Global Crossing Airlines has signed an initial agreement with Spirit Airlines, a U.S.-based airline that operates A320 family aircraft (including the new A320neo) and serves destinations across the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean. Spirit will provide on-call and line maintenance for GlobalX, including daily and weekly checks, in support of the GlobalX fleet of A320 and A321 aircraft. The contract will commence in December when GlobalX expects to take delivery of its first A320 and A321 aircraft.
“We are very pleased to be working with Spirit and have them support us, particularly through the final stages of our certification as we get ready to fly our A320 aircraft in proving runs for our flag carrier certificate,” says Chris Toro, VP-Tech Ops of GlobalX. “Spirit runs a world-class airline, and we expect to learn from their best practices in A320 maintenance.”
Kirk Thornburg, VP of Technical Operations for Spirit Airlines, adds “We look forward to supporting GlobalX through their certification and as they begin revenue charter operations both at Miami International Airport and at select Spirit maintenance stations.”
