Cabin completion of new aircraft next step
Acropolis Aviation of the UK has taken delivery of the first ACJ320neo, which features new-generation engines and Sharklets to deliver a leap forward in range and economy.
The aircraft will now undergo cabin-outfitting by AMAC in Basle, Switzerland, receiving a VVIP cabin designed by Alberto Pinto. Its current ACJ livery will also be replaced by Acropolis Aviation colours.
“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,” says ACJ President Benoit Defforge.
The A320neo Family is widely proven with airlines, which already fly more than 600 of them.
Corporate jet customers are now poised to benefit from this airliner heritage, enhanced by specific features – such as extra fuel tanks in the cargo hold that contribute even more intercontinental range, an improved cabin atmosphere, a higher maximum take-off weight and cruise altitude, and airstairs.
The ACJ320 Family currently comprises the ACJ319neo, capable of flying eight passengers 6,750 nm/12,500 km or more than 15 hours, and the ACJ320neo, which can fly 25 passengers 6,000 nm/11,100 km or more than 13 hours.
Deliveries of the ACJ320neo’s sibling, the ACJ319neo, will begin in the coming months.
In addition to the their new fuel-saving engines and Sharklets, ACJ320neo Family aircraft have the widest and tallest cabins of any business jet, without costing more to operate or taking up more ramp space.
The ACJ Family includes a complete family of VIP widebodies that can carry even more passengers nonstop around the world – including the new ACJ330neo and ACJ350 XWB.
More than 190 ACJs are in service around the world, around the clock.
