Benoit Defforge, ACJ President commented on the delivery of the first Airbus ACJ TwoTwenty: “With its stunning design, spacious two times larger cabin than a typical business jet, and state-of-the-art technology including unparalleled on-board connectivity, the ACJ TwoTwenty sets a new standard in long-haul business travel.”

FIVE Hotels & Resorts
FIVE Hotels & Resorts is one of the most sought-after destinations in Dubai. Its flagship resort: the FIVE Palm Jumeirah offers an unrivaled luxury holiday experience for high-rolling guests to endure.
The new charter jet of Fly Five joins the League of Hotels with an aviation arm. This includes the iconic all-black A321 of Titan Airways operated by Four Seasons Hotel.
With FIVE Hotels & Resorts having a large footprint in Zurich and Dubai, guests can travel between the two places with the ACJ TwoTwenty. Apart from performing the shuttle between the Swiss city and Dubai, Fly FIVE’s ACJ can also be used for charter to absorb the operational costs, which makes it a perfect business case.
A new trend?
Will we see more luxurious chain hotels establishing private aviation arms? Four Seasons and FIVE Resorts & Hotels are now leading the way.
