Hundredth upgraded service customer enrols with Rolls
Customers have been quick to catch on to the benefits of Roll-Royce's upgraded service package. Just four months after launch the 100th customer has signed on the dotted line.
'If we provide it, we cover it," says Rolls-Royce of its CorporateCare Enhanced programme.

Rolls-Royce has signed its 100th CorporateCare Enhanced service contract only weeks after the programme has become available. The upgraded service package enhances Rolls-Royce's CorporateCare service, the comprehensive, fixed-cost engine maintenance management programme for business jet customers.

The CorporateCare Enhanced service has been available for new and in-service business aviation engines since 1 January, and covers a wide range of additional services items for the AE 3007 and Tay engines, including unlimited troubleshooting and mobile repair team travel costs. For the Pearl 15, BR710 and BR725 engines it also covers maintenance for the whole powerplant including nacelle, engine build-up and thrust reverser unit-related services. The service has been introduced as standard for all new CorporateCare customers from 2019 onwards and is also eligible as an upgrade to existing contracts.

VP sales and marketing, business aviation Alan Mangels says: “Signing 100 contracts in less than four months since programme launch is a clear demonstration of how much value CorporateCare Enhanced provides to our customers. The programme was developed with the mindset of 'if we provide it, we cover it', and our customers love that. By listening to them, we continuously strive to improve our service solutions and that ultimately raises the bar for the entire industry.”

Rolls-Royce is a leading business aviation engine supplier powering more than 3,300 business aircraft in-service. Today, more than 2,000 aircraft are covered by CorporateCare and more than 70 per cent of new delivery Rolls-Royce powered aircraft are enrolled in the programme.

CorporateCare Enhanced offers substantial financial and operational benefits to customers such as increased asset value and liquidity, mitigating maintenance cost risk and protection against unforeseen costs and unscheduled events anywhere in the world. Increased aircraft availability, reduced management burden, full risk transfer, direct priority access to the Rolls-Royce services infrastructure and remote site assistance are further benefits for our customers.
