VIP Contracts Grow For Airbus Corporate Jet Centre
Airbus Corporate Jet Centre has added new contracts in 2014 for its cabin and airframe services for Airbus Corporate Jet aircraft. Two Asian customers have appointed ACJC as their continuous airworthiness management organization (CAMO) for the outfitting phase of their ACJs, while an eastern European government operator of two ACJ319s has extended its VIP Pass contract for another year. The VIP Pass was introduced in 2009 as a total support package covering CAMO services, maintenance checks and component support.
Three customers have chosen ACJC for A-checks and six-year checks so far in 2014, and the company has signed a five-year maintenance support services agreement with one of the Middle East’s largest ACJ operators. Other work this year has included several entry-into-service support contracts and also the first sharklet winglet retrofits, applied to an ACJ319 and an ACJ320.
ACJC (Booth 6613) has also landed a contract to outfit an ACJ319 for an Asian customer, following on from two cabin completion projects from Asia that were landed late last year. The most recent contract covers a cabin fit in an atypical configuration, and this also includes CAMO support.
