Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) has worked with renowned contemporary artist Cyril Kongo, also known as Mr Colorful, on a special-edition cabin for the ACJ TwoTwenty.
ACJ noted that Kongo’s pioneering spirit perfectly complemented the ACJ team’s mindset, resulting in the aircraft being turned into a flying contemporary art gallery. The entire signature cabin has been envisioned by the ACJ design team to deliver comfort, connectivity and functionality in one space, with Kongo’s touch bringing the cabin design to “a next level of emotion”.
Notably, the main lounge, which will be partly hand-painted by Kongo, combines carefully chosen branded textures and fabrics to create a sense of sumptuous comfort, space and luxury; the owner’s own private art gallery.
The special cabin edition has been curated to allow passengers to properly rest or enjoy fine dining with friends and family, while admiring all the colours that life has to offer. Kongo and the ACJ design team took full advantage of the ACJ TwoTwenty’s large fuselage, which allows for a spaciously crafted table greeting, potentially serving up to eight guests. Comlux will be the exclusive completion partner for the first 15 aircraft.
The ACJ TwoTwenty will offer 73m² (785ft²) of floor space, with six large VIP living areas accommodating up to 19 passengers. The aircraft will have an intercontinental range, capable of flying up to 5,650 nautical miles (10,500km), which is over 12 hours flight time.
The ACJ TwoTwenty was launched in late 2020 and has already won orders for six aircraft. Comlux will be the first to take delivery of the ACJ TwoTwenty this winter and the first aircraft is due to enter service early in 2023.
