The facility offers a full spectrum of scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, critical spare parts and warranty services for the region's increasing number of Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft customers.

This service centre features 24,000 square feet (2,230 sq m) of hangar space and two maintenance bays capable of accommodating two super-large Global Express XRS ultra long-range business jets and two Challenger aircraft at the same time. It is staffed by more than 50 trained full-time engineers, technicians, crew and support staff and offers 24-hour Aircraft On Ground (AOG) maintenance and parts support.

The adjacent 2,800-square-foot (260-sq-m) service parts depot will house over 860 high-demand parts for Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft and will be open 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Inventory will begin arriving next month and the depot is scheduled to be fully operational by early 2006.

"We are continuing our drive to elevate our service and support to world-class levels, and to ensure our customers enjoy unparalleled aircraft availability," stated Dave Orcutt, vice-president, customer support, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "By combining Bombardier's high standards with the proven expertise and capabilities of ExecuJet, we are ensuring our valued customers based in the Middle East, as well as in-transit, can now have access to top quality maintenance and service solutions."

ExecuJet is the exclusive Middle East representative for the sale of Learjet aircraft and has offered Bombardier business jet charters since 1999.
