Jet Aviation's Basel MRO facility is now approved for heavy maintenance on the Boeing 777 up to and including 15 year checks. The work scope extension required the company to invest in additional specialised tools and training for the Boeing 777 and was approved in late 2022.
“This extension of our work scope for the Boeing 777 in Basel is a fantastic achievement and cements our position as one of the leading global maintenance providers for wide and narrow-body business aircraft,” says vice president MRO Europe and general manager Basel Cyril Martiniere. “The application was in response to increasing market demand for these capabilities in Basel and demonstrates our commitment to investing in our growth in line with the needs of our customer. The Boeing 777 is an important platform, and we are delighted to be able to offer heavy maintenance on this aircraft to our customers across the region and beyond. I look forward to welcoming more 777s to Basel in the future.”
Jet Aviation Basel holds maintenance approval for over 50 aircraft types and is an authorised service centre for Airbus Corporate Jets, Boeing Business Jets, Gulfstream and Embraer. The facility comprises six hangars totalling over 36,700 sqm, with an additional 13,500 sqm of workshops, and can accommodate aircraft up to Airbus 380 and Boeing 747.
“As one of the largest and most experienced business jet maintenance providers in the world, we are proud to be able to offer our customers a wide array of services from heavy base maintenance to refurbishment or system upgrades, as well as line maintenance, aftermarket services and AOG,” says SVP regional operations EMEA Jeremie Caillet. “Maintenance is one of our core businesses in EMEA, and this scope extension is a further example of our continued commitment to meet the evolving requirements of customers across our network.”
