Comlux has become the first operator to retrofit an Airbus ACJ319 with Sharklets. The work was carried out by TAP Maintenance and Engineering and is the first retrofit of the performance enhancing devices on any variant of the A319.
“Comlux has always been a leader in Airbus corporate jets, and our Sharklet retrofit highlights our innovative approach to offering customers one of the world’s most modern and handsome corporate jet fleets,” says Comlux Chairman and CEO Richard Gaona.
Airbus claims Sharklets provide up to 4% fuel saving as well as an improvement in range. The devices are standard fit on all A320neo Family aircraft and can be retrofitted to A320ceo family jets from c/n 1200 onwards.
Airbus Corporate Jets Managing Director Benoit Defforge, added: “Airbus has a reputation for innovative solutions and long-term relationships in the airliner world, so it’s great to have the opportunity to echo that with this one with Sharklets in corporate jets, with a leader such as Comlux.”
