NetJets opens new Paris Maintenance Hub
NetJets has officially opened its new Maintenance Service Hub at Paris Airport-Le Bourget to provide a 24-hour maintenance facility for all the company’s aircraft operating in Europe.
The Le Bourget Maintenance Service Hub creates a 24/7/365 MRO (maintenance, repairs and operations) service with JetSupport in response to growing demand, according to the company. The new facility, together with the additional hub at London Luton Airport, is designed to ensure the smooth operation of NetJets’ 450,000 global flights each year.
Le Bourget’s service hub hangar covers 4,014sqm plus a ramp area covering an additional 11,329sqm. Big enough to accommodate the fleet’s largest aircraft models, including the Bombardier Global 6000 or Bombardier Challenger 650, the facility will help to deliver maximum aircraft availability, said the company.
Christian Luwisch, executive director, NetJets Europe said: “I am delighted to officially announce the opening of our brand-new Maintenance Service Hub at Le Bourget. As we continue to expand our fleet across Europe, it is imperative that our operations that keep our aircraft airborne expand at the same rate to ensure our owners can continue to fly. At NetJets, safety is our priority and both Le Bourget and Luton are strategically located to ensure seamless proactive servicing.”
As the facility becomes established in the coming months there is scope for more aircraft to be serviced each due to the ample capacity of the hangars, said the company.
