Switzerland-headquartered Jet Aviation is to manage an ACJ319neo, powered by CFM International LEAP-1A engines, for an undisclosed West European private customer following its delivery by Airbus Corporate Jets from its final assembly line in Hamburg, Germany. The aircraft will be available for charter flights.
“This demonstrates the value of the ACJ319neo for the business aviation market,” says 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 per cent fuel saving and excellent economics combined with a robust 99.9 per cent operational reliability.”
The ACJ319neo joins more than 2,200 A320neo and A321neo aircraft already in service with airlines around the world. In 2019 the first green ACJ319neo successfully completed a 16hr 10min test flight, setting a new record for the longest A320 family flight by an Airbus crew.
