Airbus has begun offering customers the ACJ318 Enhanced, which embodies new features and introduces a catalogue of optional extras.
The Airbus ACJ318 Enhanced introduces new elements as standard – such as a more elegant cabin decor, new seats and high-definition in-flight entertainment – as well as formalising options such as fuel-saving Sharklets, a shower and a cinema lounge.
“We’ve always had a culture of innovation at Airbus,” points out Airbus chief operating officer, customers, John Leahy, “and the Airbus ACJ318 Enhanced cabin and efficiency improvements will help us to deliver even more value to customers – as well as giving the aircraft a fresher feel on the inside and a more lively look on the outside.”
New features that are standard on the Airbus ACJ318 Enhanced include new linings allowing a better integration of overhead lights and air supply outlets, and light-emitting diode (LED) illumination throughout.
Others include a wider choice of seats, including a new one with more comfortable curves and a more stylish shape, high-definition (HD) in-flight entertainment with Blu-ray player, state-of-the-art displays and HDMI interfaces for external equipment, and a new passenger information system.
When it comes to options, Airbus ACJ318 Enhanced customers now have a more defined and wider choice. These include Sharklets on the wingtips, which make the aircraft look nicer, as well as saving fuel and extending range, a shower in the ensuite bathroom to allow a fresher arrival, the ability to transform the aft lounge into a cinema, and mood-lighting.
Other options include ipod and ipad interfaces, including for cabin management, wireless local area network (LAN), even greater soundproofing, and a humidifier.
