First Business Jet A220-100 Carries Out Maiden Flight

Issue: 1 / 2022

In December last year, Airbus had conducted the first flight of a business jet variant of its A220-100, which the aerospace major has branded as the Airbus Corporate Jet (ACJ) Two Twenty. The business jet MSN50062, took off from Mirabel airport at Montreal on December 14 last year with two test pilots and a flight-test engineer on board. Airbus is intending to deliver over the next few weeks, the business jet powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1500G engine to Comlux that is a corporate jet operator. It will then be fitted with a VIP cabin at the customer’s facility in Indianapolis. Comlux has an exclusive agreement with Airbus to outfit the first 15 aircraft from the ACJ TwoTwenty line. Unveiled in October last year, the aircraft will have a 5,650nm range and offer six living areas inside the cabin.
