ExecuJet and Honeywell join forces in Africa
ExecuJet Nigeria has become a Honeywell-approved avionics dealer and installation and service facility.
The move means that business jet owners in West and North Africa will no longer have to fly to Europe or South Africa for overhauls, upgrades or repairs. Instead, they can now use ExecuJet’s facility in the Nigerian city of Lagos.
“As the African business and general aviation market continues to expand, this arrangement enhances an owner’s or operator’s ease to modernise, upgrade and overhaul cockpits locally,” said a Honeywell spokesman.
Graeme Duckworth, executive vice president MRO services at ExecuJet parent company Luxaviation Group, said: “In Africa, we can now offer the technology and services our customers need, so they can focus on the travel requirements of their clients and have access to our world-class expertise without leaving the continent.”
Rudolph Louw, aerospace leader for Africa at Honeywell Aerospace, added: “As the market for business and general aviation grows in the African region, so should the support structures that customers rely on.
“Enhancing support in Africa and working with local businesses like ExecuJet Nigeria further demonstrates Honeywell’s commitment to the region, especially as the supplier of products and services that are key to increasing the efficiency, safety and reliability of the area’s aircraft.”
