Tenth ACJ order confirms Comlux's top-end focus
Comlux, which has ordered its tenth ACJ and eleventh Challenger, confirms that the top end of the private charter market remains central to its development plans.

Comlux, which has ordered its tenth ACJ and eleventh Challenger, confirms that the top end of the private charter market remains central to its development plans.

Richard Gaona, president and ceo of Comlux The Aviation Group, says the company's third ACJ will take the fleet to 10 including four A318s, three ACJs, two A320 Prestiges and one A330-200 Prestige. "It makes us the largest Airbus ACJ family customer," he adds. "With this acquisition, Fly Comlux confirms its leading position in the top-end charter business. The aircraft will be equipped with CFM56-5 engines and will be outfitted in our completion centre in Indianapolis with a cabin designed by Comlux Creatives."

But although the top end of the market remains central to management and charter plans, Gaona stresses: "Comlux is one of the largest providers of vvipcharters at the top end of the market, a sector that continues to have good demand but our global strategy is to be a player in almost all business aviation sectors."

Comlux is also bringing another Challenger 605 into operation taking the number of Bombardier aircraft in its fleet to 11. "Comlux successfully began six years ago with the Challenger 604," says Stephen Laven, ceo, Fly Comlux. "The addition of a new Challenger 605 to our fleet supports our main objective of always operating brand new aircraft, offering the best value for money to our vip clients."

He adds: "The aircraft will be operated from our facility in Kazakhstan. From central Asia, it will be ideally placed to serve European destinations and the growing charter market in Asia."

Fly Comlux's fleet includes three Challenger 605s, two Challenger 850s, two Global 5000s, two Global Express and two Global Express XRS jets.

Comlux and MAZ Aviation (MAZAV) are launching an operation in Bahrain - the Comlux Middle East Company. An A318 Elite and an ACJ will serve the region and be joined by an A320 Prestige by the end of this year.
