Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) today announced it has opened an expanded office in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). The office, which is located in Jumeirah Lake Towers, is staffed by a team of sales and support experts available to provide advice on the full Hawker Beechcraft product lineup and turnkey solutions for aircraft ownership and support. The decision to expand HBC’s operations in the UAE comes as demand for private aviation in the Middle East continues to expand during the global downturn.
“We view the Middle East, Dubai in particular, as one of our key international growth markets and expect this to continue as the Arab nations continue to grow in importance in the global economy,” said Sean McGeough, HBC president, Europe, Middle East and Africa. “Therefore the new Dubai office will help us expand our presence in the region and capitalize on customer demand.”
The opening of Hawker Beechcraft’s Dubai office comes shortly after the launch of its new parts distribution centre in Dubai, which, combined with similar centres in Dallas, London, Johannesburg, Singapore and Beijing, make more than $375 million (AED1.38 billion) in inventory available to HBC customers worldwide.
The Hawker Beechcraft International Service Company can be contacted at Office 3201, Indigo Icon Tower, Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Dubai. The team can be reached at +971 4433 1763.
