Dubai-based aerospace platform Mohammed Bin Rashid Aerospace Hub (MBRAH) has signed an agreement with French aircraft sealing and painting group Satys to develop a 33,000 sq ft paint hangar at Al Maktoum International airport, fitted out with the latest technology. The signing ceremony was attended by MBRAH CEO Tahnoon Saif and Satys business development deputy director Frederic Seguy.
Construction of the new hangar will commence this year and is expected to conclude by Q3 2023. Once complete, Satys will provide private jet and narrow-body aircraft painting.
“We are pleased to sign this agreement with Satys, a global name in the industry that will provide the best painting capabilities and offer optimised services to our discerning customers worldwide," says Saif. "This partnership confirms the recovery of the aviation sector and the high demand for general aviation services. It also underlines our position in attracting the top global players in the aviation sector to establish their presence in the emirate and operate in an integrated, economic environment, where they can connect with international markets. We will spare no effort to solidify and cement Dubai's position on the world aviation map.”
Satys ceo Christophe Cador adds: “This new partnership with MBRAH will enable us to expand our existing global presence from the 13 countries we currently operate from. We are pleased to provide our extensive and unique services to customers from across the region and then limit ferry flights and the impact on the environmental footprint.”
MBRAH offers global aerospace players high-level connectivity and is a free-zone destination for the world's leading airlines, private jet companies, MROs and associated industries. Located in and developed by Dubai South, MBRAH is also home to maintenance centres and training and education campuses. It seeks to strengthen engineering industries to foster the emirate's vision of becoming a leading aviation hub.
