Rolls-Royce has signed the 500th CorporateCare Enhanced service contract since the programme became available less than 24 months ago. The service covers a range of additional services items for the AE 3007 and Tay engines, including troubleshooting and mobile repair team travel costs. For the Pearl 15, Pearl 700, BR710 and BR725 engines it also covers maintenance for the whole powerplant, including nacelle, engine build-up and thrust reverser unit-related services as well as erosion and corrosion on all engine and nacelle parts. The enhanced service was introduced as standard for all new CorporateCare customers from 2019 onwards and is also available as an upgrade to existing contracts.
Andy Robinson, senior VP of customers and services for business aviation, says: “Since we launched CorporateCare Enhanced in 2018, we have seen very strong demand from customers, who clearly see the value of this programme. We developed it with the mindset of, 'if we provide it, we cover it', and our customers love that.”
Rolls-Royce powers more than 3,200 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 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 customers.
