Comlux delivered the first completed ACJ TwoTwenty—the newest member of the Airbus Corporate Jets family—to launch customer Five Hotels and Resorts, the Swiss VIP aircraft services specialist announced yesterday. Airbus Corporate Jets partnered with Comlux in 2020 to bring the executive variant of the Airbus 220 single-aisle airliner to the business aviation market. Comlux is designing and installing the interiors on the first 16 of the TwoTwenty; at least 10 have been ordered to date.

The cabin, which was completed in 14 months, has been EASA certified, and the completion rate is expected to accelerate going forward. Comlux offers a variety of preconfigured interior elements, allowing customers to create a personalized luxury interior, while keeping costs and delivery time down. Though the interior is some 50 percent larger than an ultra-long-range business jet, the company said the ACJ’s purchase price and hangar footprint are the same.

Featuring a primary suite with a king-sized bed and spa-like shower, Dubai-based Five will use the new jet to expand its hospitality empire into the sky, with its “Fly FIVE” service, “Establishing the next level in private aviation,” said CEO Aloki Batra.

Comlux chairman and CEO Richard Gaona called the project “the first of many amazing ACJ TwoTwenty cabins we will develop,” while Airbus Corporate Jets president Benoit Defforge hailed the platform’s “unbeatable operational efficiency, unmatched comfort, and technology.”
