Airbus Corporate Jets has collaborated with renowned contemporary artist Cyril Kongo—known as “Mr. Colorful”—on a special-edition cabin for the ACJ TwoTwenty. The bizliner cabin was configured by the ACJ design team for comfort and functionality, while Kongo’s touch turned the cabin into a “flying contemporary art gallery.”

Notably, the main lounge will be partly hand-painted by Kongo and also combine textures and fabrics “to kindle the sumptuous comfort, space, and luxury of your own private art gallery.” According to Airbus, the special-edition cabin will allow passengers to rest or enjoy fine dining for up to eight people while admiring the colorful interior. Comlux is the exclusive completion partner for the first 15 ACJ TwoTwentys.

The bizliner offers 785 sq ft of floor space, providing six large VIP living areas that can carry up to 19 passengers. Launched late last year, the ACJ TwoTwenty has already racked up orders for six aircraft. Comlux will take delivery of the first one early next year with service entry pegged for early 2023 following completion.
