Founded on December 1970, Airbus SE is a European multinational group that manufactures and sells civil and military aircraft. Airbus joined the Business Jet market in 1997 with the A319 Corporate Jet. The company is especially known for having launched the Airbus 320, the first commercially viable digital fly-by-wire airliner, and the A380, which is the world’s largest passenger airliner to this day.
Airbus Corporate Jets offers Business Airliners for private and corporate customers with narrow-body aircraft such as the ACJ318, ACJ319, ACJ320 and ACJ321, and wide-body aircraft such as the ACJ330-200, the ACJ340-300, the ACJ-340-500, the ACJ-340-600, the ACJ350 and the ACJ380-800 nicknamed the “Flying Palace”.
Airbus is currently working in collaboration with Rolls-Royce plc and Siemens to develop the E-Fan X hybrid-electric aircraft demonstrator. Announced in November 2017 at the Royal Aeronautical Society in London, the E-Fan X is supposed to fly in 2020.
