Airbus introduced this VIP executive shuttle in 2005, basing it on the smallest of its Airbus A320 family of narrow-body airliners, the medium-range A318. This is the same layout used for the Airbus Corporate Jet ACJ318.

Available in two cabin layouts, the interior is designed for 14-18 passengers, although up to 50 passengers can comfortably when used a shuttle airliner.

Twin CFM International turbofans deliver plenty of thrust and power for Steep Approach landings by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), meeting the obstacle and noise requirements at airports such as London City.

Once it reaches its cruise altitude of 41,000 ft, it’s able to fly up to 4,000 nautical miles (7,400 km) at speeds reaching up to 623 mph.
