Jet Aviation has expanded its maintenance, interior refurbishment, NDT and borescope capabilities at its Dubai International airport facility. The company has also expanded line maintenance and on-site support services in the region.

Modular tail docking capability has been added to the base maintenance hangar to allow more efficient heavy structural repairs on large cabin aircraft, while refurbishment capability, including full-cabin refurbishment, has been extended with the addition of avionic modifications and upgrades, such as high speed internet.

“We are committed to providing an effortless experience for all of our customers,” says vice president regional operations Middle East and general manager Dubai Hardy Bütschi. “Part of this is growing and developing our capabilities and expertise to meet the evolving requirements of customers in and visiting the region. Over the past year we have seen more requests for larger cabin refurbishment, structural repair projects, avionic modifications and upgrades at our fixed wing maintenance site in Dubai and have adapted and expanded our capabilities to match. I am extremely proud of the team for this continued commitment to going above and beyond for our customers across all of our maintenance services, whether base maintenance or heavy refurbishment, an AOG in a remote location or even customised on-site fleet support.”

To support increasing volumes of NDT inspections for both maintenance and pre-purchase inspection (PPI) requests the facility has also introduced improved techniques and equipment to cover eddy current and ultrasonic inspections, as well as expanding on-site borescope capabilities both in-house and with OEM partners in the region.

Jet Aviation has also extended line maintenance capabilities in the region into Al Bateen airport in Abu Dhabi and on demand services into Abu Dhabi International airport. Further line maintenance expansion is expected in Saudi Arabia for 2023.

“The Middle East is a key strategic hub in our network, and we are committed to supporting the growth of business aviation across the region,” says SVP regional operations EMEA Jeremie Caillet. “We have been operating in the Middle East for over 40 years, and our deep-rooted understanding and close relationships with our customers allow us to anticipate their needs and evolve our own capabilities to ensure we are ready to seamlessly support them today and in the future.”
