Boeing has signed an agreement with
Alsalam Aircraft Company, making the company the first authorized
service center for Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) in the Middle East
region. The agreement was announced during the eighth annual Dubai
International Air show.
Based in the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh, Alsalam will
provide maintenance, repair and overhaul services as well as BBJ
warranty work on behalf of Boeing.
“This new service center operates in the heart of the
Arabian peninsula, which is the geographical link between the
continents of Asia, Europe and Africa. It expands our global access
and allows us to continue meeting the needs of BBJ owners
worldwide,” said Lee Monson, president of BBJ. “Alsalam
is a proven provider of aircraft maintenance and technical services
for large, commercial and military aircraft, and we are pleased to
formalize our partnership with them.”
More than 27 percent of BBJ customers are from the Middle East
With the addition of Alsalam, BBJ operators can chose from three
service centers in Europe and two in the United States for
authorized service and warranty work. Those include: Associated Air
in Dallas, Texas. DeCrane Aircraft Systems Integration Group (PATS)
in Georgetown, Del.; Lufthansa Technik in Hamburg, Germany; and Jet
Aviation in Basel and Geneva, Switzerland.
Boeing Business Jets is a joint venture with General Electric
launched in July 1996 to respond to market demand for a larger,
more capable business airplane that can fly more than 6,000 nm.
There are more than 69 BBJs in service worldwide.
