SmartSky - Finally WifI that Wows

HAECO Xiamen has obtained from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) an extension to its Approved Maintenance Organisation (AMO) certificate, covering both airframe and line maintenance.

This enables HAECO Private Jet Solutions (HAECO PJS), the Group’s private jet cabin completion specialist, to provide airframe maintenance as part of its comprehensive, one-stop cabin completion solutions for UAE-registered aircraft at its facility in Xiamen.

HAECO PJS has already worked with a number of Saudi Arabian operators, and provides dedicated customer support in Middle East from Dubai. The award of the GCAA approval adds to the division’s value proposition as a service provider supporting customers from the Middle East region.

As the first and only Airbus-approved and Boeing-licensed cabin completion centre in Asia Pacific, HAECO PJS is committed to providing customers with a tailored solution encompassing early stage conceptual and industrial design, design engineering, certification, strategic procurement, workshop support, installation, maintenance, and after-sales support.
