Bombardier appoints ExecuJet Nigeria an LMF for its business jets
ExecuJet Nigeria in Lagos has been named by Bombardier as a line maintenance facility for Challenger 300, Challenger 604, Challenger 605, Global 5000, Global 6000, Global Express and Global Express XRS business jets.
The new Nigerian facility will complement ExecuJet’s centre in Lanseria, South Africa.
“ExecuJet has greatly collaborated with Bombardier throughout the years. Their commitment to excellence coupled with their knowledge of our products make them an excellent choice for our Bombardier operators in the region,” said Éric Martel, president, Customer Services & Specialized and Amphibious Aircraft, Bombardier Aerospace. “The ExecuJet authorized facilities around the world are an important part of our overall network and we look forward to many years of continuing collaboration.”
The Nigeria facility, located at Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, features a large maintenance hangar and apron. ExecuJet has been providing maintenance services for business aviation in Lagos for the last year and for over 10 years at its Lanseria International Airport location in Johannesburg.
“We are honoured to have been appointed as a maintenance facility by Bombardier in Lagos, Nigeria and this complements the services offered by our Bombardier ASF facility in Lanseria. Having obtained AMO certification from the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authorities and South African line station authorization for the world-class maintenance and FBO facility in Murtala Muhammed International Airport, it is ExecuJet Nigeria’s intention to become full EASA certified this year and is aiming to achieve this status by end of the second quarter,” said Ettore Poggi, managing director, ExecuJet Africa.
