An Airbus Just for You

  • Mary Grady

Comlux, a charter company based in Zurich, unveiled its latest custom-fitted ultra-luxury jet, an Airbus A320 Prestige. The 200-seat airliner has been reconfigured to hold just 19 passengers. The unique cabin features two galleys, a lounge area with an L-shaped divan, a six-seat dining table, and a private compartment that can be used either as a lounge area or a bedroom. Top-quality, exclusive materials were used throughout, with a natural color palette that echoes the sand and sky of the desert. The airplane will be available for VVIP charters from its base in Bahrain. Comlux operates a fleet of 18 aircraft, featuring Bombardier and Challenger models as well as a range of Airbus jets.
