The Airbus ACJ TwoTwenty, launched just over a year ago, completed its first flight from Airbus' manufacturing plant at Mirabel airport in Montreal, Canada on 14 December, 2021. The production test flight was performed by Christophe Marchand and Adam Mason as test pilots and supported by Romuald Scheling as flight test engineer.

The aircraft will be delivered to Comlux in the coming weeks and then outfitted with a VVIP cabin by the completion centre in Indianapolis, USA after the delivery. Comlux has been selected as an exclusive outfitting partner for the first 15 aircraft.

The ACJ TwoTwenty is a new value proposition to business aviation buyers. It combines intercontinental range of up to 10,500 km, over 12 flight hours, with 785 sq ft of floor space for each passenger.

The ACJ TwoTwenty features six wide VIP living areas of around 130 sq ft each, and is at a price point of a ULR business jet.
