Opus Aero has recently put up for sale an Airbus A319neo, configured in a private-jet configuration as the ACJ319neo, also displaying the aircraft at the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) in May 2023.
The company highlighted that the ACJ319neo can fly up to 13 hours non-stop, offering freedom and flexibility to every passenger who boards the aircraft. In addition to a spectacular interior, the aircraft offers Ka-band high-speed internet for business or leisure.
In total, 19 passengers can fly on the aircraft, with three distinctive living areas onboard, as well as a Master Stateroom which includes “a spacious ensuite washroom,” according to the company. “The mid part of the cabin has been meticulously designed to host business meetings or to serve as a luscious dining room,” Opus Aero added.
The ACJ319neo bears serial number 10673 and was built by Airbus in 2021. The aircraft operated its first flight on October 7, 2021, having been delivered to the initial customer on October 21, 2021. Currently, it is registered as P4-HUA, according to ch-aviation.com data. Per an Opus Aero brochure, the ACJ319neo has 70 flight cycles (FC) and 180:45 flight hours (FH) and is equipped with two CFM International LEAP 1-A engines.
As for the price of the aircraft? “Prices in our industry are always very confidential,” a spokesperson of Opus Aero said in a statement to AeroTime. In addition to the ACJ319neo in question, the company also has another ACJ319 for sale, as well as two Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) BBJ-1 aircraft, based on the Boeing 737-700 NextGeneration (NG).
For those looking to buy less – or more, depending on your point of view – lavish jet, Opus Aero also has a Dassault Falcon 7X and Gulfstream G500 awaiting offers from customers.
“The Bizliner market has always been a very steady but has recently become more attractive to buyers, since operation and maintenance costs have shown to be more attractive, compared to standard business jets,” the company’s representative commentated. One of the main factors why people might choose a commercial aircraft-based private jet is the fact that comfort levels are much higher, due “to the cabin size and completion centers offering a high level of custom finishes,” they concluded.
