Two Years After Landmark Agreement
EBACE 2015, Geneva, Switzerland – Jet Support Services, Inc. (JSSI) and VistaJet announced today that the 40th VistaJet aircraft has been enrolled onto JSSI’s Platinum Engine and APU hourly cost maintenance program, two years after their unprecedented agreement was reached. The Global 6000 becomes the 40th jet enrolled to date, from the new Bombardier fleet operated worldwide by VistaJet, with more to come by year end.
Last year, the JSSI and VistaJet relationship expanded with a framework agreement that included VistaJet’s Challenger 350 order of 20 firm and 20 options. The original record-making deal worth over $205 Million was reached between the two companies at EBACE 2013 and included VistaJet’s monumental fleet order of 56 Global business jets. As VistaJet continues to take deliveries, JSSI has enrolled each of the Engines and APUs for the Global 5000 and 6000, Challenger 850, Challenger 605 and Challenger 350 aircraft. VistaJet’s AugustaWestland Helicopter engines are also enrolled with JSSI.
“We are incredibly proud of the fact that we are able to deliver both our maintenance programs and expertise to VistaJet across their very diverse fleet of engines and APUs. This is a tremendous milestone for JSSI and we are very appreciative for the continued trust and confidence they have placed in us,” remarked Neil Book, President and Chief Executive Officer for JSSI. “Our businesses have much in common, especially when it comes to the emphasis placed on premium service and no one does that better than VistaJet. As we continue to enroll aircraft and expand our relationship, we will work tirelessly to raise the bar to meet and exceed their high expectations,” added Book.
“Keeping our aircraft in superior condition is critical to offering consistent service and on-time flights to our customers, making JSSI an important partner in our overall operations. The ability to plan engine and APU maintenance and accurately forecast cost has brought a great deal of stability to our operations and budget planning. JSSI’s superior level of service and proactive approach truly make them an extension of our VistaJet family,” said Nick Van Der Meer, Chief Operating Officer, VistaJet.
The JSSI Platinum Engine Program offers an all-inclusive, hourly cost maintenance program that drives down maintenance costs, provides budget stability and adds peace of mind. JSSI Platinum provides comprehensive coverage for both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, rental engines, engine removal and replacement (R&R), shipping, and a supplemental lift option. The JSSI APU Program covers scheduled and unscheduled events for all of VistaJet’s APUs, as well as Life Limited Components. Unlike other APU programs, there is no buy-in requirement and just one easy annual payment.
