Royal Jet, the Middle East’s foremost private charter company, headquartered in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has awarded SR Technics, one of the world’s leading technical providers of solutions to airlines, a five-year contract to maintain, repair and overhaul their CFM56-7B engine fleet.
