Expands Airbus corporate jet family
‘Comlux The Aviation Group’ has signed a commitment for an Airbus ACJ321 - the first ever placed with Airbus for the type – expanding the Airbus corporate jet family.
The Airbus ACJ321 features the widest and tallest cabin of any business jet, as well as even more floorspace and baggage capacity than today’s ACJ318, ACJ319 and ACJ320.
“Airbus’ ACJ321 will enable us to offer our passengers even more of the comfort and space that are the hallmarks of the Airbus corporate jet Family, while delivering the highest standards in service on board,” says Comlux Chief Executive Officer Richard Gaona.
“Adding the Airbus ACJ321 to our corporate jet family gives our customers an even wider choice in what is now established as the premier line in business jets,” says Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers, John Leahy.
The Comlux Airbus ACJ321 will be outfitted by Comlux America. It will be powered by CFM International CFM56-5B engines.
The latest deal means that Comlux will be the first to operate the Airbus ACJ318, ACJ319, ACJ320 and A321.
Airbus’ ACJ318, ACJ319, ACJ320 and ACJ321 are the new top-end of the large corporate-jet market, because their cabins are around twice as wide as those of traditional business jets, and because they are unmatched in the home and office comforts that they allow customers to take into the air.
They provide this extra space and comfort within a similar aircraft length and wingspan to that of competing business-jets, and can also take off and land in similar distances.
Airbus also offers VIP widebodies for customers that want to carry more people even further, delivering even more comfort and space, plus “nonstop to the world” capability.
Airbus corporate jets are the only business jets flying on every continent, including Antarctica.
