The Czech Republic has ordered two Airbus Corporate Jetliners (ACJs), bringing the sales tally of the ACJ family to 70 aircraft.

The CFM International CFM56-5-powered aircraft will replace the Tupolev Tu-154s in service and will be used for government official and troop transportation. The aircraft will be completed by Luthansa Technik.

The Czech Republic is the third European country after France and Italy to acquire the widebody business jet for government transportation. An Airbus artist's impression is pictured below.
