Acropolis Aviation UK has taken delivery of the first Airbus ACJ 320neo, featuring new-generation engines and Sharklets.
The aircraft will undergo cabin-outfitting by AMAC in Switzerland, receiving a VVIP cabin designed by Alberto Pinto. Its ACJ livery will also be replaced by Acropolis Aviation colours. In addition to new fuel-saving engines and Sharklets, ACJ 320neo Family aircraft have the widest and tallest cabins of any business jet, without costing more to operate or taking up more ramp-space.
Benoit Defforge, President at ACJ, said: “Delivery of the first ACJ 320neo 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.”
Special features include 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 air-stairs.
The ACJ320 family currently comprises the ACJ 319neo, capable of flying eight passengers 6,750 nm/12,500 km or more than 15 hours, and the ACJ 320neo, which can fly 25 passengers 6,000 nm/11,100 km or more than 13 hours. They are widely proven with airlines, which already fly more than 600 of them,
Deliveries of the ACJ 320neo’s sibling, the ACJ 319neo, will begin in the coming months.
