Comlux orders two BBJ MAX 8 jets

Swiss-based VIP charter operator Comlux is to buy two BBJ MAX 8 jets.

The news came as the three-day Middle East Business Aviation (MEBA) show opened in Dubai, UAE.

This marks Comlux’s first Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) order.

“The two BBJ MAX 8s are a great addition to the Comlux fleet because they give our customers the flexibility to fly farther and more comfortably thanks to the lower cabin altitude,” said Richard Gaona, President and CEO, Comlux, The Aviation Group.

“The long-range capability of the BBJ MAX 8 is critical to all of our customers, but especially our Middle East customers who often use Comlux aircraft for long-haul flights.”

The two BBJ MAX 8s will be outfitted with custom interiors at Comlux America, a certified BBJ completions centre.

“This announcement from a leading charter operator highlights the unmatched range, passenger comfort and baggage capability that BBJ products provide,” said Captain Steve Taylor, President, Boeing Business Jets.

“We are pleased to work with Comlux as they position their fleet for the future.”

MEBA is being held at the new Dubai Airshow site at Dubai World Central (DWC), which is billed as the world’s first ‘aerotropolis’ and includes the Al Maktoum International Airport.

As many as 420 exhibitors are taking part in the 2014 edition.
