World’s first Airbus ACJ320neo was accepted by Acropolis Acviation on today 16th January at Airbus‘s Toulouse, France HQ.  Powered by CFM LEAP-1A engines, the aircraft flies on to Basle, Switzerland where cabin outfitting will immediately commence by AMAC Aerospace. Its new Alberto Pinto cabin interior, which meets Acropolis‘s unique specification, will be installed over the coming months.

“This is an historic day for Acropolis Aviation, and we are very much looking forward to presenting the aircraft to our clients at the end of the year,”commented CEO Jonathan Bousfield.  

Airbus ACJ President Benoit Defforge added. “Delivery of the first ACJ320neo is the latest milestone in the roll-out of a completely new ACJ family, enabling even more of the comfort, range and value prized by business jet customers.”

Under the guidance of Alberto Pinto designer Yves Pickardt, who also styled Acropolis’s current ACJ319, the ACJ320neo will accommodate 19 passengers, and have a private master bedroom leading to a luxury en-suite with larger shower. The forward lounge and dining area have also been enlarged to deliver the highest levels of comfort, with the very latest technology and connectivity – optimised for work and leisure.

“Our new aircraft will be an evolution of our highly popular cabin in G-NOAH, retaining the traditional and comfortable style, and will continue to optimise the use of space to ensure the cabin is the market leader. The versatile accommodation isdesigned to appeal to our diverse range of travellers, from heads of state to private individuals flying on business and on leisure,” added Jonathan Bousfield.
