Inflite The Jet Centre awarded Rolls-Royce Authorised Service Centre status
Inflite The Jet Centre, part of the Inflite group of companies, based at London Stansted Airport, is pleased to announce it has received Authorised Service Centre status from Rolls-Royce to support the engines that power Embraer’s Legacy 600 and 650 business jets. Effective immediately, Inflite will deliver the OEM’s CorporateCare and CorporateCare Enhanced MRO services to the Rolls-Royce AE3007, covering line maintenance and power by the hour support.
The OEM’s CorporateCare, the comprehensive, fixed-cost engine maintenance management programme, protects against unforeseen costs and unscheduled events anywhere in the world and reduces the administrative burdens for operators, freeing them up to focus on their day to day business. Inflite is making investment in parts and training in support of the contract. It is also adding personnel, with an initial four Rolls-Royce technicans moving over to its London Stansted facility this month.
“We are delighted to have won this endorsement from the prestigious aviation brand that is Rolls-Royce. Over the last few years we have invested considerably in our facilities and manpower and are delighted to take this contract on,” said Christoffer Creutz, Managing Director of Inflite, who joined the business two years ago from Lufthansa Technik.
“We are looking forward working closely with Rolls-Royce and their customers as we continue to evolve and grow our business, newly bolstered with the arrival of Excellence Aviation,” added InFlite Head of Customer Service Alan Barnes.
Andy Robinson, SVP Services – Business Aviation, Rolls-Royce, said: “As the leading supplier of business aircraft engines our customers trust in us to deliver outstanding in-service support. Our collaboration with the world’s most experienced maintenance providers ensures industry leading service levels for our growing global CorporateCare customer base.”
Housed in a new dedicated home within Inflite’s 250,000 sq ft hangar space, Excellence Aviation Services is expanding into full base maintenance at Stansted under Inflite ownership, specialising in Global Express and Challenger aircraft.
The deal further strengthens Inflite’s long-standing partnership with Embraer Aircraft, which first commenced in 2011. The independent MRO, which marks its 30th anniversary this year, is Embraer’s largest authorised service centre for the EMEA region, supporting Phenom, Legacy and Lineage models.
Rolls-Royce will formalise the new agreement with InFlite with the presentation of a plaque during EBACE.
