ExecuJet announces free trade zone for customers in Nigeria

Posted 26 March 2018 · Add Comment

ExecuJet, part of the Luxaviation Group, is announcing the approval of a free trade zone at its MRO facility in Lagos, Nigeria, with customers set to save 10-15% or more on supply and maintenance services.

 

The free trade zone (FTZ) means that parts and services, which previously would have incurred VAT and costs from customs authorities, will now be exempt from these charges. ExecuJet will be passing this substantial saving onto customers.

The agreement also allows the company to keep consignment stock for a number of OEMs, which means quicker turnaround for parts – a bonus which will benefit both business aviation operators and regional airlines in Nigeria.

Gavin Kiggen, Vice President Africa, ExecuJet, says: “Obtaining the FTZ took approximately two years, during which time the ExecuJet team had to demonstrate how the FTZ would benefit Lagos and Nigeria as a whole. We’re very proud to now announce the approval of the FTZ in Lagos, and the successful negotiation of zero VAT and zero duties for ExecuJet customers.

“The FTZ is the latest addition to our services in Nigeria, after we welcomed a number of manufacturers to our facility in 2017. Our MRO in Lagos is on an exciting trajectory, and we expect this to continue as we serve our customers with ever-more competitive pricing to match the quality, performance and efficiency that ExecuJet demonstrates on a local and a global scale.”
