VistaJet signs up 50 aircraft for engine support
VistaJet has enrolled its fleet of Global 5000 and 6000 aircraft onto the Jet Support Services Inc (JSSI) hourly cost maintenance programmes, in an agreement valued at more than US$205m.

VistaJet has enrolled its fleet of Global 5000 and 6000 aircraft onto the Jet Support Services Inc (JSSI) hourly cost maintenance programmes, in an agreement valued at more than US$205m. The 50 aircraft are part of VistaJet's largest order in aviation history placed in November last year.

“Having our engines and APUs on a JSSI maintenance programme is critical to the VistaJet business model,” says founder and chairman Thomas Flohr. “In addition to providing budget stability, JSSI adds another dimension of service to the stand- ard maintenance programme. 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 grows.”

The Platinum engine programme for the Rolls-Royce BR710A2-20 that powers the Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft offers all-inclusive, hourly cost maintenance to provide budget stability.

The programme for the Honeywell RE220 will cover scheduled and unscheduled events for VistaJet's APUs, as well as life limited components. Unlike other APU programmes, there is no buy-in requirement and one annual payment.

In a separate deal, ABS Jets will handle all VistaJet aircraft flying in and out of the Czech and Slovak republics. The in-country partnership aims to give VistaJet customers and crew a seamless transition from the aircraft to their onward destination.

“Our standards, aircraft and outlook reflect our commitment to providing the very best experience for anyone travelling with us,” says ABS Jets ceo Vladimir Petak. “I look forward to welcoming many VistaJet aircraft to our facilities.”

Ian Moore, VistaJet cco, adds: “We have every confidence that the extremely high standards our customers are accustomed to in the cabin will be extended on the ground.”
