Airbus Corporate Jets introduced its new ACJ TwoTwenty executive aircraft, based on the A220-100, which includes a flexible cabin catalog and responds to the needs of the heavy and long-range business aircraft categories.
Airbus’ goal is to create a new market segment called “Xtra Large Bizjet” with extra large business aircraft, but occupying the same parking space and can operate in the same airports as the rest of the business jets.
Airbus assures that the ACJ will offer three times more cabin space and a third less than the operating costs of an executive airplane. In addition, it will produce 50% less noise and have a 25% more efficient consumption than the competition.
“The aircraft combines the intercontinental range, an incomparable personal space, and offers comfort for all passengers. This latest technology platform guarantees unbeatable economy and unmatched reliability. We see promising demand for this aircraft,” said Benoit Defforge, president of the ACJ program.
The YMCA will be available by 2023, will cost around $70 million dollars and will cover distances of up to 10,500 kilometers (about 12 hours of flight time). It will offer twice the connectivity of its competitors, a Wi-Fi system throughout the cabin and the latest innovations such as LED lighting and electrochromic windows.
