Jet Aviation, which recently delivered an executive A320-200 to the Saad Group in Saudi Arabia, is now making room at its Basel, Switzerland, facilities for a much larger airplane–an A340-600–for the same company. The four-engine Airbus (longer than any 747 or 777) is scheduled to arrive in Basel next month, with delivery set for mid-2009. Calling the project “major” would be understating the job. In addition to the usual conference/dining area and bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, the airplane will be equipped with video conferencing; in-flight satellite television; Internet access via wireless local area network; on-demand audio and video; and multiple exterior cameras, including one mounted in the vertical stabilizer. There will also be a below-deck crew-rest area. The design for the interior is the product of Francis Munich of Studio E/Motion.
