Airbus Corporate Jets launches ACJ TwoTwenty business jet
Written by Ivo Gračanin.
Airbus Corporate Jets has launched the ACJ TwoTwenty business jet, creating a whole new market segment “The Xtra Large Bizjet. ” While occupying the same parking space and being able to take off from the same airports as competing business jets, the ACJ TwoTwenty will offer three times more cabin space.
The ACJ TwoTwenty is a clean-sheet design aircraft, based on Airbus’ A220-100.
The ACJ TwoTwenty will have an increased range enabling the aircraft to fly up to 5,650 nm/10,500 km (over 12 flight hours), directly connecting city pairs like London and Los Angeles, Moscow and Jakarta, Tokyo and Dubai as well as Beijing and Melbourne. Featuring unmatched personal space with 73m²/785 ft² of floor space distributed over six wide VIP living areas, the ACJ TwoTwenty offers selected interior arrangements and handcrafted furnishing.
The cabin will allow up to 18 passengers.
Comlux, with its ACJ-approved completion center in Indianapolis, has been selected as exclusive partner for the outfitting of the first 15 cabins to the latest addition of the ACJ programme.
Airbus Corporate Jets has won its first orders for the ACJ TwoTwenty totalling six aircraft following its launch. While Comlux has revealed an order for two aircraft, four further jets were ordered by undisclosed customers.
Entry into service of the first ACJ TwoTwenty by Comlux Aviation is targeted for early 2023.
