Building on the success story of the ACJ318 Elite, with 19 deliveries to date, and based on market demand, Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) and Lufthansa Technik will expand their successful co-operation in pre-defined VIP cabin completions by offering the Elite concept on the ACJ319. The new “ACJ319 Elite” product will be officially launched at EBACE 2015 and is available immediately.

The Airbus ACJ319 Elite complements the modular ACJ319 concepts and fully customised cabins that are already available from Airbus Corporate Jets and Lufthansa Technik.

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 Vice President – 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,” Heerdt adds.

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. The tool demonstrates the large variety of cabin configurations available and will be presented at the Lufthansa Technik booth (#T089, hall 6) and Airbus booth at EBACE 2015.

With all these new exciting features and options in place, however, one thing has not changed: the ACJ319 Elite will continue to impress customers with full VIP cabin completion and value, plus an unrivalled rapidity, starting from just six months layover time.
