Comlux Completion, based in Indianapolis, Indiana, has fitted out the cabin interior of an ACJ320neo, the first one of the type completed by the facility.
Despite the COVID-19 situation, the outfitting programme continued in compliance with the safety measures implemented in the facility since March 2020, and the aircraft was delivered successfully to an undisclosed customer.
Two more ACJ320neo are currently undergoing completion at Comlux's Indianapolis facilities. The second aircraft will be delivered in spring 2021. The third aircraft, which belongs to a customer of the DC Aviation Group, will be delivered in autumn 2021. A fourth ACJ320neo will arrive in April 2021 in Indianapolis to start its VIP cabin completion process.
CEO Daron Dryer says: “Despite the challenging situation we have been facing during the last six months because of COVID-19, our teams have more than ever remained motivated and focused on delivering exceptional quality performance on our first ACJ320neo completion. With two more aircraft of the type in outfitting process right now, and more to come soon, Comlux is becoming the completion centre of reference for the ACJneo aircraft family.”
Comlux Completion has also performed the installation and certification tests of the Aviation Clean Air ionisation system on an Airbus ACJ320neo in completion phase.
Ionisation is a natural purification process which improves air quality in the cabin by removing pathogens, viruses, bacteria and spores in the air and on surfaces, and by eliminating annoying and noxious odours. The maintenance-free system provides the ionisation through the existing environmental controlsSystem (ECS) supply duct of the aircraft, without producing harmful ozone or chemicals.
Dryer comments: “It is the first time the ionisation system has been installed and certified on an Airbus ACJ320neo. Combined with the efficient HEPA filtering system of the aircraft, the ionisation system further enhances the cabin air quality, providing our VIP customers with a clean and safe cabin atmosphere at all times during the flight. With the current worldwide situation on COVID-19, we are receiving more requests from customers who wish to fly with even more peace of mind.”
