JSSI Helps Speed Bizav Aid for Haiti Relief Efforts

Jet Support Services (JSSI) management and technical services representatives volunteered their time to help deliver supplies to earthquake-damaged Haiti. JSSI purchased 20,000 pounds of critical supplies and helped volunteers in the Corporate Aircraft Responding in Emergencies (Care) network to load and prepare donation flights out of Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport in Florida. For aircraft covered by its hourly cost maintenance programs, JSSI is waiving the normal hourly payment when those aircraft are used in the Haiti relief effort. “Our hearts go out to these people who have lost their families and whose homes and villages have been destroyed,” said JSSI president and CEO Lou Seno. “These donated flights from NBAA members via the Care network are saving lives right now, with every load of supplies that comes into Haiti. The business aviation community is full of good people who want to make a difference, and, even after a tough year like 2009, we are strong and nimble enough to make a significant impact on the Haiti relief efforts.”
