Acropolis Aviation has awarded AMAC Aerospace in Switzerland a completion contract for a VVIP Airbus ACJ320neo .
According to AMAC Aerospace, this is the first Airbus A320neo delivered by Airbus Corporate Jets for VVIP configuration. The launch customer for the ACJ320neo, Acropolis Aviation, is enhancing its bespoke aviation services with the addition of this VVIP aircraft.
Farnborough- based Acropolis Aviation selected the well-known design studio Alberto Pinto for the bespoke interior design of its ACJ320neo last May 2016. The green delivered aircraft will enter AMAC’s hangar doors in Q4, 2018 and will be returned to service to Acropolis Aviation in VVIP configuration in Q4, 2019.
“With great pleasure, we have signed this completion contract with Airbus Corporate Jet’s launch customer, Acropolis Aviation, as one of the world’s leading private aviation operators, in our 10th anniversary year. This new completion project is based on the excellent reputation that AMAC has gained in the market which we continuously demonstrated over the last 19 VIP/ VVIP and refurbishment/ modification projects at AMAC Aerospace,” said Mr. Bernd Schramm, group chief operating officer, AMAC Aerospace.
Acropolis Aviation selected AMAC Aerospace following an extensive and competitive six-month long tender process. “The quality offered by AMAC is second-to-none. We needed to select the right outfitter to bring Alberto Pinto’s amazing vision to life, and from our point of view AMAC demonstrated to us they had the skill and creativity to do this better than anyone else,” said Jonathan Bousfield, CEO of Acropolis Aviation.
