All New Airbus ACJ 220 – the supreme Business Jet
Take a look inside the $81 million ACJ TwoTwenty that will be roaming the skies within the next three years.
The Airbus Corporate Jet 220, also called the “TwoTwenty,” is the private jet version of the popular A220 airliner. A step above the likes of Gulfstream, Bombardier, and Dassault, Airbus said the driving force behind the project was that private flyers were seeking larger aircraft, hence the manufacturer’s new designation: “the xtra large biz jet.”
Airbus teamed up with private jet operator and aircraft interior completion firm Comlux to come up with the first luxurious design, incorporating recent innovations in cabin technology to create a truly ultra-modern private jet. Space wasn’t an issue as the airliner-sized cabin allows for massive living areas and even includes a shower and king-size bed.
As one of the newest aircraft in the skies, its buyers can enjoy the cost savings that come with an aircraft as advanced as the A220. Fuel consumption, for example, is reduced by 25% on the ACJ220 compared to previous-generation airliners thanks to new engines and other aerodynamic features.
Airbus’ gamble is already paying off as six orders have been placed for the jets. Comlux has the first two orders while an undisclosed buyer has the next four.
