Jet Support Services, Inc. (JSSI), the leading independent provider of maintenance programs to the business aviation industry and Sun-Air, the Danish regional airline, are celebrating the first anniversary of a long-term maintenance agreement. In 2016, JSSI enrolled Sun-Air as its first regional airline and now provides engine maintenance programs for the fleet of 17 Fairchild Dornier 328JETs.

“It has been an honor providing service to Sun-Air over the past year,” said Neil Book, president and CEO of JSSI. “Our move into the commercial market was a natural progression for us to bring value to regional airlines looking for more attentive service, cost savings and support. We will continue to work every day to earn their business and exceed their expectations.”

Sun-Air came to JSSI with several maintenance objectives for their fleet of regional jets. In particular, they required a long-term engine program, tailored to stabilize maintenance costs for their unique operation. Another key business requirement was to minimize any costly aircraft-on-ground (AOG) downtime. The JSSI team assessed the airline’s unique operation and delivered a fully customized maintenance program for Sun-Air, carefully designed to meet the regional airline’s needs.

“We are incredibly happy with the JSSI Engine Program, it is exactly what we were looking for in a maintenance program,” said Kristoffer Sundberg, owner and CEO at Sun-Air. “We now have a fixed hourly rate per engine, across our entire fleet, for a 10-year period. This support offers us fixed costs for the foreseeable future, with no annual escalations, and with the added value of the unrivalled support structure that JSSI is world-renowned for.”

JSSI maintenance programs cover virtually all business jets, turboprops, and helicopters in operation in addition to commercial aircraft. For more details about these programs and more, visit Booth #A74 at EBACE 2017, May 22–24, or visit jetsupport.com.
