Airbus Delivers Record Number Of Corporate Jets

Wins New Business Taking Total Orders To More Than 170 Aircraft

Airbus says it delivered 15 corporate jets in 2010 worth more than US$ 1.5 billion at list prices, setting a new record for this facet of its business. The aircraft comprised 13 A318 Elites, Airbus Corporate Jetliners (ACJs) and A320 Prestiges, plus two VIP widebody A330/A340s.

Airbus also won eight orders for its corporate jets in 2010, taking total orders to date to more than 170 aircraft. The new orders comprised seven aircraft from the A318 Elite/Airbus ACJ/A320 Prestige Family, plus one widebody A330/A340. The orders and the deliveries were both for customers and operators in Asia, Europe and the Middle East, and were both for private customers and governments – most of which prefer to remain undisclosed.

“Corporate jets are a largely unseen enabler of company success and growth, as well as supporting the business of government, and Airbus’ modern aircraft family is a key contributor in both fields,” points out Airbus COO, Customers, John Leahy. "Like our airliner business, the market for our corporate jets is worldwide and growing, as more and more customers recognise the greater capability, benefits and value that we offer, when compared with traditional business jets."

The past year also saw more and more Airbus corporate jets being offered for VIP charter flights, with more than 15 A318 Elites, Airbus ACJs and A320 Prestiges now available through more than ten operators in America, Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Middle East.
