Though admittedly splendid, Emirates A380 and Boeing 777 aircraft aren’t functional for those who prefer to – or have to – fly private.

Enter the Airbus A319 ACJ Executive Jet that caters to the uncrowned royalty of the world. The Executive A319 ACJ can fly billionaires and their teams (19 guests in all) in the lap of luxury.

Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ divisional senior vice-president for planning, aeropolitical and industry affairs, commented, “We have seen an increasing demand in the private travel segment, especially in the Middle East and Europe as well as in markets such as India, Russia and China, we are looking to tap into this niche market with the high quality of service and attention to detail.”

The private jet has the range to fly within eight hours’ distance of any airport and can reach all continents, with one stop to the Americas.

Let’s explore what marvels the Emirates Executive jet contains …

Plush private suites

Emirates Executive A319’s suites provide just the right amount of breathing room and privacy.

The interior of the Emirates Executive A319 aircraft can be completely customised to suit your travel requirements. The on-board suites impress first with scale (the private suites are more extensive than those in Emirates Premium First Class cabins) and then with privacy.

The Emirates Executive A319 provides a comfortable in-flight experience, to say the least.

The doors slide shut to enclose passengers in a cosy cocoon, including flatbed seats, a visitor’s chair and ambient lighting.

Passengers won’t be bored on board the Emirates Executive A319 with the available in-flight entertainment.

Entertainment and respite are taken care of thanks to a well-stocked minibar and a personal 32-inch screen for in-flight entertainment. Passengers can look forward to personal service and relaxing on a large bed of feather pillows.

A rejuvenating on-board spa shower

Treat yourself to a luxurious shower with Sodashi spa products aboard the Emirates Executive A319.

Travelling via the Emirates Executive A319 also involves mid-flight rejuvenation in the luxurious spa shower and separate powder room. Make the most of your leisurely time 12,000 metres in the air by unwinding in a spa decked out in classic walnut and marble. Allow your fast-paced life to slow down as you indulge in a range of Sodashi products. Then dry off using the finest linens.

Dining amid the stars

Master chefs prepare light snacks, a gourmet buffet, afternoon tea and cocktails aboard the Emirates Executive A319.
In a similar vein as Kylie Jenner’s US$73 million Kylie Air, Emirates master chefs offer a delicious in-flight dining experience with sumptuous meals, light snacks, a gourmet buffet when travelling with a large party, afternoon tea with hors d’oeuvres, and the most tantalising cocktails and canapés.
Emirates Executive A319’s lounge area is huge enough to transform into a private restaurant.

Much like the living area in a five-star hotel suite, a dedicated lounge is where conversations, discussions or meals take place at your discretion. The expansive space can be occupied as a private restaurant, board room, or hang-out space where you can unwind with friends.

Uninterrupted business

Conduct your business as usual aboard the Emirates Executive A319.

If you’re flying for business, not pleasure, the Emirates Airbus A319 ACJ has got you covered too, allowing you to conduct business globally with convenience, luxury and top-notch service.

To conduct business en route, a conference table can be arranged with the latest technology at your disposal. That way, you can have your team on board and conduct business as usual – albeit 12,000 metres in the sky. Or you can jet with your team to evening cocktails in Europe after taking breakfast in Dubai. As you do.

The Emirates Executive A319 provides connectivity throughout the entire flight with high-speed internet.

If the lounge area isn’t enough space for you to entertain guests, the private office doubles up as a lounge as well, where you can socialise over drinks and canapés. And when it comes to overnight business trips, 15 guests can sleep in suites while five more can snooze on converted beds in the lounge.

Passengers also benefit from high-speed internet and mobile phone connectivity throughout the flight, of course.

While the pricing for the Emirates Executive Jet differs on many factors such as the route, number of passengers and so forth, you can expect to shell out around US$15,000 to US$20,000 per hour.
