Super Luxury BizAv In Demand
While much of the business aviation market continues to suffer, the super luxury segment is all but impervious to economic woes and public relations problems and Fly Comlux is investing heavily to solidify its place in that market. The company announced at EBACE that it's adding six big aircraft to its fleet including a 767ER Boeing Business Jet. "With the arrival of the 767BBJ beginning of autumn 2010, we will better serve our Head of State and Royal Families customers," said Comlux President Richard Gaona. "Together with our six Airbus we will confirm our position as the largest operator of VIP charter wide body aircraft and we can offer aircraft management solutions to any customer." The 767 will be configured for about 70 people.
The company also announced the addition of two Bombardier Global Express XRS aircraft, a Challenger 605, an Airbus A318 and an A320. Company CEO Stephen Laven says the lavish and long-legged aircraft are just what his customers want. "This niche market is very specific and demanding," he said.
