ExecuJet MRO Services has reported it is near completion on the construction of a new business aviation MRO in Dubai, UAE. The facility is designed to accommodate 18-24 business jets simultaneously.
The facility was intentionally sized to handle the very largest business jets, including the Falcon 6X and Falcon 10X, as well as other large jets from other OEMs. Management expects to open the facility in the third quarter of 2022.
“The large hangar doors have been installed, an important milestone as it shows the construction phase is nearing completion,” said Nick Weber, regional vice president, Middle East, at ExecuJet MRO Services. “Dubai is a hub for so much global traffic that it merited a large investment in MRO capacity and expertise.”
The new 15,000m² (163,000ft²) MRO facility at Dubai’s Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC) includes a hangar as well as adjacent workshops and offices. The facility will also become ExecuJet’s new regional headquarters in Dubai.
The company will be moving base maintenance to DWC from Dubai International Airport (DXB), although it will retain AOG capability at DXB. ExecuJet commenced operations in Dubai more than 20 years ago and is approved to work on various aircraft types spanning several OEM platforms.
The company, which is owned by Dassault Aviation, is a factory service centre for all in-production Dassault Falcon aircraft. It also provides line and base maintenance for Bombardier types, Embraer executive jets and nearly all types of Hawker business jets.
