.

The event, which Airbus says is “to demonstrate the benefits of the best business jet cabin in the sky”, will be at the Asian Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (ABACE), which opens in Shanghai tomorrow, 16 April, and lasts until Thursday.

The aircraft going on show is operated by EVA Airways and available for VVIP charter. It features a stylish Hermès-designed cabin, two lounges, a conference or dining area, an office/bedroom with bathroom and is certificated for 19 passengers.

ACJ president Benoit Defforge said: “Business jets are about a great travel experience as well as getting somewhere, and ours deliver the widest and tallest cabin in an aircraft family that is modern, able to welcome groups, and economical.”

The new family comprises an ACJ319neo2 that can fly eight passengers 15hr or 6,750nm/12,500km, and an ACJ320neo that can transport 25 passengers 13hr or 6,000nm/11,100km. ACJ has 13 orders and commitments for neo family aircraft.
