ACJ reels in another neo order
Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) recently received an order for one of the corporate versions of its neo family of aircraft.
The ACJ319neo was ordered by an Asian customer that is, according to a company statement, trading up from a traditional business jet, “highlighting the market appeal of the aircraft family’s proven cabin and improved intercontinental range.”
This order brings the total of ACJ320 family members ordered so far this year to nine – three ACJ319neo and six ACJ320neo aircraft. Airbus has disclosed that Acropolis Aviation, Comlux and K5 Aviation are among those customers.

“The ACJ320neo family capitalizes on the trend toward larger cabins in top-of-the-line business jets, while giving customers even more intercontinental range and efficiency in what is already a popular and airline-reliable performer,” commented Airbus Customers COO John Leahy.
The ACJ319neo is able to fly eight passengers for a range of 6,750 nm; the ACJ320neo has the capacity to fly 25 passengers for 6,000 nm. Airbus Corporate Jets has also stated that more than 180 of its corporate airliners are in service at present, and on every continent.
Deliveries of the ACJ320neo begin at the end of this year, while those of the ACJ319neo start in Q2-2019.
