ExecuJet is announcing an extended Line Maintenance capability for EASA registered aircraft at its base in Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, Nigeria. In partnership with Maintenance Centre Malta (MCM), ExecuJet now supports a larger fleet of different aircraft types from Bombardier, Dassault and Hawker in the West Africa region.

Ettore Poggi, Vice President, ExecuJet Africa, says: “Through our world-class FBO and MRO services, ExecuJet has supported local and international business jet travellers and aircraft owners in West Africa for a number of years. As the approved Authorised Service Centre for Bombardier, Dassault, Hawker and Embraer Phenom products, we are delighted to be able to extend our capabilities and will be one of very few EASA line maintenance service providers in the region.”

The new partnership will also see the addition of a Part 145 approved workshop facility covering batteries, wheels and NDT (non-destructive testing) support.

ExecuJet’s Nigerian facility, which includes an FBO and MRO operation, has direct access to the airport’s main runway and taxiway. The facility is supported by 96 staff and services more than 100 aircraft in the region including 54 Bombardier aircraft, 17 Dassault Falcon aircraft and 21 Hawker models.
