SHANGHAI - The first firm order from an Asian customer for an Airbus ACJ319neo, the aircraft maker's business jet, has been placed, the company said on Monday.

Airbus has received firm orders for six ACJneo Family aircraft since its launch less than a year ago, highlighting its strong appeal in the marketplace, said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer for Customers.

The delivery will be made in the second quarter of 2019, he said.

Airbus delivered its first business jet to China in 2005. Now more than 20 Airbus business jets are in operation in China.

More than 180 Airbus corporate jets fly to every continent, including Antarctica.
