North American operator XOJet Aviation is enrolling 15 Challenger 300 aircraft on a specialised 10-year engine maintenance programme with JSSI. JSSI programmes provide maintenance support on an hourly cost basis, giving XOJet a comprehensive, flexible and affordable tool for managing the costs of operating and maintaining a growing fleet of aircraft.
“We promise customers who are booking flights with XO that we will be ready for them to fly anytime and anywhere they wish,” states XOJet president and COO Kevin Thomas. “In 2020, enquiries for charter flights more than doubled and Challenger aircraft have been in high demand. In order to be able to provide consistent operational service, reliability is critical in choosing a maintenance partner, and this is why we decided to work with JSSI.”
JSSI VP of global strategy and corporate development Ash Reddy adds: “COVID-19 has created a boom in private charter as travellers seek solutions that reduce risk exposure to the virus. As they meet this influx of new customers, charter operators require a predictable maintenance budget, complete transparency into all outgoing costs and the assurance of limited aircraft downtime. These are all areas where JSSI can add significant value, and we are excited about the opportunity to partner with XOJet Aviation as it continues to strategically expand its operations.”
XOJet Aviation will be assigned a complete technical and client services support team from JSSI to support the fleet's 30 Honeywell AS907-1-1A engines in operation across the US, Bahamas and Mexico.
