China Sonangol orders three corporate jets


China Sonangol has ordered three Airbus corporate jets, becoming the first named Chinese customer for the aircraft. The airline’s first corporate jet is undergoing cabin outfitting at the Associated Air Center in Dallas, Texas, and will be delivered soon. Airbus says the sales of its corporate jet family, including the A318 Elite and A320 Prestige, has risen in double-digit figures. There are 80 orders for the corporate jets worldwide. Airbus says its corporate jet family aircraft has twice the cabin width and three times the cabin volume of older top-of-the-line business jets, as well as the most modern design of any corporate jet, while remaining as affordable and delivering unmatched quality and value. “We give customers the space in which to realize their dreams," says Airbus Chief Operating Officer for Customers John Leahy. The aircraft makers says benefits of the modern Airbus corporate jet family include advanced fuel-saving aerodynamic design with wingtip fences as standard, extensive use of weight-saving carbon-fiber structure, and modern systems that encompass a cost-saving common cockpit, fly-by-wire controls and centralized maintenance.
