The first ACJ320neo successfully completed a two hour and 40 minute first flight from Hamburg on 16 November, getting its short test programme off to a good start.

  • Derived from the A320neo airliner family, some 500 of which are in airline service, the corporate jet version includes features such as extra fuel tanks in the cargo hold that will deliver even more intercontinental range, plus greater cabin pressure for better passenger comfort.
  • Continuous improvements mean that the ACJ320 Family now comprises the ACJ319neo, flying eight passengers 12,500 km or more than 15 hours, and the ACJ320neo, flying 25 passengers 11,100 km or more than 13 hours.
  • Both aircraft feature fuel-saving new-generation engines and Sharklets, and deliver more comfort and space than traditional business jets with similar operating costs.
