Government controlled aircraft leasing firm Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) has agreed to acquire 80 per cent of Jordan Aircraft Maintenance Limited (Joramco) from Abraaj Group.

Joramco provides aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul for customers in the Middle East, Europe, South Asia, Africa, Russia and the CIS countries from its base in Amman’s Queen Alia International Airport. It services aircraft by manufacturers Airbus, Boeing and Embraer.

“Joramco with its experienced staff provides a high quality product at a very competitive price to regional and global airlines,” said DAE managing director Khalifa H. AlDaboos.

“We welcome Joramco to the DAE family and look forward to working with the management to accelerate the growth trajectory of the company by expanding its product offerings, customer reach and geographic area of focus.”

DAE is majority owned by Investment Corporation of Dubai (ICD) with other shareholders including Dubai International Capital, Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority and Emaar Properties.

Reports in 2014 suggested ICD intended to increase its stake in the firm, which at the time stood at 55 per cent.
