It will provide warranty and maintenance service and spare parts for Gulfstream G450, Gulfstream G550, Gulfstream G650 and Gulfstream G650ER aircraft in West Africa.

The 275,000-square-foot/25,548-square-meter VIP aircraft terminal facility encompasses an international departure/arrival terminal, FBO and maintenance facility. It is the largest in sub-Saharan Africa and includes a 50,000-sq-ft/4,645-sq-m hangar space that can accommodate up to four G550 jets simultaneously. In preparation for service, EJAN technicians have completed FlightSafety International training programs specific to Gulfstream aircraft.

“As we have expanded our service network with new, modern facilities, we are also expanding our footprint of authorized warranty facilities as the Gulfstream fleet continues to grow around the world, including in West Africa,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream Customer Support. “We are pleased to partner with ExecuJet Aviation Nigeria as our latest service provider to give our customers in the region a new option for their warranty and maintenance needs.”
