ACJ TwoTwenty completes first flight


Airbus’ business jet, the ACJ TwoTwenty has completed its first flight.

The production test flight from Mirabel airport took place on December 14, 2021 and was performed by test pilots Christophe Marchand and Adam Mason, supported by Romuald Scheling as Flight Test Engineer.

The aircraft will be delivered to Comlux in the coming weeks and then outfitted with a VVIP cabin by Comlux in Indianapolis, USA after the delivery. Comlux has been selected as an exclusive outfitting partner for the first 15 ACJ  (Airbus Corporate Jets) TwoTwenty aircraft.

The ACJ TwoTwenty program was launched just over a year ago.

The ACJ TwoTwenty provides an intercontinental range of  up to 5,650 nm (10,500 km),  or more than 12 flight hours and 73 square meters (785 square feet) of interior floor space.

It is the only business jet capable of providing six wide VIP living areas and is equipped with a signature flexible cabin catalogue, suitable for private and business jet users.

Some 200 Airbus corporate jets are in service worldwide, flying on every continent, including Antarctica.
