Jet Aviation cleared for A320 support in UAE
Jet Aviation Dubai has been approved by the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to support Airbus A320 series aircraft.
The company already holds FAA approval and is currently working to secure EASA approval.
This GCAA approval authorises Jet Aviation Dubai to support all Airbus A320 series aircraft registered in the UAE with line and base maintenance.
“Large Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJs) are very popular in the Middle East and we’re pleased to extend our support to these heavy iron aircraft, many of which we’re proud to note were completed at our Basel Completions Centre,” says Hardy Butschi, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation Dubai. “This approval strengthens our ability to provide quality maintenance support to the popular Airbus A320 corporate jet variants."
Jet Aviation Dubai’s maintenance and FBO location was established in May 2005 as a joint venture company with the Al Mulla Business Group. The facility has a total of 4,200 square meters (45,192 square feet) of hangar space, a workshop area of 1,000 square meters (10,760 square feet) and a two-story FBO building with an area of 1,050 square meters (11,300 square feet).
