Inflite The Jet Centre Awarded Rolls-Royce Authorised Service Centre Status
Inflite The Jet Centre, part of the Inflite group of companies, based at London Stansted Airport, announces it has received Authorised Service Centre status from Rolls-Royce to support the engines that power Embraer’s Legacy 600 and 650 business jets.
Effective immediately, Inflite will deliver the OEM’s CorporateCare® and CorporateCare Enhanced MRO services to the Rolls-Royce AE 3007, covering line maintenance and power-by-the-hour support.
The OEM’s CorporateCare, the comprehensive, fixed-cost engine-maintenance management program, protects against unforeseen costs and unscheduled events anywhere in the world and reduces the administrative burdens for operators, freeing them up to focus on their day-to-day business. Inflite is making investment in parts and training in support of the contract. It is also adding personnel, with an initial four Rolls-Royce-trained technicians moving over to its London Stansted facility this month.
“We are delighted to have won this endorsement from the prestigious aviation brand that is Rolls-Royce. Over the last few years, we have invested considerably in our facilities and manpower and are delighted to take this contract on,” says Christoffer Creutz, managing director of Inflite, who joined the business two years ago from Lufthansa Technik.
“We are looking forward to working closely with Rolls-Royce and their customers as we continue to evolve and grow our business, newly bolstered with the arrival of Excellence Aviation,” says InFlite head of Customer Service, Alan Barnes.
Andy Robinson, SVP Services - Business Aviation, Rolls-Royce, says, “As the leading supplier of business aircraft engines, our customers trust in us to deliver outstanding in-service support. Our collaboration with the world’s most experienced maintenance providers ensures industry-leading service levels for our growing global CorporateCare customer base.”
Housed in a new, dedicated home within Inflite’s 250,000-square-foot hangar space, Excellence Aviation Services is expanding into full base-maintenance at Stansted under Inflite ownership, specializing in Global Express and Challenger aircraft.
The deal further strengthens Inflite’s long-standing partnership with Embraer Aircraft, which first commenced in 2011. The independent MRO, which marks its 30th anniversary this year, is Embraer’s largest authorized service center for the EMEA region, supporting Phenom, Legacy and Lineage models.
Rolls-Royce will formalize the new agreement with InFlite with the presentation of a plaque during EBACE on May 22 at 11:45 AM on Stand X115. Photographers and reporters welcome.
