Chicago, IL – August 30, 2017 – In support of the Hurricane Harvey relief effort, Jet Support Services, Inc. (JSSI), is waiving flight hour fees for customers who donate aircraft flight time to the relief effort. In addition, JSSI will contribute $10,000 and match every flight hour credit with a dollar-for-dollar donation to the Red Cross.
“The hearts of the entire JSSI family go out to everyone impacted by Hurricane Harvey,” commented JSSI President and CEO, Neil Book. “When people are in need, the business aviation community never fails to step up. Business aircraft are truly unique in their ability to reach locations impacted by natural disasters. We hope that by waiving these fees we can make it a little easier for our clients to utilize their business aircraft and provide a lifeline to the people and communities in crisis,” added Book.
Aircraft owners and operators wishing to donate their aircraft for relief flights may do so through the National Business Aircraft Association (NBAA) Humanitarian Emergency Response Operator (HERO) Database at https://www.nbaa.org/ops/hero/. This is a list of people in the business aviation community who are part of disaster-response mobilization efforts. Basic information from the database will be provided to organizations coordinating relief efforts.
Customers who plan to donate, or already have donated, aircraft flight time can contact their JSSI Client Relationship Manager for more information and to report relief flight hours.
