ExecuJet Aviation Nigeria (EJAN) is set to provide warranty and maintenance service and spare parts for Gulfstream G450, Gulfstream G550, Gulfstream G650 and Gulfstream G650ER aircraft in West Africa after a new authorized warranty facility agreement was announced by American aircraft company, Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation.
According to Flightline Weekly, the 275,000-square-foot/25,548-square-meter VIP aircraft terminal facility encompasses an international departure/arrival terminal, FBO and maintenance facility. It is the largest in sub-Saharan Africa and includes a 50,000-sq-ft/4,645-sq-m hangar space that can accommodate up to four G550 jets simultaneously. In preparation for service, EJAN technicians have completed FlightSafety International training programs specific to Gulfstream aircraft.
“As we have expanded our service network with new, modern facilities, we are also expanding our footprint of authorized warranty facilities as the Gulfstream fleet continues to grow around the world, including in West Africa,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, of Gulfstream Customer Support.
“We are pleased to partner with ExecuJet Aviation Nigeria as our latest service provider to give our customers in the region a new option for their warranty and maintenance needs.”
EJAN, the largest facility of its kind in West Africa, is adjacent to the Murtala Muhammed International Airport and located in a free trade zone for parts and maintenance.
Gulfstream also revealed at the 2022 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) that the Gulfstream G700 will embark on an extensive world tour, which will include a stop in Nigeria at EJAN. This G700 debut in Africa is a further demonstration of Gulfstream’s commitment to the region and will give customers a firsthand opportunity to experience the G700 and the most spacious cabin in the business aviation industry.
