Airbus Corporate Jets has launched a corporate jet version of its A330neo airliner, which combines new-generation engines and aerodynamic plus other improvements that it says will deliver efficiency, comfort and very long range.
Called the ACJ330neo, it will fly 25 passengers 9,400nm (17,400km) or some 20 hours, enough to fly nonstop from Europe to Australia. It features a spacious cabin that can accommodate conference/dining areas, a private office, bedroom, bathroom, guest seating, and can be fully customised to suit customer needs.
Recent A330 advances include new-generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, Sharklet wingtips and improved maximum take-off weights, delivering better payload and range. Other new features include the option of an on-board airport navigation system (OANS), similar to satellite navigation systems (GPS) in cars, and a runway overrun prevention system (ROPS).
