Jet Support Services (JSSI) annouced today that it is waiving flight-hour fees for customers who donate aircraft flight time to the Hurricane Harvey relief effort. In addition, JSSI will contribute $10,000 and match every flight hour credit with a dollar-for-dollar donation to the Red Cross.
“The hearts of the entire JSSI family go out to everyone affected by Hurricane Harvey,” said JSSI president and CEO Neil Book. “When people are in need, the business aviation community never fails to step up. Business aircraft are unique in their ability to reach locations impacted by natural disasters. We hope that by waiving these fees we can make it a little easier for our clients to use their business aircraft and provide a lifeline to the people and communities in crisis.”
Customers who plan to donate, or already have donated, aircraft flight time can contact their JSSI client relationship manager for more information and to report relief flight hours. Aircraft owners and operators wishing to donate their aircraft for relief flights can do so through NBAA’s Humanitarian Emergency Response Operator (HERO) database.
