GULFSTREAM TO EXTEND OPERATING HOURS IN BEIJING

Additional Employees Also Planned As Service Center Enhances Customer Support.

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced that its company-owned service center in Beijing will extend its hours of operation, enhancing its support of operators based in and traveling through the region. During the second quarter of 2018, the facility at Beijing Capital International Airport will add a shift from 3:30 p.m. to midnight Monday through Friday.

To support the extra shift, Gulfstream Beijing will add approximately 10 technicians or inspectors.

The company also announced plans to add several capabilities to further enhance its support of operators based in Greater China, including Civil Aviation Administration of  China (CAAC) approval for 36-month heavy maintenance inspections for the G650 and G650ER.

“The additional shift at Gulfstream Beijing ensures that our customers receive the best support possible while traveling to or within China,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream Product Support. “Adding scheduled heavy maintenance inspections is part of our plan for the region as our aircraft there mature. These additions reflect our long-term strategy for ensuring our customers receive high-quality service, regardless of location.”
