Marshall Aviation Services wins Blink contract


Blink now has nine Cessna Citation Mustangs

Marshall Aviation Services at Cambridge has signed an agreement with Blink, an private jet operator based at Blackbushe Airport in the UK, to provide multi-year MRO and technical support for its six Cessna Citation Mustang VLJs (very light jets).

Marshall will provide base support in the UK at its Cambridge headquarters, together with AOG (aircraft on ground) support in Europe.

Steve Pantry, Marshall Aviation Services’ operations manager at Cambridge, said: “We are delighted to reach an agreement to support Blink’s whole fleet. Our experience providing Citation support, together with being able to perform a wide range of technical services such as interior refurbishment, repaint, repairs and upgrades with a significant in-house design capability, gives us the edge over many of our peers serving the Citation market.”

Earlier this year, Marshall Aviation Services gained another contract from Suraviation, a Cessna Citation Mustang operator based in Spain.
