Airbus reimagines the A220-100 as 'xtra large' business jet
Wednesday, 7 October 2020
Since acquiring the A220 program earlier this year Airbus has wasted no time throwing its weight behind the project, with a new production line in Alabama, and now a fully-featured long-range business jet variant.

Airbus Corporate Jets has launched the ACJ TwoTwenty business jet, and reckons to have created a whole new market segment - the "Xtra Large Business Jet".

The new variant includes, for the first time, a flexible cabin catalogue which addresses the requirements of the heavy and long-range business jet categories. While occupying the same parking space and being able to take off from the same airports as competing business jets, the ACJ TwoTwenty will offer three times more cabin space, yet with a third less operating costs benefiting from the high performance of Airbus' latest A220 family.

The ACJ TwoTwenty is a clean-sheet design aircraft, based on Airbus' A220-100, featuring advanced materials and state-of-the-art technologies. The cabin will offer better connectivity than its competitors, a Wi-Fi system across all the cabin and latest innovations such as electro-chromatic windows and LED lighting. It will have an increased range enabling the aircraft to fly up to 5,650 nm/10,500 km (over 12 flight hours), directly connecting city pairs like London and Los Angeles, Moscow and Jakarta, Tokyo and Dubai as well as Beijing and Melbourne.

Featuring 73 square metres of floor space distributed over six wide VIP living areas, the ACJ TwoTwenty offers selected interior arrangements and handcrafted furnishing. The cabin will allow up to 18 passengers to work, share, dine and relax at their discretion thanks to its cabin versatility and options suiting their needs and taste.

"We are proud to extend the ACJ product Family with the launch of the ACJ TwoTwenty. The aircraft combines intercontinental range, unmatched personal space and comfort for all passengers. This latest technology platform offers unbeatable economics and unrivalled reliability,"says Benoit Defforge, President ACJ. "Based on its compelling market appeal, we see promising demand for this aircraft in the growing business jet market."
