The operation of the large-scale maintenance hangar has been agreed between ExecuJet Haite and Capital Airport Holding Business Aviation Management (CBM). The 5,000m² MRO facility – which is already built – is located within the airport’s business aviation area, some 300,000m².
ExecuJet Haite’s MRO facility at Beijing Daxing International Airport will support various OEMs and aircraft types under Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) and certifications from overseas national aviation authorities as it currently does at its Tianjin MRO facility. ExecuJet Haite in Tianjin is certified by the CAAC, European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). It is also certified by the authorities of Cayman Islands, Bermuda, Aruba, etc.
“The infrastructure at Beijing Daxing International Airport is second to none, and we are absolutely delighted to immediately start supporting business aircraft at the airport and working cooperatively with CBM to create a world-class business aviation hub and destination,” said Paul Desgrosseilliers, general manager of ExecuJet Haite.
A large proportion of the 300,000m² business aviation centre is used for FBO and FBO-related activities. There is a 11,000m² FBO building; an area for business jet ramp parking; and five other 5,000m² hangars, all dedicated to aircraft parking.
“This new agreement will bring the combined FBO and MRO business aviation expertise of both companies together to work in unison towards the further development of China’s business aviation market and specifically enhance maintenance services and support at Beijing Daxing International Airport to the benefit of both of our shared customers,” said Li Yingyong, general manager of CBM.
CBM already provides FBO services to business jets and travellers at Beijing Daxing International Airport and Beijing Capital International Airport and will work in alliance with ExecuJet Haite, a leader in MRO activities in Greater China, to further develop Beijing Daxing International Airport as a leading business jet base and entry point into the dynamic Chinese market.
