Jet Aviation’s Completions Center in Basel has received approval from Airbus Corporate Jets for the ACJ350 XWB. The Completions Center has a long history of partnership with Airbus Corporate Jets. Jet Aviation has delivered 23 VIP Airbus cabins since 2000. As the latest addition to Airbus’ family of VIP wide-body corporate jets, the ACJ350 XWB approval reflects the history of technological innovation at Jet Aviation’s Completions Center and is an important step enabling the company to support owners and operators of the Airbus ACJ350. The facility in Basel is one of the leading wide-body aircraft completions centers. It has successfully delivered 23 VIP Airbus cabins since 2000, from the ACJ319 to the ACJ340-600. In particular, the Center specializes in new-generation composite aircraft such as the Airbus ACJ350 XWB. With the help of Airbus’ proprietary Easyfit concept, Jet Aviation’s Completion Center in Basel can integrate a cabin without the need for complex and costly airframe modifications. “This service expansion demonstrates our commitment to investing in new aviation technologies and to maintaining the highest quality standards,” says Neil Boyle, SVP Completions at Jet Aviation. “We are ready and pleased to welcome ACJ350 XWB owners and operators here in Basel with our wide range of well-known first class services.”
Jet Aviation was appointed by Airbus to create renderings of an ACJ350 XWB cabin interior for display at EBACE 2016. The company is currently building a new 8,700 square-meter, state-of-the-art hangar in Basel to meet increased demand for wide-body completions and refurbishments. The hangar is ideally suited for next-generation aircraft such as the ACJ350 XWB and will go operational at the end of 2018. In addition, the company’s maintenance facilities in Basel and Dubai both belong to the ACJ Service Center Network.
