Associated Air Center Delivers 9th Luxury Airbus Corporate Jet

Dubai, U.A.E. — Associated Air Center (AAC), a business unit of Landmark Aviation, a Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) Enterprise company operating at Dallas Love Field (DAL), today announced the delivery of an Airbus Corporate Jet (ACJ) VIP interior – its 9th luxury jet delivery in the ACJ program, with four more in backlog.

“This luxury aircraft has been designed for the owner’s business and personal use,” said Patrick Altuna, Executive Vice President, Sales. “The VIP interior is of a contemporary design and features rich wood veneers, plush seating and carpeting throughout, in soft and complimentary colors.”

The aircraft features a spacious master bedroom and master lavatory with shower and ample storage closets. A pair of mid aircraft guest lavatories are also featured. Unique features include a family room equipped with a wrap-around sofa that seats seven or sleeps three. Other sofas in the aircraft provide additional seating as well as sleeping positions. Two high-low tables that seat four each can be joined with a leaf, so the table stretches across the mid section of the aircraft. It can be used for dining and also as a conference table.

Hand finished wood veneers on cabinetry throughout the aircraft give the interior a stylish, polished finish.

The aircraft has a full cabin management system, reflecting the aircraft’s functionality as an office in the sky. The cabin systems include entertainment, games, and wireless communications. AAC interior designers and engineers worked closely with the aircraft owner, who is based in India, to develop an interior that offers many amenities.

AAC became an Airbus ACJ Authorized Completions Center in 2003. The operation is an approved ACJ Service Center and in 2005 successfully completed the first five-year C-check for a head-of-state ACJ.

AAC offers a full range of design and luxurious completion options for transport class aircraft.

AAC professionals work with customers from original concept through the design of the floor plan to selection of fabric, furniture and fixture fabrication, and the integration of cabin and cockpit systems including audio/visual equipment, business computers, facsimile machines, voice scramblers and security components.
