ExecuJet marks milestone at Dubai Airshow

ExecuJet Middle East is highlighting its full aviation services at the 2015 Dubai Airshow, which gets under way today in Dubai, UAE.

Part of the ExecuJet Aviation Group, ExecuJet Middle East is celebrating 16 years in the region, coupled with 10 years of MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) operations.

The Swiss-headquartered ExecuJet is a Bombardier authorised service facility, which has been awarded Best Overall Maintenance Facility two years in a row and best International Maintenance Facility now for the fifth consecutive year. 

It specialises in the maintenance of Bombardier, Embraer and Hawker business jets for which it holds OEM authorisations. Currently the Part 145 maintenance organisation supports approvals from 22 different national aviation's authorities including the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and recently obtained US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) under Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) 145. 

Mike Berry, Executive VP, ExecuJet Middle East, says: "We've grown tremendously. The ExecuJet entity in the Middle East began in 1999 with just a couple of managed aircraft, but it now employs over 345 people and runs state-of-the-art MRO and FBO (fixed base operation) facilities at Dubai International Airport and Dubai South. We’ve also expanded our FBO network into Riyadh and Istanbul, making a total of four in the region.

“We are especially pleased to participate at the Dubai Air Show, as we celebrate 16 years in the Middle East. The show is a great opportunity to network and promote our full aviation services in the region, and given the central location of the UAE on the world map, we hope to meet plenty of business people from other regions too.”

The ExecuJet Aviation Group is a leading global business aviation organisation offering a diverse range of services including aircraft management for private and commercial registered aircraft, aircraft charter, aircraft maintenance, aircraft completions management and fixed base operations.

Headquartered in Zürich, Switzerland, ExecuJet has operations in six regions – Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East, embracing a workforce of over 1,000 experienced staff.

The ExecuJet Aviation Group manages 165 business jets worldwide under the most stringent safety standards. Its commercial fleet is operated under the regulatory umbrella of seven regional civil aviation issued air operating certificates (AOCs). ExecuJet has many authorised maintenance facilities throughout four regions, certified to work on most business jets. The ExecuJet Aviationn Group operates 19 world-class FBO facilities worldwide.

The 2015 Dubai Airshow runs from today until November 12 at a purpose-built site in Dubai South, where Al Maktoum International Airport is also located.
