Airbus Corporate Jet Centre delivers lightweight ACJ319 VVIP cabin to customer

Posted 20 May 2015 · Add Comment

A new lightweight VVIP cabin has been delivered on time by the Airbus Corporate Jet Centre (ACJC) to an undisclosed customer in Asia, who requested to fly from Southern Asia to Los Angeles.

ACJC exceeded its customer’s expectation by delivering a VIP cabin 10% lighter than contractual commitment, while assuring the very high quality of the cabin, both in terms of comfort and systems. 

This achievement is the result of a wonderful alchemy of innovations in communication systems, artistic design and cabinet making, associated with ACJC’s closeness to Airbus for optimising the ACJ319’s performance.

The cabin offers wireless system architecture, based on a brand new full Internet Protocol (IP) and Wi-Fi configuration, driving the Cabin Management System (CMS) and the In-Flight Entertainment (IFE). In addition the cabin-lining width is reduced, offering a wider cabin and a new perception of space. Innovation comes also from the digital tablets, offering state-of-the-art functions such as the streaming of music and video via a new full High-Definition (HD) Audio & Video On Demand system (AVOD). 

Able to welcome 15 passengers, this modern and elegant cabin, based on a refined interior design, offers a double office and a lounge at the front, followed by a large dining area, and then a VIP bedroom and ensuite bathroom with a square shower. “This lightweight but full comfort cabin was a great challenge that we used to meet the customer’s requirements, such as the VIP tables in the dining area whose stands are composite-based, combining futuristic design and lightness,” said Sylvain Mariat, head of ACJC’s creative design studio. 

“The best proof of ACJC’s expertise and innovative spirit was the compliment of our customer when he entered his ACJ, telling us that his cabin was a realisation of the 3D artistic views showed at the beginning of the story,” says ACJC General Manager Joël Frugier. “The customer had before him the cabin he had dreamt of, confirming that ACJC was the natural choice for his ACJ,” he concludes.
