MEBA2012: Comlux show off the big one

Posted 13 December 2012 · Add Comment

Comlux Aviation has brought the largest business jet ever displayed at MEBA to the show.

Comlux CEO Richard Gaona The Swiss-based aviation services group is displaying a Boeing 767 on the static park. CEO Richard Gaona (pictured) said: “Most of these aircraft are privately owned, so it is very unusual to see a 767 available for charter.”
 
Comlux has its main Middle East base in Bahrain, which is home to the 767, an Airbus ACJ320 and an ACJ319.
 
Gaona, the former Airbus Corporate Jets boss who sold the first (and only) VIP Airbus A380 to Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, is now coming to the end of his first five years at Comlux.
 
“I had gone as far as I could go with Airbus and wanted to offer customers something more,” he said.
 
To that end, Comlux now helps customers buy and sell aircraft, complete or refit their jets, and operate them under management.
 
Back in September, Comlux America opened a third 129,000sqft hangar at its completions, engineering and maintenance facility in Indianapolis.
 
The company outfits Airbus, Boeing and Bombardier types and its completions capabilities on site include cabinetry and workshops for sheet metal, avionics, upholstery and finishing. There is also an interior-design department in Indianapolis, as well as departments for engineering, certification, technical publications, document control procurement and programme management.
