Asian customer orders Airbus A320 Prestige

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

A private Asian customer has placed a firm order for an Airbus A320 Prestige, becoming the first to order the type in the region.

Based on the modern A320 airliner, but featuring a customized cabin, extra fuel-tanks for intercontinental range, and a host of other features, the Airbus A320 Prestige has the largest cabin in its class, making it the new top-of-the-line in business jets.

Airbus’ ACJ Family, which comprises the A318 Elite, Airbus ACJ and A320 Prestige, represents the new standard in space and comfort for customers wanting to trade up to something better than traditional business jets.

Airbus A320 Prestige customers have the freedom to outfit their cabin to suit their individual tastes and, with more than 96 m2/1,030 ft2 of floor-space at their disposal, are well placed to extend into the air the comfort and space that they already enjoy in their accommodation on the ground.

The size of the Airbus A320 Prestige’s cabin also means that it is able to carry larger groups, corporate colleagues, families and government delegations than traditional business jets.

In addition to the comfort, space and ease-of-movement around the cabin that the Airbus ACJ Family brings, it also delivers all the benefits that come from a really modern transport aircraft, such as industry standard fly-by-wire controls, time and cost-saving centralized maintenance, and unmatched use of weight-saving materials such as carbon fibre.

Total sales of the Airbus ACJ Family now stand at more than 100 which, together with the 50 or so VIP and government wide-bodies also in service, make up an increasingly popular part of the modern Airbus product line.
