Under an agreement signed last month with Swiss International Air Lines and airport authorities, Jet Aviation Basel has moved into the Crossair hangar in Basel. The 53,000-sq-ft hangar brings the company’s total hangar space to 215,000 sq ft.

“We are happy we found a solution to handle the growing number of aircraft at our facility. Currently, we have more than 30 aircraft–including Learjets, Falcons, Challengers, Gulfstreams, BBJs, ACJs and Boeing 727s to 747-400s–on any given day for maintenance, completions and exterior painting,” said Rainer Albecker, senior vice president and general manager.

Jet Aviation Basel has more than 1,000 employees dedicated to completions, including in-house design and engineering, cabinetry, upholstery, fiberglass and paint. The company has the capacity to work on aircraft as large as the Airbus A380 and Boeing 747-400 series and has already outfitted several Airbus 319ACJs, A320s and Boeing 737s, 757s and 767s. Jet Aviation Basel is a factory-approved service center for Gulfstreams, Challengers, Learjets and Falcons and is listed in Boeing’s contract maintenance service manual.
