December 2014 – Comlux America signs first Wide Body completion
Comlux America, the Completion and Services center of the Comlux Group based in Indianapolis IN, is pleased to announce the signing of their first wide body completion. The aircraft, an Airbus A330, is scheduled to input in September of 2015 to be outfitted with a full VIP interior.
Since 2009, Comlux has already completed several narrow body completions including ACJ319, ACJ320, ACJ321, BBJ, BBJ3, and B757. They have consistently demonstrated an ability to deliver on time the most customized and innovative interiors to their VIP customers. This aircraft represents the 9th interior completion for Comlux America overall and the 1st wide body completion.
In order to house the aircraft and future wide body programs, Comlux America has launched the construction of an extension to the current hangar facility. The expansion will increase the total size from 128,000 sq. ft. (11,900 sq. m) to 157,000 sq. ft. (14,600 sq. m), allowing the facility to accommodate one wide body – up to 747-8 size – and six narrow body aircraft simultaneously.
“This wide body aircraft is the start of a new era in the development of Comlux America. We are now capable of offering completion and service work on the complete range of VIP aircraft and attract the owners of wide body aircraft, particularly present here in the Middle East.” says Jim Soleo, Comlux America’s CEO “Our team is excited by this new challenge and fully committed to deliver our first wide body with the best quality and on time.”
Comlux America located in Indianapolis, Indiana is part of Comlux, The Aviation Group, a leading provider of worldwide VIP aviation services that includes aircraft management, VIP charter, aircraft sales and acquisitions, aircraft cabin designs and completions, aircraft engineering services, aircraft maintenance, and avionics design and integration.
