Comlux places order for fourth ACJ320neo aircraft

Aircraft manufacturer Airbus has announced that Swiss airline Comlux has placed a new ACJ320neo order, further cementing its position as the aircraft’s largest single customer.

It takes the total number of ACJ320neo aircraft ordered by the airline to four, meaning they have now ordered 20 Airbus corporate jets in total.

“Airbus and Comlux have both made a business out of setting new standards, of which the ACJ320neo and our growing fleet of them are the latest examples,” said Comlux Chairman and CEO Richard Gaona.

“We are already the largest customer for ACJ320neo Family aircraft, all powered by the new CFM International LEAP-1A engine. Together with our extensive outfitting experience, plus four NEO cabins booked for completion at our centre in Indianapolis, we are in a leading position.”

The ACJ320neo, which completed its first flight last year and first delivery this January, is derived from the Airbus A320neo aircraft family, which has received a total of 15 orders and commitments to date.

“Time-saving comfort and aircraft availability are vital in the corporate jet world, and our airliner heritage enables us to deliver more of these with the ACJ320neo Family than anyone else plus the benefit of unbeatable life-cycle costs,” said ACJ President Benoit Defforge.
