LogisticsNews Middle East - - REGIONAL NEWS -

GE Avi­a­tion has opened its On Wing Sup­port Cen­ter in Dubai South’s Avi­a­tion Dis­trict Aero­space Sup­ply Chain Fa­cil­ity, mark­ing the ex­pan­sion of the com­pany’s en­gine re­pair ser­vices in one of the world’s lead­ing avi­a­tion hubs.

GE has been op­er­at­ing its On Wing Sup­port Cen­ter with Emi­rates Air­lines since 2013, pro­vid­ing 24/7 full-ser­vice re­pair so­lu­tions for all GE and CFM en­gines that serve the Emi­rates fleet. With the new fa­cil­ity in Dubai South, the cen­tre will serve all UAE car­ri­ers – in­clud­ing Emi­rates, Eti­had Air­ways, Air Ara­bia, and fly­dubai – pro­vid­ing prompt main­te­nance and re­pair.

A sig­nif­i­cant ad­di­tion to the com­pre­hen­sive avi­a­tion ecosys­tem at Dubai South, which is de­signed to ser­vice the global aero­space in­dus­try, GE’S On Wing Sup­port Cen­tre can ser­vice up to 20 LEAP1A and LEAP-1B en­gines an­nu­ally for quick turn workscopes, in­clud­ing hot sec­tion mod­ule re­place­ments, in ad­di­tion to de­liv­er­ing on­go­ing ser­vice sup­port for all other GE/CFM en­gine mod­els with ca­pa­bil­ity to ser­vice the GE9X en­gines in the fu­ture. It will also store spare en­gines, en­abling GE Avi­a­tion to de­liver them swiftly to its cus­tomers in the re­gion.

The cen­tre, set on an area of 1,500sqm, can un­der­take the en­tire breadth of ser­vices in­clud­ing re­mote borescope in­spec­tion, com­pres­sor top case re­pairs, fan case re­moval and in­stal­la­tion, tur­bine mod­ule re­place­ments and gear­box, and com­po­nent re­place­ments. It also of­fers 24-hour tech­ni­cian cover for Air­craft On Ground (AOG) ser­vices.

Ev­ery 30 se­conds, an air­craft equipped with GE tech­nol­ogy takes off in the Mid­dle East and North Africa. With al­most 2,900 jet en­gines in ser­vice, GE and its joint ven­ture part­ners help fly two-thirds of all flights in the re­gion.
