Jet Aviation Appointed a BBJ Factory Authorized Service Center in Singapore
SINGAPORE – Jet Aviation’s MRO facility at Seletar Aerospace Park in Singapore has been designated a Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) Authorized Warranty Repair Facility and BBJ Factory Authorized Service Center (ASC), joining the company’s previously appointed BBJ ASCs in Basel, Dubai and Geneva. The MRO facility in Singapore has also received EASA approval for the Gulfstream G650.
The Boeing Factory Authorized Service Center and Warranty Repair Facility designation permits Jet Aviation’s maintenance facility in Singapore to provide warranty line and base maintenance support to the Boeing BBJ series. The company’s new EASA approval authorizes the Singapore facility to further extend line and base maintenance support to owners and operators of G650 aircraft that are registered in EASA member states.
“Jet Aviation has been supporting Boeing Business Jets for many years and has a long and trusted relationship with the aircraft manufacturer,” says John Riggir, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation’s MRO and FBO facility in Singapore. “We are pleased to further improve our capabilities to extend warranty support to BBJ owners and operators in the region. These new approvals demonstrate our steadfast commitment to our customers to uphold the highest business aviation standards.”
Last month, Jet Aviation was named Best MRO (Singapore / Hong Kong) at the Asian Business Aviation Association’s (AsBAA) Icons of Aviation Asia Awards ceremony and charity gala dinner held in Hong Kong on November 10.
