Jet Support Services (JSSI) and VistaJet International signed a deal under which JSSI will provide hourly-cost maintenance coverage for the Rolls-Royce BR710 engines and Honeywell APU on the operator’s first of 50 Bombardier Global 5000s and 6000s on order. The long-term agreement is valued at more than $205 million.

“This is the largest contract in our history and, to the best of our knowledge, one of the largest if not the largest ever in the hourly-cost maintenance sector,” Neil Book, JSSI’s president and CEO, told AIN.

“It’s fantastic that JSSI can join us to celebrate both the delivery of the first Global jet from our historic order with Bombardier and the first Global from our fleet to enroll in their program,” said Nick van der Meer, VistaJet’s accountable manager.

VistaJet owns and operates the largest privately owned Bombardier business aircraft fleet–more than35 aircraft–the majority of which are large-cabin, long-range Globals and Challengers.
