Comlux has delivered the world's first ACJ TwoTwenty with a brand new cabin certified by EASA to FIVE Hotels and Resorts. The VIP cabin was completed in 14 months obtaining a full EASA certification. The aircraft operated by Comlux is now available for charter while based in Dubai, UAE.

“Today is a special day,” says Richard Gaona, executive chairman and CEO of Comlux. “First of all, I want to thank our client, FIVE for its trust. I also wish to thank the Comlux and Airbus teams who worked so diligently to bring this magnificent space to life. This is the first of many amazing ACJ TwoTwenty cabins we will develop.”

The ACJ TwoTwenty is a dare-to-be-different jet, equipped with Pratt & Whitney engines and a cabin that has been engineered and designed to be the first of its kind. The spacious cabin boasts all the conveniences of modern luxury living, but in the sky.

“This aircraft is a spectacular new chapter for FIVE,” adds Aloki Batra, CEO, FIVE Hospitality. “A world-famous frontrunner in entertainment driven hospitality, FIVE now expands its award-winning portfolio to include a FIVE-styled experience that extends the unique and matchless 'Vibe at FIVE' from our hotels on the ground to a luxe immersive experience amongst the clouds. We will now be able to offer a flawless and bespoke experience by establishing the next level in private aviation. Fly FIVE is FIVE Hotel and Resort's newest home in the skies, and we are excited to welcome our guests on board.”

“With its stunning design, spacious two times larger cabin than a typical business jet and state-of-the-art technology including unparalleled onboard connectivity, the ACJ TwoTwenty sets a new standard in long-haul business travel. We are immensely proud to see this game-changing aircraft complete, offering unbeatable operational efficiency and unmatched comfort. I have no doubt that it will be embraced by its users and raise the bar in the business jet market,” concludes Benoit Defforge, ACJ president.
