Embraer has appointed Jet Aviation Basel as a fully authorized service center for the Legacy 600 and 650, allowing it to provide line and base maintenance for the super midsized business jets.

“We can now provide any kind of maintenance, exterior painting and IFE upgrades, as well as warranty and AOG support, to the growing Embraer customer base in EMEA,” said Johannes Turzer, v-p and general manager of the maintenance center at Jet Aviation Basel.

“While expanding our global footprint and services, we seek partners with similar business philosophies,” added Pedro Paiva, Embraer Executive Jets v-p of customer and support services for Europe, Middle East and Africa. “Like Embraer, Jet Aviation is customer-focused and committed to excellence.”

Separately, Jet Aviation Basel in April started its first-ever 96-month inspection on a Legacy 600. The aircraft belongs to Prague-based aircraft management and charter group Grossmann Jet Service, a new customer for Jet Aviation Basel. Under the contract, the FBO will provide exclusive maintenance support for Grossman’s Legacy 600 and Gulfstream G550. Grossman Jet Service now operates a Legacy 600 and a Hawker 900XP and plans to add a G550 this year.
