Geneva / Switzerland, May 18, 2011 – The Jet Aviation Group and Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) announced today the signing of a lease agreement at this year’s EBACE Convention in Geneva whereby Jet Aviation will start to provide aviation services from Al Bateen Executive Airport later this year.
The agreement with ADAC includes the lease of offices at the exclusive business aviation airport, where Jet Aviation will be Al Bateen Executive’s first independent MRO provider. Jet Aviation’s service offering will include line maintenance through a newly established Jet Aviation Abu Dhabi branch office and staffing services through Jet Professionals, a subsidiary of the Jet Aviation Group. Services will be made available as soon as necessary trade licenses are obtained from the authorities.
“We have great respect for Jet Aviation,” says Stephen Jones, General Manager Al Bateen Executive Airport. “They have earned an excellent reputation for quality and business aviation expertise over four decades, and we are very happy to have such a globally recognized brand at Al Bateen Executive Airport.”
The newly formed Jet Aviation Abu Dhabi will be an affiliate of Jet Aviation Dubai for the purpose of providing line maintenance services to local, regional and international business aircraft owners and operators flying into Al Bateen Executive Airport. “We have often provided aircraft-on-ground (AOG) services to all types of aircraft at Al Bateen for the past few years and it makes perfect sense for us to expand our service delivery to Abu Dhabi to better serve our customer base in the region,” explains Michael Rücker, senior vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation Dubai.
