The very first ACJ320neo has been delivered to UK-based charter company Acropolis Aviation after a 13-month green completion at AMAC Aerospace’s headquarters in Basel, Switzerland.
The ACJ320neo was the first aircraft of this type delivered by Airbus Corporate Jets for VVIP configuration in early 2019. Acropolis Aviation is enhancing its bespoke aviation services with the addition of this VVIP aircraft. Building on the success of its existing ACJ319, the ACJ320neo will provide additional range via new high-efficiency engines and the addition of drag-reducing sharklets.
Acropolis Aviation, based at Farnborough Airport, selected design studio Alberto Pinto for the bespoke interior design. Materials including leather and wood veneers have been used to outfit the cabin. The aircraft features the latest technologies from Rockwell Collins, including HD CMS and IFE systems with AVOD streaming, a moving map and LED interior lighting.
“With great pleasure, we have executed this completion project with Acropolis Aviation,” said Bernd Schramm, group chief operating officer at AMAC Aerospace. “This unique mission adds to the excellent reputation that AMAC has gained in the market, which we continuously demonstrated over the last 20 VIP and more than 25 VVIP and refurbishment/modification projects at AMAC Aerospace.”
“The quality offered by AMAC Aerospace is second-to-none,” said Jonathan Bousfield, CEO of Acropolis Aviation. “We needed to select the right outfitter to bring our 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. We are extremely pleased to see the aircraft now returning to service and be at full disposal for our esteemed customers.”
