ExecuJet Middle East has expanded its maintenance capability at Dubai International Airport with the addition of a second hangar.
According to the company, the 4,830 sq m facility is capable of accommodating up to ten or more aircraft of various sizes and also features 417 sq m of additional office space.
ExecuJet also stated that the new hangar, which has been committed under an initial three-year lease, complements its existing 5,600 sq m maintenance, fixed base operator (FBO) and office facility at the airport, where it also offers aircraft management and charter services.
Mike Berry, managing director for ExecuJet Middle East, said that following the company's recently won maintenance accreditation for the Embraer Legacy family, the addition of the second hangar would put it in a strong position to take on more maintenance contracts and accommodate more base aircraft.
"The Middle East business aviation market is showing positive signs of recovery and business is now steady," he added. "On the FBO side we are handling increased charter activity with flights within the Middle East and to regions such as Africa and Europe being especially popular."
