Business aviation provider Alpha Star Aviation in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, has signed on to a Honeywell maintenance service plan (MSP) for auxiliary power units, avionics, and mechanical components on its Gulfstream G450 fleet.

Alpha Star’s five G450s will be maintained by Honeywell over the next five years. The company utilizes Honeywell Forge to provide a continuous flow of cabin network, satcom equipment, and ground network data. Honeywell also has previously supported Alpha Star’s G450 fleet on a service plan that covered parts and labor.

“Honeywell’s maintenance service plan enables us to accurately allocate a budget and plan for aftermarket repair and maintenance—unplanned and scheduled maintenance—in advance,” said Alpha Star CEO Abdulnaser Alkheraif.

Nadya Krishko, senior director of business aviation for the EMEA region for Honeywell Aerospace, added that MSPs “help remove the financial uncertainty from future repairs and maintenance. We are proud to provide customers, like Alpha Star, with customizable maintenance options that keep aircraft operating efficiently while making it easy for our customers to control the unexpected.”
