Another Boeing BBJ2 is slated for completion at Jet Aviation Basel, following the signing of a new contract with an undisclosed client. Jet Aviation (Stand 7060), founded in Switzerland in 1967 and now a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics, has completed more than 30 wide- and narrowbody jets during the past 15 years.
“Interest in customized completions of both widebody and narrowbody aircraft continues to be high,” said Eugen Hartl, vice president of sales, market development and customer service for the completions business unit. Due for re-delivery this year are a Boeing 747-400 and 757-200 and two Airbus A340s and one A319.
As part of its product life-cycle management strategy, Jet Aviation Basel has been developing its core processes, according to Hartl. It has launched new technologies such as Catia V5 and Enovia Smarteam, a collaborative engineering system, both products offered by Dassault Systemes.
