As one of the few operators who provide air travel to these hostile locations, (ESJ) is rapidly becoming the specialist for this market. Their aptly experienced and fully competent staff are able to deal with even the most challenging situations efficiently and effectively. They are proud of their expertise when handling these difficult and sensitive flights and this is firmly strengthening (ESJ)'s reputation in this field. In actual fact, (ESJ) takes effect as a consultant to other less experienced operators in order to provide guidance and advice.
(ESJ) has long since recognized that excellence in the air, requires excellence on the ground. As part of its ongoing corporate development program, the company is working to establish fully equipped (GCAA), (JAR) and (EASA) accredited line maintenance facilities at Dubai International Airport and the region. These facilities are aimed at developing the company’s existing in-house line maintenance operation into a regional center for cost effective maintenance and spares support.
(ESJ) offers a full turnkey management solution for clients who wish to purchase their own airplanes. (ESJ) can manage airplanes to help get the most from them.
