Gulfstream Luton relocates to larger hangar and office complex


Gulfstream now has much bigger hangar and office complex and looks forward to supporting Gulfstream owners during the 2012 Olympics

Gulfstream Aerospace announced it has
relocated its Luton, England, service centre to a
larger, more modern hangar. The hangar and accompanying office area nearly
doubles space at the site, allowing Gulfstream Luton technicians to more
efficiently service Gulfstream’s entire fleet, including the all-new G650. 
Three floors of office space include six customer offices and a lounge.

“The entire Luton
customer experience has improved,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream
Product Support.  “We can support more customers, get their aircraft in
and out of maintenance faster than ever, and we have a place for them to work
and relax. Moving into this world-class facility is a milestone for this
24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week operation that serves the highest volume of
transient Gulfstream traffic in Europe.”

The hangar, which can accommodate 10 to 12
aircraft, depending on the mix of large-cabin and mid-cabin models, complements
Gulfstream Luton’s new parts warehouse, which opened in May 2011.  The
hangar and warehouse are adjacent to one another at the high-traffic London Luton
Airport, located 30 miles north of London.

“The combination of the new hangar and
warehouse gives Luton a much bigger footprint in the region to support the
demands of our growing fleet in Europe, Africa and the Middle
East,” Burns said.  “We’ll demonstrate our continued ability
to meet those demands and more as we prepare for the entry-into-service of our
two new aircraft, the G650 and G280, and to support Gulfstream operators at the
2012 Olympics in London.”
