Today we heard from Flight Global that Airbus will be exhibiting one of its corporate jet models in South Africa.
The appearance at the South African show, will also mean Airbus is on the way to demonstrating its corporate aircraft range in every continent this year, save for Australasia and Antarctica, the largest ever geographical spread in a year for the airframer.
The company’s most recent destination was the LABACE business aviation show in São Paulo, Brazil, where it had an ACJ318 operated by Global Jet on display. It will tick off its final continent for the year, North America, when it attends the National Business Aviation Association convention in Florida at the end of October.
So far this year it has taken orders for a “handful” of its ACJ aircraft, Airbus says, while declining to give a specific tally.
