EBACE : -Elite VIP completions concept now stretches to ACJ319
Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) and Lufthansa Technik are to expand their successful co-operation in pre-defined VIP cabin completions by offering the Elite concept on the ACJ319.
The two companies came together at the EBACE show in Geneva to launch the concept which had previously been successful on the smaller ACJ318.
As well as the cost-effectiveness of the pre-defined design, customers will see a much faster completion, typically around just six months.
The baseline configuration of the ACJ319 Elite consists of a crew-rest/entourage area, a spacious executive lounge with full-flat club-seating and berthable divans, followed by a mid-cabin lavatory.
Behind this area the baseline concept features a private office that converts to a bedroom and a master bathroom, including a shower option.
"Due to the huge market recognition we have maintained the basic layout of the original ACJ318 Elite," says Walter Heerdt, senior vicepresident - VIP & Executive Jet Solutions at Lufthansa Technik.
"However, in order to make full use of the additional floor-space of the ACJ319, customers can choose to add the optional executive office as an additional private room. With the master bathroom, private bedroom and executive office separated from the main cabin area, VIP customers can enjoy the utmost privacy and a perfect working environment while in the air,"
Besides the executive office and shower, the ACJ319 Elite features more than 20 additional layout and systems options for customers to choose from. Although pre-defined colour and material concepts are available, customers are free to select these finishing materials according to their individual preferences.
In order to experience the look and feel of their VIP interior in the most realistic way possible, customers can use the ACJ319 Elite App available for iPad. Numerous layout options and colour schemes can be selected and viewed in real-time, including ultra-realistic moving 3D-views of the interior.
