The first Airbus ACJ TwoTwenty, an executive variant of the A220 single-aisle airliner, was delivered today from the A220 final assembly Line in Mirabel, Canada, to Comlux Completion in Indianapolis, Indiana, where the green corporate airliner will undergo a VIP completion. Airbus Corporate Jets said the TwoTwenty represents “a new and unique value proposition to business aviation buyers,” featuring intercontinental range and expansive personal space spread over six living areas at a price of about $72 million.
"Delivering the first-ever ACJ TwoTwenty to Comlux marks a major milestone in the business aviation industry,” said ACJ president Benoit Defforge. “This game-changer is going to pioneer new flying experiences and an unbeatable value proposition to the large business jet market."
Airbus Corporate Jets has partnered with Comlux, the Swiss VIP aircraft specialist and operator, and its U.S.-based completion facility to produce and install configurable interiors for the first 15 TwoTwentys. The preconfigured interiors will speed completion time and expense, and bring the completed cost below the price of a new ultra-long-range business jet, according to Airbus Corporate Jets.
“We are ready to get straight to work and deliver a quality, luxurious product to our client base,” Comlux Completion CEO Daron Dryer told AIN. Dubai-based luxury hospitality and investment company FIVE is the launch customer, with delivery of its completed TwoTwenty expected in December.
