Comlux First to Retrofit ACJ319 with Sharklets

Comlux has become the first to retrofit an Airbus corporate jet, an ACJ319, with Sharklets.

The retrofit, carried out by TAP Maintenance and Engineering as part of the first such turnkey-project managed by Airbus Corporate Jets, is also the first on any version of the A319 airliner.

Comlux has always been a leader in Airbus corporate jets, and our Sharklet retrofit highlights our innovative approach to offering customers one of the worlds most modern and handsome corporate jet fleets, said Comlux Chairman and CEO Richard Gaona.

Sharklets act as a barrier to the flow of air around an aircrafts wingtips. They reduce drag to save up to 4% of fuel with a corresponding range improvement. Sharklets have been offered 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 Manufacturers Serial Number 1200 onward.

More than 180 Airbus corporate jets are in service around the world.
