Jet Aviation Saudi Arabia recently added a new nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) battery shop to its maintenance facilities.

This new maintenance capability allows the company to check, charge and overhaul most battery models at its facility rather than outsourcing the work.

Alain Champonnois, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation Saudi Arabia said: “We are very pleased to introduce an in-house battery service for our customers in Jeddah and Riyadh.”

“Our goal is to provide our clients the best support possible and the battery shop is our latest initiative aimed at improving efficiency and reducing aircraft downtime,” added Champonnois.

Jet Aviation Saudi Arabia is a joint venture company with Saudi Arabian partners and was the first company to set up an FBO in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The company currently operates three FBOs in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in Jeddah, Riyadh and Medina.

Jet Aviation is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics.
