Airbus Corporate Jets has launched the ACJ TwoTwenty business jet, dubbing it The Xtra Large Bizjet that includes for the first time a flexible cabin catalogue, addressing the requirements of the heavy and long-range business jet categories.
While occupying the same parking space and being able to take off from the same airports as competing business jets, the ACJ TwoTwenty will offer 3x more cabin space, yet with a third less operating costs benefiting from the high performance of Airbus’ latest A220 family.
The ACJ TwoTwenty is based on Airbus’ A220-100, featuring advanced materials and state-of-the-art technologies. The cabin will offer 2x better connectivity than its competitors, a Wi-Fi system across all the cabin, and latest innovations such as electro-chromatic windows and LED lighting.
The ACJ TwoTwenty will have an increased range enabling the aircraft to fly up to 5,650nm/10,500km (over 12 flight hours), directly connecting city pairs such as London and Los Angeles, Moscow and Jakarta, Tokyo and Dubai, as well as Beijing and Melbourne.
Comlux, with its ACJ-approved completion center in Indianapolis, Indiana, and proven experience in outfitting and upgrading VIP interiors, has been selected as exclusive partner for the outfitting of the first 15 cabins to the latest addition of the ACJ program. Leveraging Comlux’s long standing experience in business jet operations as well as cabin outfitting, its knowledgeable completion team is partnering with ACJ’s Head of Creative Design, Sylvain Mariat. He is recognized for having created the most innovative flying experiences.
Featuring unmatched personal space with 785ft² (73m²) of floor space distributed over six wide VIP living areas, the ACJ TwoTwenty offers selected interior arrangements and handcrafted furnishing. The cabin will allow up to 18 passengers to work, share, dine and relax at their discretion thanks to its cabin versatility and options suiting their needs and taste - all this under the tagline “Reimagine your place in the sky…”
Airbus Corporate Jets is putting all its knowledge in terms of cabin design into this new aircraft, supported by the experience of having delivered already around 90 cabin turnkey solutions across several decades to the most demanding clients all around the world.
The company has won its first orders for six ACJ TwoTwenty aircraft following its launch. While Comlux has revealed an order for two aircraft, four further jets were ordered by undisclosed customers.
Entry into service of the first ACJ TwoTwenty by Comlux Aviation is targeted for early 2023.
The ACJ TwoTwenty VIP cabin interior will feature business and guest lounges, a private entertainment space, and a private suite with bathroom. The cabin will be equipped with large full lie flat seats, a US-king size bed, a standing rainshower, a humidifying system for well-being on board, and leading-edge connectivity.
