An undisclosed West European private customer has taken delivery of an ACJ319neo, delivered by Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) from the final assembly line in Hamburg, Germany.
The aircraft will be managed by Jet Aviation and will be available for charter flights. It is powered by CFM International LEAP-1A engines.
“This demonstrates the value of the ACJ319neo for the business aviation market!” said ACJ president, Benoit Defforge. “The aircraft’s latest technology engines and Sharklets enable even longer intercontinental flights in the widest single-aisle cabin in the sky, while delivering at least 20% fuel savings and excellent economics combined with a robust 99.9% operational reliability.”
The ACJ319neo joins more than 2,200 A320neo and A321neo aircraft already in service with airlines around the world. Airbus supports more than 500 customers and operators through a worldwide network of field service, spares and training centres, complemented by services tailored to the needs of private jet operators.
In 2019 the first green ACJ319neo successfully completed a test flight lasting 16 hours and 10 minutes, setting a new record for the longest A320 family flight by an Airbus crew.
