Airbus customers chief operating officer John Leahy said: “For customers, such as countries needing to fly heads of state and delegations worldwide on government business, the ACJ330neo offers an unbeatable combination of modern design, proven capability and productivity, as well as being part of the world’s best-selling wide-body family.”
Airbus has so far received more than 2,000 orders from over 170 customers and operators for its A330 and A340 aircraft.

The Infinito cabin design has been jointly developed by Italy’s Pagani Automobili and Airbus Corporate Jets.
