K5 Aviation GmbH of Germany has firmed up a previously announced commitment for an Airbus ACJ319neo, adding to the growing number of orders for the world’s newest private jet family, which includes the ACJ320neo launched in 2015.

The ACJ319neo will be operated by K5 Aviation, which will be the first to fly the new type. K5 Aviation already manages three ACJ319s that are offered for VVIP charter exclusively through Vertis Aviation. 28 East, jointly owned by K5 and Vertis Aviation, managed the aircraft acquisition.

Delivery of the “green” aircraft is planned for the second quarter of 2019. Engines and cabin outfitter have yet to be selected.

“Today’s Airbus ACJ319 is popular with VVIP charters organised by Vertis Aviation and operated by K5 Aviation, and we look forward to even more success with the ACJ319neo,” says 28 East Partner Luca Madone.

“Comfort, space and freedom of movement are especially important to customers at the top-end of the market, which is what we deliver with the Airbus ACJ319, and the neo version will allow us to do this on even longer flights,” says K5 Aviation CEO Erik Scheidt.

“Airbus corporate jet customers can now sign up to give even more wings to their lifestyles with the ACJneo Family, and it’s great to see many of our existing customers and operators doing exactly that,” adds Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers John Leahy.

Airbus’ ACJneo Family combines new fuel-saving engines, wingtip-mounted Sharklets and other improvements to give customers and operators better fuel efficiency and greater range, including giving the ACJ319neo a flying time of 15 hours.

Airbus’ ACJneo Family is the only top-of-the-line corporate jet offering to deliver industry standard features, such as the increased protection offered by fly-by-wire controls, Category 3B automatic landing, and options such as runway overrun prevention and onboard airport navigation systems (ROPS and OANS).

More than 170 Airbus corporate jets are flying on every continent, including Antarctica.
