Airbus Corporate Jets

  1. Airbus Corporate Jets

    Airbus is an aircraft manufacturing subsidiary of EADS, a European aerospace company. Based in Blagnac, France, a suburb of Toulouse, Airbus began as a consortium of aerospace manufacturer when several European defense and aerospace companies converged in between 1999 and 2000. The company produced and markets the first commercial fly-by-wire airliner, the Airbus A320, as well as the world's largest airliner; the A380.

    Following the introduction of Boeing's 737 Business Jet to the corporate world, Airbus entered private jet market in 1997 with the A319 Corporate Jet. The initial Airbus Corporate jet was a A319CJ, but any Airbus Commercial Jet can be converted to a Business Jet or Private Jet. More than 170 Airbus corporate jets have been sold.

    The Airbus ACJ319 (an acronym for Airbus Corporate Jet 319) is the corporate jet version of the commercial airline jet; the A319. It features removable fuel tanks installed in the cargo compartment that gives a range of 6,500 nautical miles. Certified by both European JAA and American FAA, the A319LR and ACJ variants are the only business jets approved for public transport on both sides of the Atlantic.

    These aircraft seat anywhere from 19 to 50 passengers, but can also be configured to any specifications set forth by customers. The A319CJ competes with the Boeing BBJ1, Gulfstream G550 and Bombardier Global Express. Because of its larger diameter fuselage, it offers more space than its competitors. It is also powered by the same engines as the A320.

    Airbus employs approx. 50,000 people in 16 different facilities in Europe; France, UK, Germany and Spain. Final assembly takes place in Toulouse , Hamburg, Seville and Tianjin in the People's Republic of China. Airbus also has subsidiaries in the United States, Japan, China and India.
