Comlux has delivered the world’s first ACJ TwoTwenty with a brand-new cabin certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to FIVE Hotels and Resorts. The VIP cabin was completed in 14 months, obtaining a full EASA certification. The aircraft operated by Comlux is now available for charter while based in Dubai, UAE.
The ACJ TwoTwenty is a dare-to-be-different jet equipped with a cabin that has been engineered and designed to be the first of its kind. The spacious cabin boasts all the conveniences of modern luxury living but in the sky.
Installed throughout the cabin, smart technology touchscreens provide all the comfort and conveniences right at your fingertips. The electro-chromatic window shades offer passengers unparalleled panoramic views of the world below, and full LED lighting is installed to perfectly customize the look and feel of the cabin, hour to hour and mile to mile, to the passengers’ liking and unique tastes.
The primary suite has been transformed to embrace a serene setting with a king-sized bed and spa-like shower for the ultimate experience in luxurious travel. Finally, the cabin features two ultra-large 55-inch screens, giving passengers entertainment that could rival in-home theatre experiences.
Powered by Pratt & Whitney engines, the aircraft promises a remarkable range of 5,650nm (10,500 km) and a maximum speed of Mach 0.82 (629 mph). In addition, the next generation aircraft burns significantly less fuel, up to 25%, compared to previous models, with a considerable reduction in noise levels as well. The clean sheet design uses advanced materials and fly-by-wire, offers outstanding connectivity, lower operating costs, and unrivaled reliability.
“This aircraft is a spectacular new chapter for FIVE,” said Aloki Batra, CEO of FIVE Hospitality. “A world-famous frontrunner in entertainment-driven hospitality, FIVE now expands its’ award-winning portfolio to include a FIVE-styled experience that extends the unique and matchless ‘Vibe at FIVE’ from our hotels on-ground to a luxe immersive experience amongst the clouds. “We will now be able to offer a flawless and bespoke experience by establishing the next level in private aviation. Fly FIVE is FIVE Hotel and Resort’s newest home in the skies – and we are excited to welcome our guests on board!”
“With its stunning design, spacious two times larger cabin than a typical business jet, and state-of-the-art technology including unparalleled on-board connectivity, the ACJ TwoTwenty sets a new standard in long-haul business travel. We are immensely proud to see this game-changing aircraft complete, offering unbeatable operational efficiency and unmatched comfort. I have no doubt that it will be embraced by its users and raise the bar in the business jet market.” said Benoit Defforge, ACJ President.
