Boeing (Stand E510) has signed an agreement making Alsalam Aircraft the first authorised service centre for Boeing Business Jets in the Middle East.

Under the agreement Alsalam will provide maintenance, repair and overhaul services as well as BBJ warranty work on behalf of Boeing. More than 27% of BBJ customers are based in the Middle East. With the addition of Alsalam, BBJ customers can choose from three European service centres and two in the United States.

"This new service centre operates in the heart of the Arabian peninsula, which is the geographical link between the continents of Asia, Europe and Africa," says Lee Monson, president of BBJ.

"It expands our global access and allows us to continue meeting the needs of BBJ owners worldwide."
