Acropolis Aviation will be the launch customer for the ACJ320neo, due to enter service in early 2020. The new aircraft will have a range of 6,000 nautical miles, 1,033ft² of cabin space, capacity for 140 bags and an average cabin altitude of 6,400ft.
Acropolis is a charter company based in Farnborough, UK. It operates a 19-seat ACJ319. “Our ACJ319 with its 10-hour non-stop range is extremely popular in the high-end charter market, especially in the Middle East, USA and Europe,” said Jonathan Bousfield, CEO at Acropolis.
“With the new aircraft we will gain an improved range of 6,000 nautical miles, which means clients can fly from London to Los Angeles, Johannesburg or Tokyo direct, and London to Sydney with one refueling stop.”
The aircraft will accommodate up to 19 passengers in a VVIP configuration. “IFE and cabin connectivity is advancing at a rapid pace and we will ensure that our aircraft has the very latest technology, and is optimally configured for both work and leisure,” said Bousfield. “We look forward to keeping the charter community updated on developments as we progress toward service.”
The ACJ320neo will replace Acropolis’ ACJ319, which will become available for sale in late 2018.
