Comlux has completed modification work to its ACJ 319 Airbus corporate jet, with the fittment to the aircraft with Sharklets.
The sharklets give the aircraft a fuel savings of up to 4% and a corresponding range improvement by providing better wing aero performance; reducing drag and saving fuel.
The retrofit was performed by Tap Maintenance and Engineering as part of the first turnkey project managed by Airbus Corporate Jets. It also is the first on any version of the A319 aircraft.
The ACJ 319 has become the first to recieve the retrofit.
“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 offer Sharklets as an option on all A320 Family aircraft produced in recent years, and are standard fit on all A320neo (New Engine Option) Family aircraft. Sharklets can also be retrofitted to existing A320 Family aircraft, from Manufacturer’s Serial Number 1200 onward.
