Airbus Corporate Jets has announced that it is continuing to increase its presence in the U.S.
The aircraft manufacturer says it will be expanding its team, visibility and sales and marketing efforts throughout the country. More than 210 Airbus corporate jets are currently in service worldwide, flying on every continent.
There is a need for some 1,200 business jets in the U.S. either to be replaced or cater for growth, including around 100 bizliners and 1,100 bizjets. “The goal for ACJ is to penetrate the U.S. market with its latest new-generation corporate jet aircraft, the ACJ TwoTwenty, which was launched at the end of 2020,” said Sean McGeough, VP Commercial ACJ for North America.
“We strongly believe that the ACJ TwoTwenty is a game changer as it is a new value proposition to business aviation buyers. The innovative solution combines intercontinental range and up to three times more personal space, thus providing more comfort for each passenger and at a similar price tag as ULR bizjets but with a much lower operating cost.”
In addition, Comlux Completion in Indianapolis is extending its capabilities within the ACJ Service Center Network and is becoming an approved Service Center MRO for the ACJ TwoTwenty. Its capabilities include all maintenance-related activities, cabin refurbishing and cabin/system upgrades.
