Airbus Corporate Jet Centre Grows ACJ Clientele with VIP Services Contracts

Since the beginning of 2014, Airbus Corporate Jet Centre (ACJC), the specialist in Airbus Corporate Jet VIP cabin completion and customised nose-to-tail services, has shown its ability to answer ACJ operators’ needs by contracting for more and more VIP services.

Building on its VIP cabin completion activity, the Airbus Corporate Jet Centre has been appointed as the Continuous Airworthiness Management Organisation (CAMO) by two customers in Asia for the outfitting phase of their ACJ aircraft, entrusting the company to manage Airworthiness Directive monitoring and Service Bulletin recommendations.

Having signed a VIP Pass agreement for 2013, the operator of two governmental Airbus ACJ319s in Eastern Europe has extended the duration of its contract for a second year. Launched in 2009, VIP Pass is a total support package of nose-to-tail customised maintenance solutions, fully dedicated to the specific needs of Airbus corporate jet operators, including maintenance checks, complete component support and CAMO engineering.

In terms of maintenance programmes, the company has performed A-checks and six-year checks for three main customers that have renewed their confidence in the ACJC team. In parallel, the company has also signed a five-year General Terms Agreement for maintenance support services with one of the largest ACJ operators in the Middle-East.

Covering a broad range of services, ACJC has implemented the first sharklets retrofit on ACJ319 and ACJ320 for two customers from the Middle-East and Asia. ACJC has also provided entry into service support services for several customers, following delivery of their aircraft.

“Further to our successes as an MRO provider in 2013, our first 2014 results confirm that we are the best placed to provide ACJ customers with a wide range of dedicated cabin and airframe services,” says Bruno Galzin, Head of ACJC Sales & Marketing. “We have been consolidating our position as the unique expert, fully dedicated to ACJ operators’ specific needs,” he concludes.
