China Eastern Airlines Executive Air (CEAEA) signed an agreement with Metrojet of Hong Kong under which the latter will provide exclusive maintenance and service support for the operation. The agreement covers training, inspection and heavy maintenance service support to CEAEA’s 13-aircraft fleet, which includes types made by Gulfstream, Embraer, Cessna, Hawker and Bombardier.
The agreement with CEAEA “is a testament to our growing stature in the Asian business aviation industry and highlights our strength in aircraft maintenance services,” said Metrojet CEO Björn Näf.
In addition to maintenance and inspections support, Metrojet will also provide CEAEA engineers with technical training at Metrojet’s facilities.
The announcement follows Metrojet’s recent expansion in the rapidly growing Chinese business aviation market with a new MRO facility at Zhuhai Airport in partnership with Zhuhai Hanxing General Aviation. Also as part of an international expansion program, Metrojet has opened a maintenance facility, Metrojet Engineering Clark, within the Clark Freeport Zone in the Philippines, and established a joint venture with India-based Taj Air to establish Taj Air Metrojet Aviation in Mumbai, offering maintenance services to the growing Indian business aviation market.
