“Our highest priority is to meet the needs of our customers,” says Hardy Bütschi, vice president and general manager at Jet Aviation Dubai.

“If it means moving our business operations to another location to continue ensuring the highest safety, quality and service standards for our customers, then that’s what we will do,” added Bütschi.

Jet Aviation Dubai can accommodate up to four large-scale base maintenance projects at its Dubai International Airport facility prior to the start of runway construction. Scheduled maintenance activities will continue at the facility despite the runway closure.

“Jet Aviation’s extensive MRO network in EMEA and Asia is of real benefit to our customers at times like this,” adds Stefan Benz, vice president of Jet Aviation’s MRO and FBO operations, EMEA and Asia.

“Our customers value the fact that they can enjoy Jet Aviation services at any of our global facilities. For our customers in the Middle East, we will have slots available for base and scheduled maintenance throughout the runway restorations,” Benz added.
