ExecuJet MRO Services is nearing completion of a new business aviation MRO centre in Dubai that will be able to house 18-24 business jets at one time. The facility has been intentionally sized to handle the very largest business jets, including the Dassault Falcon 6X and 10X, as well as other large jets from other OEMs. The company expects to open the facility in the third quarter.

“The large hangar doors have been installed, which is an important milestone as it shows the construction phase is nearing completion,” says regional VP Middle East Nick Weber. “Dubai is a hub for so much global traffic that it merited a large investment in MRO capacity and expertise.”

The new 163,000 sq ft MRO facility at Dubai's Al Maktoum International airport includes a hangar as well as adjacent workshops and offices. This will also become ExecuJet's new regional headquarters in Dubai. The company will be moving base maintenance from Dubai International airport, although it will retain AOG capability there. ExecuJet commenced operations in Dubai more than 20 years ago and is approved to work on various aircraft types spanning several OEM platforms.

The Dassault Aviation-owned company is a factory service centre for all in-production Dassault Falcon aircraft. It also provides line and base maintenance for Bombardier, Embraer Executive Jets and nearly all types of Hawker business jets.
