JSSI and Starr Aviation double parts betterment coverage benefit for Starr clients
Jet Support Services, Inc. (JSSI), the leading independent provider of maintenance support and financial services to the aviation industry, and aircraft insurer Starr Aviation, a division of Starr Insurance Companies, are doubling the parts betterment coverage to $100,000 above engine part replacement cost for Starr insurance clients enrolled in a JSSI engine program on jets valued over $20 million.
This expanded coverage will enable cheaper and faster claims settlement and minimize out-of-pocket expenses for unscheduled claims. Companies working with both JSSI and Starr will also have fees waived that are typically incurred with a JSSI review and oversight of the initial claim.
“We saw an opportunity to add more value to this program for our medium to large business jet clients and decided to double the betterment coverage,” said Kyle Sparks, senior vice president and chief underwriting office of Starr Aviation. “Clients have already seen the benefit of our alignment with JSSI in a streamlined maintenance claims process. Expanding the coverage takes our service to another level, creating a more cost-effective experience.”
Starr Aviation and JSSI began providing this service to Starr clients in 2017. The collaborative maintenance management service enables Starr to utilize JSSI’s global network of technical advisors to closely manage off-wing engine and auxiliary power unit events.
“This continued strategic alliance with Starr Aviation brings even higher levels of service and cost savings to our clients when unexpected events occur. We look forward to expanding this collaborative relationship with Starr to deliver more value to business aircraft owners and operators globally,” stated Lou Seno, president of JSSI Advisory Services.
