ACJ MAKES a Perfect 10 for Comlux

 - November 16, 2009, 8:28 AM

Aircraft management and charter firm Comlux yesterday placed an order for its tenth Airbus executive jet, making it the largest single operator of the aircraft manufacturer’s bizliners. The $75 million deal signed here at the Dubai show brings Comlux’s total order for ACJs to three, in addition to previous orders for four A318 Elites, two A320 Prestiges and one A330-200 Prestige–a cumulative order value that exceeds $800 million, Airbus said.
So far four of these aircraft have been delivered to Comlux–two A318 Elites and two ACJs. The first A320 Prestige is slated to be handed over in June next year. Its ACJs and Elites are each currently averaging between 60 and 80 revenue flight hours per month, said Comlux president and CEO Richard Gaona.
Celebrating the signing yesterday afternoon (l-r) were Airbus COO for customers John Leahy, Gaona and Airbus Middle East president Habib Fekih.    o
