Airbus Corporate Jets has employed the services of Italian supercar manufacturer Atelier Pagani Automobili in developing a new cabin design for its ACJ319neo aircraft.
Named Infinito, the design most notably includes a sky ceiling that can be set to display a live view of the sky above the cabin or other images. The initial concept and aesthetic was developed by Pagani, with input from Airbus Corporate Jets on aircraft design and compatibility.
“In bringing together the best of the supercar and business jet worlds, we enable an elegant and seamless link for customers of both, while bringing a fresh approach to cabin design and satisfying very demanding standards,” said Benoit Defforge, managing director of Airbus Corporate Jets.
Also part of the aircraft are lounge and conference areas, which are divided by shell-shaped walls that can be switched from transparent to opaque with the push of a button. Interiors also feature leather carpets and a wooden floor, while carbon fibre is included in the furniture and wall frames.
Overall, the ACJ319neo is able to fly eight passengers and can travel for about 15 hours.
Earlier this week, the company announced it would be launching a private jet version of the A330neo that can seat 25 passengers – similar to its current A320neo models.
Meanwhile, in related news Singapore Airlines’ four soon-to-be released A380s from 2007 and 2008 are now being offered as private jets. The airline announced recently that it would not be renewing the leases on the four superjumbos.
