Airbus is exhibiting an ACJ319 at the ABACE show , where it will exemplify the larger and more modern corporate jets preferred by Chinese customers.

The ACJ319 on display features conference, dining and lounge areas at the front, plus two separate rooms at the rear. It is offered for VVIP charter by Comlux The Aviation Group, and is certificated to transport 19 passengers – more than traditional business jets – allowing it to serve a wider range of business needs.

“Airbus corporate jets can fly bigger groups than large traditional bizjets, while also delivering intercontinental range and similar operating costs, and Chinese customers appreciate that capability,” declares Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers, John Leahy. “The modernity and reliability of Airbus corporate jets’ airliner heritage is also highly valued in Asia,” he adds.

Airbus began delivering ACJ320 Family corporate jets to China in 2005. Today, around 20 Airbus corporate jets are flying in China , giving them the strongest presence in the country of any business jet at the top-end of the market.

Airbus’ corporate jets are derived from the world’s most modern airliner family, delivering benefits lacking in older designs – such as fly-by-wire controls that provide enhanced ergonomics and practical protection - now an expected feature of new-generation business jets.

Airbus corporate jets’ modern designs also means they can take full benefit of today’s larger and more efficient engines – as exemplified  by the new Airbus ACJneo Family - unlike older designs and those with fuselage-mounted engines.

A worldwide network of technical advice, spares and training that serves more than 500 customers and operators worldwide supports Airbus corporate jet customers, which also benefit from services dedicated to their particular needs.

Other standard Airbus features include Category 3B autoland that enables flights in foggy conditions, an intrinsically modern design that holds its value better than older designs, and time and cost-saving centralised maintenance.

More than 180 corporate jets are in service today, and they are flying on every continent, including Antarctica, highlighting their versatility.
