General Aviation Airbus announces new ACJ319Neo order
Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) has announced a new A319Neo order from an unnamed Asian customer.
The order means that new and existing customers have now placed a total of nine orders – three ACJ319Neo and six ACJ320Neo - for the new ACJ320 family. Customers include Acropolis Aviation, Comlux, K5 Aviation and undisclosed clients.
“The ACJ320neo Family capitalizes on the trend toward larger cabins in top-of-the-line business jets, while giving customers even more intercontinental range and efficiency in what is already a popular and airline-reliable performer,” states Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers, John Leahy.
Deliveries of the ACJ320Neo begin at the end of 2018, while those of the ACJ319Neo start in the second quarter of 2019.
The ACJ319Neo is the corporate version of the A319Neo. The new business jet has a range of 12.500 kilometers with a configuration for 8 VIP’s. With a configuration for 25 passengers, the ACJ319Neo can fly up to 11.000 kilometers or 13 hours. All ACJ Neo versions are equipped with 2.4-metre-tall wingtip Sharklets to reduce fuel consumption.
