Comlux Orders Tenth Airbus Corporate Jet

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Comlux has ordered a third Airbus Corporate Jetliner (ACJ), taking its total orders for Airbus corporate jets to ten aircrafts—4 A318s, 3 Airbus ACJs, 2 A320 Prestiges and one A330-200 Prestige—and making it the largest Airbus ACJ Family customer. Some of the aircrafts are managed for private customers and some are used to provide VVIP charters, as will the newly ordered aircraft.

“With this acquisition, Fly Comlux confirms its leading position in the top-end charter business,” said Richard Gaona, President and CEO of Comlux The Aviation Group. “The aircraft will be equipped with CFM International CFM56-5 engines, will be outfitted in our completion centre in Indianapolis with a cabin designed by Comlux Creatives, and confirms our global strategy to be a player in almost all business aviation sectors.’

A Comlux Airbus ACJ for VVIP charters is currently on display at the Dubai show. “Comlux is one of the largest providers of VVIP charters at the top end of the market, a sector that continues to have good demand today,” stated Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers John Leahy, adding, “Quality will always be in demand, and combining Comlux’s VVIP service with the space and comfort of Airbus corporate jets is a winning combination.”

Airbus’ ACJ Family has the widest, tallest and nicest cabin in its class, delivering almost twice the cabin-width of even the largest traditional business jets from other manufacturers. As part of the world’s most modern airliner product-line, the Airbus ACJ Family is the only one that is truly young at heart throughout, with the newest fuel-saving aerodynamic design, the latest weight-saving structure, and reliable state-of-the-art systems and controls throughout—including the new industry standard, fly-by-wire.

The Airbus ACJ Family is complemented by VIP versions of the company’s wide-body aircrafts, which offer even more space and comfort, as well as “non-stop to the world” range. More than 160 Airbus corporate jets have been sold worldwide, comprising over 100 A318 Elites, ACJs and A320 Prestiges, plus nearly 50 VIP and government wide-bodies.
