October 2014 – Comlux America completes two new VIP cabins for customers based in Asia
Comlux America, the Completion and Services center of the Comlux Group based in Indianapolis IN, has had a very busy year in 2014. The company signed two major contracts – one green completion on ACJ320 and one BBJ major refurbishment for a Chinese customer – and delivered two high-end VIP interiors – one BBJ for an Asian customer and one ACJ321 for a customer based in Central Asia.
These two deliveries represent the 7th and 8th green interior completions overall for Comlux America, since becoming authorized as a service center for both Airbus and Boeing in 2010.
The VIP interior of the BBJ features ultra-modern custom electric POD seats provided by Iacobucci as well as a state of the art entertainment system. The cabin has four different configurations which convert lounges and offices to bedrooms and sleeping quarters.
The ACJ321 is the first of the type ever completed. This aircraft was given an extremely strict timeline for redelivery and it was not only delivered on time, but it also beat both the weight and sound targets, such as every ACJ/BBJ completed in Comlux America. Combined with the sharklets installation, the weight reduction allows an increase in the range performance of the aircraft by reducing its fuel burn.
“Since day one, we have provided excellent service to our customers by delivering the most modern and unique ACJ and BBJ cabin interiors while maintaining the highest level of quality. We have now firmly established ourselves as a major player in the completion industry worldwide.” says Jim Soleo, Comlux America’s CEO “The completions of these two aircraft, along with the signing of the two contracts this year, once again demonstrate the continued growth of our reputation in Asia. Our commercial office established in Hong Kong in 2012 allows us to further develop our relationship with our key customers and to fully understand their unique needs.”
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.
