EBACE: Airbus Launches Private Jet, Corporate Helicopters


Airbus Corporate Jets is now offering a corporate-jet version of its A330neo widebody airliner, the company announced at the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition, being held this week in Geneva. The ACJ330neo can carry up to 25 passengers in a customized cabin, with plenty of room for conference/dining areas, a private office, bedrooms, bathrooms and guest seating. With a range of 9,400 NM, the jet can fly nonstop from Europe to Australia. The cockpit features Category 3B autoland and optional dual head-up displays. The company also announced the launch of Airbus Corporate Helicopters, a high-end, custom brand for the VIP private and business aviation market.

ACH will provide customers an “end-to-end exclusive ownership experience,” the company said, including advice to help choose the right aircraft and design the interior. All aircraft also will be kept in top condition by concierge-style service and support. The brand will be offered in three different product lines: the ACH Line, based on Airbus Corporate Helicopters’ in-house style concept, is “light and efficient,” the company said; ACH Exclusive provides a “truly exclusive environment” for those seeking refinement, luxury and comfort; and ACH Editions offers a portfolio of special collaborations and partnerships with luxury brands and designers, ranging from Hermes to Mercedes Benz to designer Peder Eidsgaard.
