Gulfstream Aerospace has named the Dubai, UAE, Jet Aviation maintenance center an authorized warranty repair facility for large-cabin aircraft. The addition of the Dubai facility is a result of a new agreement signed recently by Gulfstream that also renews five of Jet Aviation’s business-jet maintenance centers: Basel and Geneva, Switzerland; Hannover, Germany; Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; and Singapore.

The Gulfstream Aerospace Service Center at London-Luton Airport has received official approval from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to perform maintenance work on the G450. The UK-based service center also received approval from the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department (HKCAD) to perform maintenance on Hong Kong-registered G550s. The HKCAD is expected to approve work on the G450 later this year.

Operators of G450s registered in European Union countries, as well as operators of G550s registered in Hong Kong, can now take their aircraft to Gulfstream’s Luton Service Center for regular scheduled maintenance and inspections and warranty work.
