Bombardier has agreed to establish a new line maintenance station in Dubai with FBO operator Jetex, the Canadian airframer announced today. Its ninth line maintenance station will initially provide unscheduled maintenance but work toward offering scheduled maintenance in the coming months. Supporting the Dubai station are technicians certified for all of Bombardier’s Challenger and Global business jets, including its newest Global 7500.
“This expansion is an integral part of our overall mission to enhance OEM support for our operators in the Middle East—and we are very pleased to be working with highly respected business aviation leader Jetex in the development of this project,” said Bombardier Business Aircraft v-p and general manager of customer experience Jean-Christophe Gallagher. “As a part of our commitment to offering an exceptional customer experience, we are delighted to offer our customers expanded support, more resources, and increased flexibility closer to their base of operations.”
Jetex president and CEO Adel Mardini added that the service expansion in Dubai is a “significant boon” for his company’s customers that use its FBO network around the globe.
