Gulfstream is supporting operators attending the World Cup in Brazil. A dedicated Gulfstream G150 aircraft will be based in Sorocaba and Ribeirão Preto for the tournament. The aircraft will deliver flight-essential parts and technicians to customers in Brazil whose aircraft are under warranty.
“The World Cup is one of the biggest international sporting events, making Brazil a popular business and vacation destination for many of our operators,” said Burns. “With the sporting competition spread across 12 sites, we anticipate there will be a greater need for our services and support than at other major events. We want our customers to know that our goal is to ensure their travel experience in and out of Brazil is a smooth one.”
More product support team members will be based at Sorocaba.
