Jet Aviation announces a work scope extension of its existing Boeing 777 capabilities in Basel.
The facility holds maintenance approval for over 50 aircraft types.
Jet Aviation Basel is now approved for heavy maintenance on the Boeing 777 up to and including 15-year checks.
The work scope extension required the company to invest in additional specialized tools and training for the Boeing 777 and was approved in late 2022.
“This extension of our work scope for the Boeing 777 in Basel is a fantastic achievement and cements our position as one of the leading global maintenance providers for wide- and narrow-body business aircraft,” says Cyril Martiniere, VP MRO Europe and GM Basel.
“The application was in response to increasing market demand for these capabilities in Basel and demonstrates our commitment to investing in our growth in line with the needs of our customer.
“The Boeing 777 is an important platform and we are delighted to be able to offer heavy maintenance on this aircraft to our customers across the region and beyond. I look forward to welcoming more 777s to Basel in the future.”
Jet Aviation Basel holds maintenance approval for over 50 aircraft types and is an authorized service center for Airbus Corporate Jets, Boeing Business Jets, Gulfstream and Embraer.
The facility comprises six hangars totaling over 36,700 square-meters, with an additional 13,500 square-meters of workshops, and can accommodate aircraft up to Airbus 380 and Boeing 747.
“As one of the largest and most experienced business jet maintenance providers in the world, we are proud to be able to offer our customers such a wide array of services from heavy base maintenance, to refurbishment or system upgrades, as well as line maintenance, aftermarket services, and AOG,” says Jeremie Caillet, SVP regional operations EMEA.
