Airbus Cabin Electronics inaugurated its first service centre for the Africa and the Middle East regions at Dubai Airport Freezone last month. The facility will serve local and regional carriers as well as customers in India and Turkey, and will be an important addition to Airbus’ continued growth and investment in these regions.
The inauguration was attended by Mikail Houari, president of Airbus Africa and Middle East and Dr Mohammed Al Zarooni, director general of Dubai Airport Freezone Authority (DAFZA) as well as VIPs from across the industry.
The Dubai Service Centre will provide repair and spare part services for cabin components and systems as well as customer onsite technical services such as cabin system training. The centre will provide greater flexibility for Airbus customers with spare parts being maintained closer to airlines’ operations.

Over the years, Airbus has initiated a number of strategic partnerships in the region that have contributed to the development of the industry by providing the best of expertise, services and products.
