Comlux refines appeal of its ACJs as it builds long haul capability
Fly Comlux has placed a firm order for a Global Express XRS featuring the new Global Vision flight deck. "Among all our jets, the Global Express XRS is the leader in terms of customer satisfaction, so this addition is a natural choice," says ceo Stephen Laven.

Fly Comlux has placed a firm order for a Global Express XRS featuring the new Global Vision flight deck. "Among all our jets, the Global Express XRS is the leader in terms of customer satisfaction, so this addition is a natural choice," says ceo Stephen Laven. "From the Challenger 605 to the Global Express XRS, these aircraft provide a luxurious yet highly productive environment for doing business in transit between meetings, or relaxing and enjoying the ride."

The 11-strong fleet also includes the Challenger 850 as well as the Global 5000. Laven says: "In addition, a previously ordered Challenger 605 and a previously ordered Global Express XRS jet are scheduled to join the fleet in the coming months.

"Comlux's expanding Bombardier jet fleet complements its existing Airbus corporate jet fleet and contributes to the company's strategic development plan to become the leading long haul charter services provider in Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East."

Comlux is also working with Sonaca, an aerostructure manufacturing company based in Belgium which produces slats for all Airbus aircraft, to refine the appeal of its ACJs. Richard Gaona, president of Comlux The Aviation Group, says: "While Sonaca is in charge of the design and manufacturing, Comlux becomes the exclusive provider of the polished slats.

"The certification and installation on the first aircraft is scheduled for July 2010 and from that moment such improvement will be available for any operator who would like to customise its aircraft. I am convinced this improvement will attract other operators, and I have tasked Christophe Lapierre, the head of our engineering and services division, to offer this option to every ACJ operator."
