Comlux has delivered its first VIP wide body cabin completion of an Airbus ACJ330.
Both the interior design and the cabin outfitting have been performed by Comlux Completion, the group's completion and services centre, based in Indianapolis, USA.
The ultra-spacious interior of over 200 sqm/2,200 sq ft allows up to 31 passengers to travel in various master suites, lounges, a dining area and first-class seating. The aircraft is also equipped with a gym room and an entertainment area featuring a 52 inch curved OLED monitor.
Since 2009, Comlux Completion has completed a full range of narrow body completions from ACJ319/BBJ to ACJ321/BBJ3, consistently demonstrating its ability to deliver the most customised and innovative interiors to its VIP clients. This aircraft represents the 12th interior completion for Comlux Completion overall and its first wide body completion.
“With our first wide body completion, we are now entering in the “Club” of the very few wide body approved completion centres. With the new management team in place in Indianapolis led by Domingo Ureña-Raso, executive president and Daron Dryer, CEO, we are ready for the next challenges in the VIP completion industry,” says Richard Gaona, executive chairman and CEO Comlux.” This ACJ330 is the perfect example of our competencies within the Comlux group, from transactions to completions and operations. Beyond interior outfitting by Comlux Completion, the aircraft was sold by Comlux Transactions to an undisclosed client in 2018 and Comlux Aviation has just started to operate the aircraft through its dedicated wide-body AOC in Aruba, already operating two large VIP BBJ767 and BBJ777.”
Comlux has also placed one Global 7500 and one Challenger 650 with two different customers, as well as the signing of a contract for aircraft management and operation of the Challenger 650.
The Global 7500, belonging to the Comlux portfolio, was sold to an undisclosed customer in the United States and is due for delivery in 2020.
For the Challenger 650, Comlux Transactions assisted its customer in the acquisition phase of the brand-new aircraft from the manufacturer Bombardier. The aircraft entered into service earlier in May with Comlux Aviation, the VIP operations division of the Comlux Group. The arrival of the aircraft based in Russia, and operated under Comlux Malta's EASA AOC, increases the existing Comlux fleet of business jets and consolidates the extensive experience Comlux has on Bombardier operations since its creation in 2003.
