Description of ACJ 220

On October 6 2020, Airbus announced the construction of a new business aircraft. Within their Canadian subsidiary, Airbus Corporate Jet, Airbus is developing the ACJ 220. This business jet is intended to create a whole new segment within the Private Jet market. The Xtra Large Biz Jet range. The ACJ TWO TWENTY, is an aircraft designed for businessmen travelling around the globe. It is therefore a long range aircraft, with the only difference being that it is much larger than the other private jets already on the market. The ACJ TWO TWENTY, is a business jet version of the A220 airliner and is powered by two Pratt & Whitney PW1500G engines.

Size and comfort

Up to 6 VIP areas can be fitted on board this aircraft. This is a first for a long-haul business jet. Its cabin covers a total area of 73m2. By way of comparison, Bombardier’s Global 7500, a direct competitor on long-haul business jets, has 41m2. Initially, the first 15 cabins of the new aircraft will be designed by Comlux, also a partner in the project. This is a Swiss airline company. Comlux has a cabin design department in Indianapolis. This is a godsend for the aircraft manufacturer, which builds its new aircraft in Canada.

The 6 VIP areas will all be 12m2 each. It will be possible to personalise them in order to obtain a tailor-made business jet that meets your needs in every respect. The aircraft can accommodate on board no less than 18 passengers, who can eat, work or sleep on board the aircraft. The manufacturer announces a “business jet two to three times larger than its direct competitors”.

 

Technical performance and technology on board the aircraft

The ACJ TWOTWENTY, has a radius of action of 10,500 km. These performances allow it to link Dubai and Tokyo or London and Los Angeles. By way of comparison, Gulfstream’s G700 has a range of 13,000 km. Thus, although it is not the aircraft with the longest range, the ACJ 220 remains the largest aircraft in its category. Despite its size, Airbus guarantees that their new business jet will be able to land at the same airports as its competitors. That is to say, runways of 1900 metres. Thus the ACJ 220 will be able to land at airports such as St Moritz, Teterboro, London city or Seletar. Airbus also tells us that the cockpit of the latest ACJ has twice as much avionics as that offered by the competition.

On board the aircraft, the cabin has high speed wifi. This will enable anyone travelling on board this aircraft to work with optimum efficiency. It will also be equipped with LED lighting and electro-chromatic windows. These windows can become opaque and thus filter the light from the outside. This is an asset for the comfort of long-haul flights that are subject to time differences. In order to make the flight more comfortable, the aircraft is equipped with a humidity control system. But it will also be equipped with a High Efficiency air filter to ensure optimal air quality.

 

Optimised consumption

The ACJ TWO TWENTY was built with the perspective of being a more economical aircraft than the competition. Indeed, it would be 1/3 less expensive than other long haul private jets. In addition, fuel consumption was also optimised. The ACJ 220 would consume 25% less paraffin than an aircraft of this size would have to spend. Finally, the aircraft will have a 50% reduced noise footprint compared to previous ACJ models.

 

Price and release date

Airbus has announced that the first deliveries of aircraft will arrive by 2023. The business jet will be available at a price of 70 million euros. The G700 and the Global 7500 are available for €75 million and €73 million respectively. So in addition to being larger, the ACJ TWO TWENTY would also be cheaper than its competitors.

Key Benefits of ACJ 220

  • Most spacious cabin of 73 m2
  • Economical device in relation to its size
  • 6 VIP areas including offices, bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms among others
  • Can comfortably accommodate 18 passengers
  • Access to many airports despite its large size

Commercial features of ACJ 220

The ACJ TWO TWENTY presents itself as, the ideal aircraft for business trips of intercontinental groups. With 6 pieces that can be customised and a high-speed WIFI connection, it is possible to work on board the latest ACJ with tremendous efficiency. Indeed, within the VIP areas, it is entirely possible to install meeting rooms or offices.

Moreover, as this aircraft is certified by Public Transport, it is possible to charter it for a business trip in a group of 18 people. This aircraft can also reach airports that are inaccessible to conventional commercial aviation. So by travelling on board the ACJ 220, you can get as close as possible to your final destination, having rested and worked.

The aircraft has an electro-chromatic glass system that filters the light entering the aircraft. In addition, there is a high-efficiency HEPA air filter and a humidity control system. These systems also ensure a more relaxing flight.

The ACJ TWO TWENTY, is also an economical device for its category, despite its size! Airbus has created a new spacious aircraft. On the other hand, it is 1/3 less expensive in operating costs than competing private jets in the long-haul range. It also consumes 25% less fuel than the previous ACJ. Again, this is a cost saving. Especially on a long-haul flight.

Airbus, in October 2020 had already received 6 orders for the ACJ TWO TWENTY. Many companies therefore put their trust in the ACJ TWO TWENTY. Knowing that deliveries are not planned between now and 2023.

Finally, the aircraft’s motorisation by two Pratt & Whitney engines provides a guarantee of safety. The American engine manufacturer equips many private jets and civil aircraft. Among Pratt & Whitney’s references, we find the unavoidable Citation Mustang as well as the Hawker 4000 or the Boeing A320 range.
