Launching two new aircraft, the ACJ319neo and ACJ320neo, gives Airbus the ability to offer customers a corporate jet solution with more comfort, range and efficiency. They build on the widest and tallest cabin that is already the cornerstone of the family’s success around the world.

Both aircraft capitalise on new engines now being developed for the modern A320 airliner family, as well as Sharklets and improvements in cabin comfort and fuel capacity.

The more modern design of the A320 Family, which was conceived in the 1980s and has been continuously improved, enables it to better incorporate new technologies than older designs.

As a result, the ACJ319neo will fly 8 passengers 6,750nm/12,500 km, and the ACJ320neo 25 passengers 6,000nm/11,100 km, bringing even more city-pairs within nonstop range.

Airbus pioneered the use of new engines and Sharklets, which, in addition to increasing range, deliver a 16 per cent improvement in fuel efficiency on the ACJ320neo, compared with today’s ACJ320ceo. Sharklets also reduce noise and emissions.

Airbus has already won around 3,800 orders for the A320neo Family which, together with today’s A320 Family, has now booked an impressive 11,600-plus orders.

Flight trials of the A320neo are already under way, with deliveries to airlines due to begin towards the end of this year, so the future is already flying.

Airbus offers CFM International LEAP-1A or Pratt & Whitney’s PW1100G engines on the ACJneo Family. Both have larger diameters than those on the competing aircraft, whose 1960s origins, when engines had small diameters, limits the size of what will fit beneath its wing today.

In addition to their larger diameter, higher bypass-ratio advantage, the new turbofan engines on the ACJneo family feature other new technology. This includes improved aerodynamic flows, advanced materials and higher pressure-ratios, which further reduce fuel consumption.

Sharklets are standard fit on the ACJneo Family, improving appearance as well as extending range, reducing fuel-burn, and improving performance.

Airbus’ ACJneo Family will feature a lower cabin altitude (LCA), equivalent to an average of less than 6,400ft, delivering an atmosphere that is even closer to that experienced on the ground.

The Airbus ACJ319neo is offered with up to five ACTs in its cargo-hold, allowing space for baggage underfloor – as well as on board. This matches the five ACTs that some of today’s ACJ319 operators
