Airbus wins ACJ320 order from Middle East customer

Aviation Link managing the aircraft
20 MAY 2014 PRESS RELEASE
Airbus has won an order from a Middle East customer for an Airbus ACJ320, adding to the strong presence of its corporate jets in the region.
The aircraft, which is being managed by Aviation Link of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, will be outfitted with a VVIP interior with seating for 30 passengers.
“Airbus corporate jets and their wider and taller cabins are popular in the Middle East, because they allow larger business and family groups to travel in greater comfort and space than traditional business jets,” says President and CEO Abdulaziz Al Rowaished. “As the operator of the largest fleet of privately owned Airbus aircraft in the Middle East,  Aviation Link is the natural choice for clients seeking a large cabin solution for their flight requirements. Aviation Link has the expertise to help customers get the best out of the modern Airbus corporate jet family, whether they be companies, individuals or governments,” he adds.
Aviation Link already manages two Airbus ACJ319s and an ACJ320 for Middle East clients.
“Aviation Link is well established in managing Airbus corporate jets in the Middle East, and the addition of an ACJ320 consolidates its position in this important market,” comments Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers, John Leahy. “Research[1] shows that Middle East customers want to travel in larger groups that include advisors and support staff, as well as business colleagues, friends and family, and Airbus corporate jets excel at handling that” he adds. 
Airbus’ ACJ320 Family delivers intercontinental range, easily connecting popular destinations in Europe and the Middle East. Similar in size externally to traditional business-jets, it gives passenger more on the inside, where it matters most, through the widest and tallest cabins.
Airbus corporate jets’ airliner heritage – they originate from the world’s most modern aircraft family – gives them excellent reliability, backed by a worldwide network sized to support more than 500 customers and operators worldwide, including services tailored to corporate jet needs.
It also means that they deliver more innovative features as standard, in both cabin and cockpit, such as the alluring ambience of domed ceilings and mood-matched lighting, as well as a pilot-pleasing environment backed by the support, simplicity and savings of fly-by-wire controls.
More than 170 Airbus corporate jets have been sold to date, and they are flying on every continent, including Antarctica, giving them a truly worldwide footprint.

Royal Brunei Airlines selects the A320neo

Firm order for seven aircraft plus three options
5 MAY 2014 PRESS RELEASE
Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) has signed a contract with Airbus covering the firm order of seven A320neo aircraft plus three options, under the latest phase of its fleet modernisation programme. Featuring a two class premium layout, the aircraft will be operated on the airline’s regional network linking Bandar Seri Begawan with destinations across Asia. The aircraft will be powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1100G-JM engines.
“RB has successfully operated the A320 family of aircraft since 2003. We are confident this latest NEO version will bring even greater levels of efficiency, with 15 per cent less fuel and a significantly reduced impact on the environment. At the same time, the new aircraft will offer unmatched levels of in-flight comfort, longer flying range and significant underfloor cargo capability”, said Dermot Mannion, Deputy Chairman of RB. 
“We are pleased that Royal Brunei Airlines has reaffirmed its commitment to the A320 Family,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “The order once again underscores the leading position of the A320neo in the single aisle market. We look forward to seeing the eco-efficient NEO fly in the colours of Royal Brunei Airlines.”
The A320 Family is the world’s best-selling single aisle product line with more than 10,200 orders to date and over 6,000 aircraft delivered. The latest version A320neo incorporates new engines and "Sharklet" wing tip devices which together deliver up to 15 percent in fuel savings. As at the end of March 2014, firm orders for the NEO already stood at over 2,700 aircraft from 50 customers around the globe, representing a 60 per cent share of orders in its category.
