Airbus has won its first corporate jet sale in Japan, adding a new customer and building on its growing presence in the important Asia-Pacific market.
The aircraft, an Airbus ACJ318, has the widest and tallest cabin of any corporate jet, while being similar in size externally to traditional business jets.
Airbus stated, ‘Corporate jets are still proportionately few in Japan, where the opening of the first dedicated business terminal in Tokyo, Premier Gate Narita, will help to pave the way for more of these aircraft.’
The company says it has secured about 170 orders since its first corporate jet was delivered in the mid-1980s.
“They are the only bizjets flying on every continent, including Antarctica,” says Airbus.
