Five’s new luxury aircraft will transport guests in enviable style with a host of onboard facilities
Dubai-based hospitality group, Five Hotels & Resorts has announced the purchase of an ACJ TwoTwenty private jet from the Comlux Group in Switzerland.
From January 2022, Comlux Completion in Indianapolis will begin building the interior of the VIP cabin, as selected by Five from the multiple cabin arrangement options that the ACJ TwoTwenty offers.
Five’s ACJ TwoTwenty jet will be equipped with 16 seats, a dining table for eight passengers, a master suite with a king-sized bed and shower, electro-chromatic window shades, LED lighting, a fully equipped kitchen, non-stop streaming high-speed connectivity and two ultra-large 55-inch screens. Guests will be able to experience the onboard facilities for up to 12 hours non-stop with a full crew on board.
With this new offering, Five aims to offer its customers with a journey that blends cuisine from its homegrown venues – including The Penthouse, Maiden Shanghai, Cinque and Soul Street – with music from FIVE’s in-house DJs in a bespoke setting in the sky.
Commenting on the announcement, Five founder and chairman Kabir Mulchandani said: “I’m extremely pleased with the purchase of the ACJ TwoTwenty. It is a key milestone in the development of Five’s offerings to our discerning global clientele.
“Thanks to Comlux’s know-how in engineering VIP interiors and customised air travel, Five can seamlessly curate an exclusive and luxurious lifestyle experience both on the ground and in the air.”
Comlux executive chairman and CEO Richard Gaona added: “With our substantial fleet of large-cabin, long-range VIP aircraft, Comlux has positioned itself as a leading provider of luxurious group travel. It’s an honour to partner with Five on their thrilling new project, from aircraft acquisition to cabin interior completion, as well as aircraft operations.
“The all-new business jet will be available from early 2023 for guests, charters and demo flights, and will be based at Dubai World Central (DWC) airport.”
Comlux Aviation will operate the jet, registered under the name 9H-FIVE (pronounced Nine-Hotel-Five), through an exclusive charter agreement under Comlux AOC in Malta.
