Dubai – MENA Herald: STTS, a specialist in painting & sealing of airline, military and VIP aircraft, belonging to the French group Finaero, announces the launch of a purpose built paint hangar at Dubai South.

In order to offer its customers greater proximity, STTS is investing in a 34 million USD project that will accommodate a wide body painting bay at the new international airport.

Already well developed in Europe and China, STTS has over the years acquired the reputation of a leader in its sector. It also benefits from QAPS, a branch specialized in high Quality Aircraft Painting Services. The group’s goal is now to encompass a Middle Eastern service offering. The growing region’s demand for quality makes it an ideal platform for STTS.

The site will also accommodate an aircraft interior back shop. Indeed, STTS’ sister company AIP, also benefits from renowned expertise, in airline, corporate and VIP cabin refurbishment and completions.

Christophe Cador, President of Finaero and STTS said, “Our group’s vision, throughout STTS and its Finaero sister companies, is to offer customers proximity and quality. The main principle guiding our daily actions – partnering worldwide with our customers – makes Dubai South, thanks to its international airport and its people’s professionalism, a key location for us”.

Khalifa AlZaffin, Executive Chairman, Dubai Aviation City Corporation (the parent organization of Dubai South), said: “The STTS new state-of-the-art facility adds to the aviation and aerospace ecosystem at Dubai South, bringing it closer to its ambition of becoming the only hub outside of North America and Europe to offer a complete ecosystem to the aviation and aerospace industry. We are setting the stage to enable our partners to connect better with a flourishing regional market and, by extension, to the global market.”

The new state-of-the-art painting bay will enter into operation in late 2018.
