The first ACJ320neo to be delivered for VVIP operation will be outfitted by AMAC Aerospace at its facility in Basel, Switzerland. The launch customer, Acropolis Aviation, based at Farnborough Airport in the UK, selected Alberto Pinto to create the bespoke interior design in May 2016. The green aircraft is scheduled to arrive at AMAC in the fourth quarter of 2018 and to enter service in the fourth quarter of 2019.
“With great pleasure, we have signed this completion contract with Airbus Corporate Jet’s launch customer, Acropolis Aviation, as one of the world’s leading private aviation operators, in our 10th anniversary year,” said Bernd Schramm, group chief operating officer, AMAC Aerospace. “This new completion project is based on the excellent reputation that AMAC has gained in the market, which we continuously demonstrated over the last 19 VIP/ VVIP and refurbishment/modification projects.”
Acropolis Aviation selected AMAC Aerospace following a six-month tender process.
“The quality offered by AMAC is second-to-none,” said Jonathan Bousfield, CEO of Acropolis Aviation. “We needed to select the right outfitter to bring Alberto Pinto’s amazing vision to life, and from our point of view AMAC demonstrated to us they had the skill and creativity to do this better than anyone else.”
