Posted 22 May 2017 · Add Comment

Airbus Corporate Jets has launched a private jet version of its new A330neo, which combines new-generation engines and aerodynamic improvements to deliver added efficiency to its 'nonstop to the world' range.


 
Called the ACJ330neo, it will fly 25 passengers 9,400 nm/17,400 km or 20 hours, enough to fly nonstop from Europe to Australia.
 
Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers, John Leahy said: “For customers, such as countries needing to fly heads of state and delegations worldwide on government business, the ACJ330neo offers an unbeatable combination of modern design, proven capability and productivity, as well as being part of the world’s best-selling widebody family.”
 
Featuring a very spacious cabin the ACJ330neo readily accommodates conference/dining areas, a private office, bedroom, bathroom and guest seating and can be fully customised.
 
The A330 has evolved through innovation to fulfil freighter, multi-role tanker transport and corporate jet roles.
 
Recent A330 advances include new-generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, Sharklet wingtips and improved maximum take-off weights, delivering greater payload and range.
 
Other new features include the option of an onboard airport navigation system (OANS), similar to GPS in cars and a runway overrun prevention system (ROPS), for which insurance companies offer reduced premiums.
 
Like all Airbus aircraft, the ACJ330 features Category 3B autoland and other features as standard and, like all Airbus aircraft in production today, it has a common cockpit on which more than 100,000 pilots are already qualified and has optional dual head-up displays (HUDs).
 
Airbus supports more than 500 airline and corporate jet customers with a large support networks, including services tailored for business jets.
