July, 2012 – Chicago, IL -- Jet Support Services, Inc. (JSSI), the leading provider of hourly cost maintenance programs for the business aviation industry, will have members of their Technical Services team focused on supporting London business jet travelers during the Olympic Games, July 27 through August 12, 2012.
JSSI has more than 45 technical experts around the world who act as trustworthy maintenance advisers whenever JSSI clients are faced with an AOG (Aircraft on Ground) situation or need assistance arranging for maintenance and overhaul events. JSSI has teamed with Biggin Hill based Fixed Based Operator (FBO), Rizon Jet, to offer business jet operators free access to JSSI technical advisors for AOG assistance if needed while visiting Rizon Jet during the Olympic Games.
“We have the best technical team in the UK on stand-by 24 hours a day, ready to answer any AOG calls. We are committed to helping anyone in need, to ensure they get back in the air,” commented George Kleros, JSSI Senior Vice President, Technical Services Operations. “Having someone to call on that you can trust, no matter where you have a maintenance issue pop up is what JSSI is all about and this is a way for us to offer this experience to operators who aren’t familiar with JSSI,” added Kleros.
Qatar-based Rizon Jet’s European base has seen traffic increase threefold at its one-year-old VIP terminal at London’s Biggin Hill airport. Demand for private jet charters into the England capital has surged on the back of high profile events including the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics.
Rizon Jet Technical Services Director, Mike Clarke said: “We aim to surpass our customers’ expectations in all areas of our business. This collaboration with JSSI demonstrates our commitment to focusing on our customers’ requirements by providing special services using world-class professionals. We welcome existing JSSI customers to our operation at Biggin Hill, and also hope that others using our FBO will benefit from this unique partnership.”
Detailed flyers with JSSI AOG service contact information will be available at the Rizon Jet FBO in Biggin Hill. The JSSI AOG hotline is +44 1252 526588 and is always staffed 24/7 with a representative to assist operators and the JSSI European Headquarters is conveniently located at Farnborough Airport.
