Jet Aviation delivers first BBJ 777 maintenance project in Basel


A client in the Middle East tasked Jet Aviation’s MRO facility in Basel, Switzerland, with its first BBJ 777-200 maintenance project. The wide-body aircraft was redelivered to the client a day early, on December 24, 2016.

“There was just one week between receiving the request and the aircraft’s arrival, and the entire team is fully prepared and very excited about the project,” said Estelle Thorin, Jet Aviation’s director of maintenance for large aircraft in Basel.

“As a factory approved service center for Boeing Business Jets, customers value our commitment to the highest business aviation standards,” said Johannes Turzer, senior vice president and general manager of the Basel facility. “We are delighted to welcome this customer back and look forward to supporting more B777 maintenance and refurbishment inputs in 2017.”
