EBACE, Switzerland: Jet Support Services (JSSI) 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.”
Sun-Air came to JSSI with several maintenance objectives for its fleet of regional jets, including a long-term engine program, tailored to stabilize maintenance costs. Another key business requirement was to minimize any costly aircraft-on-ground (AOG) downtime.
“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.”
