The Airbus Corporate Jet Centre (ACJC), the specialist in Airbus Corporate Jet VIP cabin completion and customised nose-to-tail services, has successfully signed the first customized package entirely dedicated to ACJ operators with Russia SFD, the operator of two federal state ACJs recently delivered by the Airbus’ subsidiary.
Airbus Corporate Jet Centre innovates on the business aviation market, signing with the Russian operator a unique and comprehensive nose-to-tail long term maintenance agreement called “VIP Pass”.
“Unlike traditional MROs support solutions based on airline standards, ACJC “VIP Pass” is the only total support solution provided by an Airbus subsidiary which delivers comprehensive, customized, reliable and cost effective solution fully dedicated to the ACJ operators’ specific needs”, declares Bruno Galzin, Head of ACJC Sales & Marketing.
Airbus Corporate Jet Centre addresses all the maintenance needs of any ACJ operator (corporate, private or governmental), through a package of services which provides a simple answer to a complex subject, and delivers:
- flexible solutions, covering ACJ operators full range of needs, from “last minute call” maintenance events to a full support agreement;
- cost effective solutions and predictable maintenance costs;
- single source for all aircraft maintenance and cabin upgrades;
- fully integrated service from an Airbus company.
“Airbus Corporate Jet Centre’s teams have successfully completed our cabins, thus the decision to add the support of our ACJs was the next logical step, based on strong relationships, useful on such a long-term maintenance contract”, says the contractual partner.
“With the VIP Pass, our clients’ asset value is protected, keeping their aircraft flying, especially in case of unscheduled events”, says Benoit Defforge, CEO of Airbus Corporate Jet Centre. “This comprehensive and flexible total support package dedicated to ACJ operators distinguishes ACJC in the corporate jet market through several commitments for the benefit of our ACJ customers. This innovative way of supporting our clients on a long-term relationship with competitive prices is part of our commitment to the highest quality & excellence”.
The Airbus Corporate Jet Centre’s VIP Pass is an open suite of seven customizable services which covers scheduled and unscheduled maintenance in a single package. With the ACJC’s VIP Pass, ACJ operators can tailor their own package, reflecting their support strategy, around the following services:
1. System upgrade and cabin refurbishment
2. Airframe maintenance
3. Engine and nacelle full support
4. Spares management (pool & repair)
5. Airworthiness & maintenance engineering services

Airbus Corporate Jet Centre
Dedicated to providing quality cabin-outfitting and innovative packages of customized nose-to-tail services for Airbus ACJ family aircraft, the Airbus Corporate Jet Centre (ACJC) is small enough to provide personal service to customers, with around 250 employees, but is also backed by the full resources of its shareholder, Airbus, the world's largest manufacturer of modern airliners.
Based in Toulouse, France, ACJC has already contracted with prestigious customers in Asia, Europe and the Middle East. It attributes its success to a strong technical background, plus highly skilled employees that have now completed 23 VIP cabins for Airbus aircraft, including former EADS Sogerma deliveries. The Airbus Corporate Jet Centre also specialises in tailor-made services and maintenance for ACJs, including the A320, A330 and A340 families. Increasing its teams and the capacity of its facilities, the company launched VIP Pass, a package of nose-to-tail services developed for executive and private operators of Airbus corporate jets.
