The Airbus Corporate Jet Centre is building on its cabin completions success for the parent company's family of Airbus Corporate Jetliners (ACJ) by offering an innovative new services package tailored for VIP charter companies, corporate owners, government users and individual owners of these aircraft.
This package, designated the "VIP Pass," combines maintenance engineering and airworthiness services with the Airbus Corporate Jet Centreâ€™s ACJ Family technical expertise and a high-end maintenance information system.
"The VIP Pass provides customised services for the very specific needs of clients who - until now - have been offered technical services that may meet airline industry standards, but which are not adapted to operators of corporate jetliners," said Benoit Defforge, the Airbus Corporate Jet Centre's CEO.
ACJ customers will benefit from a full range of capabilities with the VIP Pass, including airframe maintenance, cabin and airframe spares, cabin upgrades and refurbishment, plus full engine support.
The VIP Pass currently is being fine-tuned with ACJ operators for a service entry in 2010. It will be offered for all Airbus corporate, executive, and private aviation aircraft, from the ACJ family to Airbus' widebody A330s and A340s.
"VIP Pass underscores our commitment of supporting Airbus aircraft throughout their lives to the highest standards," said Bruno Galzin, the Airbus Corporate Jet Centre's head of sales & marketing. "This offer is backed by our human-sized organisation with a highly skilled team that is focused on quality, rather than quantity. In addition, we benefit from the full resources of our Airbus shareholder."
The Airbus Corporate Jet Centre is located adjacent to Airbus' Toulouse, France production facilities, and is sized to accommodate VVIP cabin completions for three ACJs per year.
