Jet Aviation’s Completions Center in Basel announced the outfitting and redelivery of its first ACJ319neo aircraft, the quietest VVIP cabin that the center has completed to date.
Building on a commitment to meeting customer demands for lighter, quieter cabins, the ACJ319neo was designed by the Jet Aviation Design Studio in collaboration with the customer’s own interior designer to showcase a truly VVIP level of elegance and attention to detail.
The brief was to maximize light in the cabin, achieved through strategic placement of decorative mirrored panels throughout the interior. Each mirror is etched with an intricate pattern reflected in the carpet and moldings to add subtle layers of detail to the calm and refined aesthetic. A custom embroidered art panel depicting an Oriental scene hangs above the bed in the master bedroom, with complementary artworks hanging throughout the cabin. Furnishings in cream and light beige, are complemented with gold, mother of pearl, and Calcatta and Onyx marble detail.
“Our in-house Design Studio worked closely with Engineering and Production to realize the customer’s vision in exquisite detail,” says Jeremie Caillet, Vice President Completions. “The cabin is extremely comfortable, with a remarkably quiet interior, all at reduced weight. This was made possible by Jet Aviation’s commitment to constant improvement in production and process. Our departments have been working together to rethink industry norms, and apply new methodologies to create the next generation of VVIP cabins that are not only beautifully designed and crafted, but are lighter and quieter, thus reducing fuel consumption while still providing passengers exceptional levels of comfort.”
“As the market continues to demand quieter and lighter cabins, we are delighted to provide a benchmark for achieving the optimum blend of both, with no compromise on customer comfort or aesthetics,” adds Matthew Woollaston, VP Completions Sales. “This ACJ319neo is a fine testament to our ability to meet these demands, while retaining the highest levels of quality and comfort that Jet Aviation is known for.”
