Dubai, United Arab Emirates, June 12, 2014: DC Aviation has been granted approval from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to expand its maintenance capabilities to include the Bombardier Challenger 604/605 type of aircraft.

Through its integrated facility located at Dubai World Central, DC Aviation Al-Futtaim – the joint venture between DC Aviation and Al-Futtaim, can now offer line maintenance support to customers operating the Airbus 320 family, Bombardier Global Express in addition to the Challenger aircraft type with maintenance performed in a 5,700 square metre dedicated hangar – the only business jet hangar at Al Maktoum International Airport.

DCAF customers can look forward to receiving a diverse range of maintenance support from spare parts supply, procurement and storage to maintenance and airworthiness certification.

“We are expanding our maintenance capabilities to the benefit of our customers and are pleased to add the Challenger aircraft type,” said Michael Lindgren, Director of Maintenance at DC Aviation Al-Futtaim. “We have invested in our technicians, added tooling and equipment to support the Challenger aircraft operators. Our team of experts is committed to meet the highest quality standards to ensure our customer’s assets are safe and secure.”

As part of their commitment to its customers, DCAF is currently in an advanced stage of receiving the GCAA CAR145 approval.

DCAF’s exclusive offering includes a state-of-the-art hangar, which has enough space to accommodate four ACJ or BBJ type aircraft of the heavy business jet category as well as two ultra-long range business jets such as the Falcon 7X, Bombardier Global Express or Gulfstream G550.

In addition to minimal taxiing time and unlimited slot availability, DCAF offers VIP customers the ultimate convenience of boarding their aircraft in a matter of seconds. Their private jet will be parked right in front of the lounge with security facilities including immigration, customs and security services are provided at the facility itself.

DCAF is a joint venture between Dubai-headquartered Al-Futtaim and Germany’s DC Aviation, one of the leading European business jet operators. For more information on DCAF’s hangar and services, please visit www.dc-aviation.ae or call +971 4 870 1880.
