Posted 25 March 2019 · Add Comment

Comlux has taken delivery of the first of three ACJ320neo aircraft, which will now enter VIP cabin-outfitting by Comlux Completion in Indianapolis.



It is the largest customer for the ACJ320neo Family, which has already won a total of 11 orders.
 
“The new ACJ320neo gives us the means to deliver nonstop flights to even more of the world. CFM International has supported Comlux over the years and we have chosen its new, fuel-efficient and highly reliable LEAP-1A engines to power the aircraft. Comlux Completion will install a unique VIP cabin interior, using the most advanced technologies to offer the best comfort and luxury to our customer,” says Comlux Executive Chairman and CEO Richard Gaona.
 
The ACJ320neo family uses new engines and wingtip mounted Sharklets to deliver a 15 per cent fuel-saving, which also translates into a leap forward in range for business jet operators.
 
It comprises an ACJ320neo that can fly 25 passengers 13 hours or 6,000 nm/11,100 km, and an ACJ319neo that can transport eight passengers 15 hours or 6,750 nm/12,500 km.
 
“Airbus corporate jets already have a reputation for comfort, reliability and value, already enjoy similar operating costs  to traditional business jets through their airliner heritage, and are now even more economical in their NEO versions,” said ACJ President Benoit Defforge.
 
More than 700 A320neo Family aircraft are already in service with airlines and, with over 15,000 firm orders for the whole A320 Family, it is the clear leader in its class.
 
Airbus’ A320 Family pioneered features that are now standard in most new-generation business jets - such as enhanced-protection fly-by-wire controls, cost-saving centralised maintenance and weight-saving carbonfibre – ensuring that it has a long and successful future ahead of it.
 
More than 190 Airbus corporate jets are in service worldwide, flying on every continent, including Antarctica.
