Comlux has delivered its second ACJ TwoTwenty cabin from its completion centre in Indianapolis; eight months after finishing the first project. The delivery is part of Comlux’s exclusive 15-aircraft partnership with the business jet manufacturer. Outfitting a third cabin is underway and is expected to be completed by the end of this year.

Speaking on Monday (February 19th), Richard Gaona, executive chairman and CEO, Comlux said: “The fourth ACJ TwoTwenty is arriving to Comlux Completion as a green aircraft in a few days, and we will be commencing its cabin outfitting as soon as it reaches our facilities. From 2025 onwards, we are targeting to deliver four to six ACJ TwoTwenty cabins per year.”

The latest ACJ TwoTwenty completion will be operated by the company’s charter and operatons business Comlux Aviation.

Chadi Saade, president, Airbus Corporate Jets, congratulated its partner Comlux for “the fabulous work” achieved on this second cabin. “The best keeps getting better,” he said. Saade went on to say the ACJ TwoTwenty is “a game changer” on the extra large business jet market, connecting business and communities across the world, bringing what he claimed is best in class comfort, efficiency and intercontinental range.

Also this week, Comlux revealed a new partnership with Pratt & Whitney to provide engine maintenance for the GTF PW1500G engines powering the ACJ TwoTwenty. Andrea Zanetto, CEO, Comlux Aviation said: “In private aviation, customers like to have a full support package for their aircraft operation. Airbus is offering such option for the airframe, Comlux for the cabin, and this collaboration with Pratt & Whitney is the complement we need to make all customers comfortable when buying the ACJ TwoTwenty.”

Nick Tomassetti, vice president, Sales & Marketing, Pratt & Whitney claimed the engines offered unmatched fuel efficiency and range, plus a 75% reduction in noise footprint. “We are supporting Comlux and its customers with engine maintenance services for the ACJ TwoTwenty, a unique aircraft offering in the business jet landscape,” he said.
