Dallas delivers debutant completed Gulfstream G600
Gulfstream's wider growth strategy will see the opening of a new service centre at Fort Worth Alliance Airport in Texas later this year, hot on the heels of the new centre in Mesa, Arizona.
Each cabin is custom-made by Gulfstream artisans who handcraft the cabinetry, furnishings and finishes.

Gulfstream has delivered the first Gulfstream G600 to be outfitted at its Dallas, Texas, facility. In response to growing demand, Gulfstream expanded completions operations to the Dallas facility in June last year.

The addition of G600 completions in Dallas is a component of Gulfstream's wider growth strategy, which includes Gulfstream Customer Support's expansion to Fort Worth Alliance Airport in Texas with an all-new, modern and sustainable service centre, set to open later this year. Gulfstream Customer Support also recently announced a new service centre in Mesa, Arizona, to support customers operating in and through the U.S. West Coast.

In addition to Dallas, Gulfstream outfits large-cabin interiors in Savannah, Georgia and Appleton, Wisconsin. Completions for the super-midsize Gulfstream G280 are also performed at the Dallas facility.

“We are seeing tremendous demand for our next-generation aircraft,” says Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Expanding G600 completions to Dallas is positioning us well for the future as we prepare for G700 entry into service, continued G500 and G600 in-service fleet growth and the interest we are seeing in the recently announced G400 and G800.”

The G600 can be configured in four living areas for up to 19 passengers or three living areas with a crew compartment for up to 13 passengers, and customers can also choose from a forward or aft galley configuration. The interior features award-winning seat designs, best-in-class cabin altitude, 100% fresh purified air, whisper-quiet noise levels and 14 Gulfstream panoramic oval windows, the largest in the industry. Each cabin is custom-made by Gulfstream artisans who handcraft the cabinetry, furnishings and finishes.

“Our award-winning bespoke interiors and the individuals who create and install them are the best in the business. In fact, we have received direct feedback from this newest G600 customer citing an 'outstanding' experience, and I'm excited for our customers to experience the unparalleled quality and excellence produced by the world-class team at our Dallas facility,” adds Burns.
