Jet Aviation Geneva Launches In-House Clean, Wash & Bright Services

Geneva / Switzerland, June 07, 2011. Jet Aviation Geneva recently expanded its interior cleaning services to include high-quality professional clean, wash and bright services for the exteriors of commercial, corporate and private aircraft.

Performed by trained aviation professionals, the new services include dry exterior cleaning, a wet wash service and brightening work. Bright work is a three-step procedure including oxidation removal, Permagard polishingand swirl mark removal, resulting in a mirror-like polish of all raw material surfaces of the aircraft. Jet Aviation Geneva personnel were trained to properly apply the Permagard polishing treatment, which provides better protection than the traditional Teflon coating and reduces the number of washes required per year. In addition to hand-polishing and buffing the aircraft panels with the environmentally friendly Permagard chemical, the dry wash service involves degreasing the nose, landing gear, leading edges and underside of the aircraft, while the wet wash consists of a complete wash and hand-dry of the exterior with water and scrubbing pads, including an interior wipe down.

“The continued provision of comprehensive, fast and flawless aircraft cleaning services demonstrates our commitment to our customers and to meeting our customers’ varying needs,” says David Ricklin, managing director of Jet Aviation Geneva.
