ExecuJet Haite has signed an agreement with Capital Airport Holding Business Aviation Management (CBM) to operate a new MRO facility at Beijing Daxing International Airport.
The binding agreement allows ExecuJet Haite to operate a 5,000 square metre state-of-the-art large-scale maintenance hangar with extensive back shops and offices from Beijing.
The facility, which is already built, is co-located within the airport’s business aviation area – some 300,000 square metres, making it the largest business
aviation centre in Asia Pacific.
ExecuJet Haite’s MRO facility will support various original aircraft manufacturers and aircraft types under the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) and certifications from overseas national aviation authorities as it currently does at its Tianjin MRO facility.
ExecuJet Haite in Tianjin is certified by the CAAC, European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). It is also certified by the authorities of Cayman
Islands, Bermuda, Aruba and more.
Paul Desgrosseilliers, general manager of ExecuJet Haite, said: “The infrastructure at Beijing Daxing International Airport is second to none and we are absolutely delighted to immediately start supporting business aircraft at the airport and working co-operatively with CBM to create a world class business aviation hub and destination.”
Li Yingyong, General Manager of CBM, added: “This new agreement will bring the combined FBO and MRO business aviation expertise of both companies together to work in unison towards the further development of China’s business aviation market and specifically enhance maintenance services and support at Beijing Daxing International Airport to the benefit of both of our shared customers.”
CBM already provides high-level FBO services to business jets and travellers at Beijing Daxing International Airport and Beijing Capital International Airport, and will work in alliance with ExecuJet Haite to further develop Beijing Daxing as an industry leading business jet base and entry point into the dynamic Chinese market.
A large proportion of the 300,000 square metre business aviation centre is used for FBO and FBO-related activities. There is an 11,000 square metre FBO building; an area for business jet ramp
parking; and five other 5,000 square metre hangars, all dedicated to aircraft parking.
