Satys Aerospace signs agreement with MBRAH for construction of new paint hangar

12 September 2023

Satys Aerospace has signed a new agreement with the Mohammed Bin Rashid Aerospace Hub (MBRAH), Dubai’s aerospace platform dedicated to advancing the aerospace industry, to build a new paint hangar at Dubai South – Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC).

The new production facility, which will also accommodate a second paint booth, will address business aviation markets (Dassault Falcon, Bombardier, Gulfstream and Embraer, to name a few) and single-aisle commercial aviation markets (Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 families in particular). With a capacity of around 20 aircraft annually, the state-of-the-art hangar, which will be the only one of its kind in the area, will become operational in January 2025. The opening will bring the number of aircraft paint bays operated by Satys to 39 in 13 countries across North America, Asia, Europe and the Middle East.

“This agreement would not have been possible without Dubai South’s strong support for aeronautical projects over the past several years,” says Christophe Cador, CEO of the Satys Group. “We are delighted to be able to meet the growing demand for repainting single-aisle and VIP aircraft in the Middle East and to make Dubai a centre of excellence.”

“The strategic partnership with Satys will add value to our portfolio of discerning partners,” says Tahnoon Saif, CEO of MBRAH. “Our aim at MBRAH is to attract the top global players to expand and benefit from our integrated ecosystem and state-of-the-art infrastructure and facilities. We will continue our mandate to solidify and cement Dubai’s position on the world aviation map.”
