ExecuJet Haite Aviation Services China Co. Ltd (ExecuJet Haite) has signed an agreement with Capital Airport Holding Business Aviation Management Co. Ltd (CBM) to operate the new MRO facility at Beijing Daxing International Airport (PKX).

The agreement allows ExecuJet Haite to operate the 5,000sqm state-of-the-art maintenance hangar including back shops and offices at PKX.
The facility will support various original aircraft manufacturers (OEMs) and aircraft types under Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) and certifications from overseas national aviation authorities as it currently does at its Tianjin MRO facility.

Islands, Bermuda and Aruba.
