Dubai World Central (DWC), Al Habtoor Trading and Altran have announced the launch of their Wings Valley project.  Located within the Aviation District at Dubai World Central, which includes Al Maktoum International Airport, Al Habtoor Trading and Altran in cooperation with ADPi have pooled their expertise to create a maintenance centre dedicated to business jets and helicopters.
It has a maintenance capacity of 60 business jets and 40 helicopters per month.
Rashed Bu Qara’a, Chief Operating Officer, Dubai Aviation City Corporation, said: “Dubai World Central is a strategic initiative of Dubai Government that continues to open new possibilities in the global aviation industry.  The Aviation District, in particular, attracts major industry players from all over the world in line with DWC’s masterplan as the first purpose-built aerotropolis, which significantly optimises the business potential of all aviation businesses.  In this regard, we believe that The Wings Valley of Dubai will further reinforce the status of DWC as the perfect platform for business aviation and a global hub for aviation excellence as it brings together world-class expertise and leading-edge technology to offer best-in-class MRO services.  We will continue to work closely with global industry players as we move forward with our vision of establishing DWC as an
important gateway for business aviation in the Middle East and beyond.”
