Kongo adds a splash of colour to the ACJ TwoTwenty
A special ACJ TwoTwenty cabin edition has been curated to allow passengers to properly rest or enjoy fine dining with friends and family, while admiring all the colours that life has to offer, thanks to Cyril Kongo.
CK adds pops of colour to the TwoTwenty interior.

Airbus Corporate Jets and contemporary artist Cyril Kongo (CK), aka Mr Colorful, have jointly designed an ACJ cabin, the ACJ TwoTwenty special cabin edition by Cyril Kongo.

Cyril Kongo has a pioneering spirit, which complements the ACJ's team's mindset, turning the extra-large business jet into a flying contemporary art gallery. The entire signature cabin has been envisioned by the ACJ design team to deliver comfort, connectivity and functionality in one space while CK's touch brings the cabin design to a next level of emotion.

Notably, the main lounge, which will be partly hand painted by CK, combines carefully chosen branded textures and fabrics.

The cabin edition has been curated to allow passengers to properly rest or enjoy fine dining with valued friends and family, while admiring all the colours that life has to offer. Cyril Kongo and the ACJ design team took full advantage of the ACJ TwoTwenty's large fuselage, which is at least two times wider than other business jets, allowing for a spaciously crafted table greeting, potentially serving up to eight guests. Comlux in Indianapolis will be the exclusive completion partner for the first 15 aircraft.

The ACJ TwoTwenty will offer substantial personal space with 73 sqm/785 sq ft of floor space, and will be the only business jet to offer six large VIP living areas for up to 19 passengers. The ACJ TwoTwenty will have an intercontinental range, capable of flying up to 5,650nm (over 12 hours flight time). It benefits from the ACJ DNA: comfort, intercontinental range, unbeatable economics and pioneering technology.

The ACJ TwoTwenty was launched in late 2020 and has already won orders for six aircraft. Comlux will be the first to take delivery of the ACJ TwoTwenty this winter and the first aircraft will enter into service early 2023.
