The two companies first came together in October 2013 when Suraviation required urgent technical support while on a flight into Cambridge.

The companies met again at EBACE in Geneva during the show in May and talked about long-term collaboration. With Marshall-owned FlairJet also operating Cessna aircraft and welcoming a Mustang to the fleet next month, there is also an opportunity to broaden the relationship.

Steve Pantry, operations manager of Marshall Aviation Services in Cambridge says: “Having been swift to respond to Suraviation last year they were impressed with our level of service and responsiveness. This proved to be a strong foundation to build on and we are now delighted to reach an agreement to support their whole fleet.”

“Marshall’s ability to perform peripheral support services such as interior refurbishment, repairs and upgrades with a significant in-house design capability gives us the edge over many peers serving the Citation market,” adds Pantry.

Suraviation began operations in 2006. The company serves Europe and North Africa with its fleet of Citations.

James Dillon Godfray,  vice president of Marshall’s business aviation services, said: “On the back of this newly won business from Suraviation we are now evaluating the opportunity to establish more of a presence in Spain.”

Marshall Aviation Services’ MRO activity covers Europe, Middle East and Africa, on the Hawker and Beechcraft family, and now on Bombardier’s Global Express.
