Airbus Unveils New ACJ Cabin Designs

At Asian Aerospace 2011 Airbus today announced some new cabin concept designs for the Airbus Corporate Jets. The family of jets comprises the A318 Elite, Airbus ACJ, A320 Prestige and the A330, A340 Prestige, A350 Prestige and A380 Prestige. Airbus corporate jets have won more than 170 sales to date.

A new cabin concept called Phoenix features a colour-scheme and layout designed to appeal to Asian tastes.
The main cabin features seating for six people around a large circular-table. Airbus Corporate Jets are able to offer this feature because they have the widest and tallest cabin of any business jet, existing or planned, which allows a good-sized table, as well as space to pass by the side of it. Playing games is a passion in many Asian cultures, for example Mah Jong in China – so Airbus has designed the circular table to fold into a rectangular shape when needed, which better suited to this activity. The Phoenix cabin concept can also offer an area for Karaoke.
