ExecuJet and Rolls-Royce have signed an engine service agreement that authorises the ExecuJet Service Center in Dubai, UAE to perform engine line maintenance, removals and installations on Rolls-Royce BR710 and AE 3007A engines.
The BR710 engine is installed on the Bombardier Global Express, Global Express XRS, Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft and the AE 3007A on Embraer’s Legacy 600 and 650 aircraft. ExecuJet Dubai will be the first Authorised Service Centre in the Rolls-Royce network to work across multiple product types.
Andy Robinson, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President – Customer Services, Civil Small & Medium Engines, said: “ExecuJet Dubai is a welcome addition to the Rolls-Royce Authorised Service Centre network, especially in the Middle East where business jet sales continue to grow. The service centre will enhance the level of service we provide our customers in the Middle East and increase customer convenience by providing maintenance, inspections and parts sales directly to our operators through ExecuJet.”
As an Authorised Service Centre, ExecuJet will have direct access to all Rolls-Royce technical services and will conduct business using streamlined processes for parts ordering and invoicing, increasing customer quality of service.
