XOJet Aviation is enrolling its 15 Bombardier Challenger 300s in a 10-year, hourly engine maintenance program with Jet Support Services (JSSI). As a result, JSSI will assign a technical and client services support team to support the 30 Honeywell AS907-1-1A engines that power these super-midsize jets that XOJet operates in the U.S., Bahamas, and Mexico.

Rising charter demand from the Covid-19 pandemic prompted XOJet Aviation, the operating air carrier for on-demand charter company XOJet, to seek an engine maintenance program. JSSI said the program will give the Part 135 operator predictability in its maintenance budget and assurance of limited aircraft downtime.

“In 2020, inquiries for charter flights more than doubled and Challenger aircraft have been in high demand,” said XOJet aviation president and COO Kevin Thomas. “To be able to provide consistent operational service, reliability is critical in choosing a maintenance partner, and this is why we decided to work with JSSI.”
