This Airbus ACJ318 features the comfort and practicality of home and office, plus seating for 19 passengers, which is more than traditional business jets.
“Airbus corporate jets are similar in size to traditional business jets on the outside, but are around twice as big on the inside, allowing them to deliver a more comfortable space in which to travel, as well as the ability to carry more passengers.”

Korean Air is to inaugurate its new A380 “superjumbo” on a route between New York City and Seoul this week.
The airline, which is the seventh in the world to fly the enormous Airbus aircraft, will wave off the first A380 flight from New York across the Pacific Ocean on August 9, launching what it describes as a “new age of air travel.”
It will be the first A380 service between Asia and New York, carrying some 407 passengers — considerably less than the 525 that the A380 is capable of.
A futuristic airplane concept could herald a future where business and economy class give way to work and play areas on board the aircraft of the future.
That’s the vision of Airbus, which this week unveiled its ideas of the plane of 2050, complete with a ‘bionic’ shell which turns partially transparent to provide a panoramic view for passengers.
In the front, the company has integrated a relaxation (“vitalizing”) area, while the rear of the aircraft includes a “smart tech” space for working and virtual conferencing.

As part of a partnership between private jet charter and ownership firm VistaJet and Bombardier Aerospace, acclaimed street artist RETNA has hand-painted a unique work of art on the tail of a VistaJet Global Express XRS.
The $60 million luxury aircraft, an ultra long range corporate and VIP high speed wonder, will be the new star of VistaJet’s fleet of 31 private jets.
Drawing from a wide array of influences including gang graffiti, Asian calligraphy, Incan and Egyptian hieroglyphics, and Hebrew and Arabic script, RETNA’s vision is designed to be a new and unique “international visual language”.
