The Russian Federation Civil Aviation Administration has approved Jet Aviation Geneva for line and base maintenance of Bombardier Global Express series, Gulfstream, and BBJ aircraft registered in Russia, the company announced today at NBAA VBACE.

“Russia has a significant fleet of private aircraft and we are delighted to receive this important approval from the Russian civil aviation authority,” said Edgar Guerreiro, Jet Aviation Geneva general manager and senior director of MRO and FBO. “This authorization provides Russian owners and operators the comfort and security of knowing our team of dedicated maintenance professionals is here for them when they fly through the region. We look forward to welcoming them to our facility in Geneva.”

Jet Aviation Geneva was established in 1969—just two years after the company’s founding—from the acquisition of ground-handling and maintenance operations from Swiss airframer Pilatus. Today, the subsidiary of General Dynamics employs 4,000 people and operates FBOs and MROs from 50 facilities in Europe, the Middle East, Asia-Pacific, North America, and the Caribbean.
