Associated Air Center (AAC) has signed a contract for a new, green Airbus A320CJ VVIP narrow-body completion project with a Middle Eastern customer.

This project represents the DAE subsidiary’s 18th A320 completion programme since becoming and Airbus Completion Center in 2003.

The cabin layout for the aircraft will feature a nose-to-tail customized VVIP interior equipped with a custom forward galley complex, a master bedroom and lavatory, followed by a large main lounge separated into three areas – a mid-cabin VIP lavatory, an aft staff area and passenger lavatory and an aft custom galley. The aircraft will also be equipped with a state-of-the-art In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) system featuring large bulkhead mounted LED screens, Audio and Video on Demand (AVOD) and surround sound. The passenger connectivity will feature Satcom Broad Band (SSB) and GSM on-board.
The project will begin immediately with interior design and development of the technical specifications. The new ACJ320 aircraft is expected to arrive at AAC’s Dallas facility in August, 2015.
“We are pleased to have signed this project and looking forward to delivering another high-quality completion for this prominent and repeat customer,” said James Colleary, president of AAC. “2014 has been a banner year for AAC and we are actively biding and loading our shop and completion schedules for 2015 and beyond.”

The company's vertically-integrated, state-of-the-art facility employs the most advanced engineering in the industry along with operational excellence and superior customer service from start to finish.
