ACJ Introduces ‘Xtra Large Bizjet’

Airbus Corporate Jets has introduced the ACJ TwoTwenty, a corporate version of its A220 airliner. The new ACJ will be delivered outfitted from a wide choice of predefined luxury cabin configurations and is slated to enter service in early 2023.

“This will open a new market segment, offering an alternative to the traditional large-cabin business jet and the bizliner,” Benoit Defforge, president of Toulouse-based Airbus Corporate Jets told BJT. The TwoTwenty boasts three times more cabin space and one-third the operating cost, yet is priced “just under a traditional long-range business jet,” he said.

Acting as launch customer and production partner, Switzerland’s Comlux Group is taking the first two of the “Xtra Large Bizjets,” as ACJ calls them, and the group’s Indianapolis, Indiana facility, Comlux Completion, will outfit the first 15 cabins. Four additional ACJ220 orders from undisclosed customers are also in hand.

“It’s a unique product in business aviation,” said Richard Gaona, executive chairman and CEO of the corporate airliner services group, which will make its ACJ TwoTwentys available for charter and sales.

With a significant range increase to 5,650 nm and ETOPS certification in hand, the ACJ TwoTwenty will be capable of linking London and Los Angeles. Additionally, it has a 6,000-foot cabin altitude and can be equipped with the latest in communication and cabin furnishings for comfort on 12-hour flights, Airbus said.
