HIstoric Deal for VistaJet and JSSI

An historic deal for JSSI and VistaJet was announced today at EBACE — a US$205 million deal that puts 50 Bombardier 5000 and 6000 aircraft onto JSSI's Platinum engine and APU hourly cost maintenance programs. The aircraft are part of VistaJet's November 2012 order of 56 Bombardier Global Jets and options for an additional 86 Global aircraft. That transaction was valued at more than US$7.7 billion. Deliveries will begin in 2014 to VistaJet.

"Having our engines and APS on a JSSI maintenance program is critical to the VistaJet business model," said Thomas Flohr, founder and chairman of VistaJet. It provides budget stability and adds another dimension of service to the standard maintenance program., he added.

Both have a high visibility here at EBACE. Their stands are full of customers and visitors. Looks like deals are being done, smiles all around. A very bright spot indeed for business aviation.
