Jet Aviation Basel has expanded its maintenance capabilities, adding the B787 to its capability list following recent receipt of EASA Part 145 approval. With this approval the company is authorized to provide warranty maintenance and completions support to the new all-carbon airframe. The company was awarded a BBJ 787-9 completion contract in May 2015.
“We have allocated considerable time and resources the past few years to advancing our capabilities with the new aviation technologies of the Boeing 787,” said Neil Boyle, senior vice president and general manager of the Jet Aviation Basel completions center. “I am very pleased to have our skills and competencies recognized by the regulatory authorities as we prepare to complete our first VVIP Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.”
