JSSI celebrates $205 million VistaJet deal and 10,000th enrolment
VistaJet has enrolled 50 Bombardier Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft onto JSSI’s Platinum Engine and APU hourly cost maintenance programmes in a long-term agreement worth over $205 million.
The aircraft are part of the Vistajet’s record-breaking order – worth more than $7.8 billion – for up to 142 Global business jets placed in November 2012.
“Having our Engines and APUs on a JSSI maintenance program is critical to the VistaJet business model,” said Thomas Flohr, founder and chairman of VistaJet.
“In addition to providing budget stability, JSSI adds another dimension of service to the standard maintenance program. We currently have two Global aircraft and our AugustaWestland Helicopter enrolled with JSSI, and are delighted to increase our business with them as our worldwide fleet continues to grow.”
Neil Book, president and CEO of JSSI confirmed that the agreement between the two aviation companies marked “the largest single enrolment for any hourly cost maintenance programme” that JSSI was aware of.
“We are proud of VistaJet’s confidence in us and excited to be working with the extremely innovative and successful VistaJet International, he added. “The JSSI team shares their passion for business aviation and the global vision that Mr. Flohr and his VistaJet team exemplify. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship for years to come.”
JSSI continued the celebrations at EBACE in Geneva this week by enrolling the 10,000th asset – a pair of Global 6000 Rolls-Royce BR710A2-20 engines owned by Geneva-based Air King Jet – onto its Platinum programme
The aircraft maintenance provider also launched new engine programmes for the Honeywell TFE731-40BR engines that power the new Learjet 70 and 75 aircraft – which made its EBACE debut this week – as well as a new airframe programme for the Cessna Citation CJ4 aircraft.
“We are constantly working to expand our programme coverage to keep up with demand, especially with new aircraft models,” said Book. “It’s exciting to see the new Learjet 75 making its debut here at EBACE and we are proud to offer new owners the opportunity to enrol in our comprehensive engine program. We feel confident that our new programs will be successful here in Europe as well as, around the world, as the industry rebounds.”
