ExecuJet MRO Services expects to open a new business aviation MRO center in Dubai by the third quarter of this year, the company announced this week. The 15,000-sq-m (163,000-sq-ft) facility is designed to accommodate 18 to 24 business jets at a time, including the Dassault Falcon 6X and 10X as well as other large-cabin business jets.
Located at Al Maktoum International Airport, the new facility also will serve as ExecuJet’s regional headquarters in Dubai. It replaces the base maintenance offered by ExecuJet at Dubai International Airport, although that location will continue to offer AOG services. For more than 20 years ExecuJet has provided maintenance services in Dubai.
“The large hangar doors have been installed, an important milestone as it shows the construction phase is nearing completion,” said Nick Weber, Execujet MRO Services regional v-p for the Middle East. “Dubai is a hub for so much global traffic that it merited a large investment in MRO capacity and expertise.”
The Dassault Aviation-owned company is a factory service center for in-production Falcon aircraft and provides line and base maintenance for Bombardier, Embraer Executive Jets, and most Hawker business jets.
