Airbus Corporate Jet Centre Signs its First CAMO Contract with Asian Customer

Toulouse, France -- Following its recent approval last May by EASA as a Continuous Airworthiness Management Organisation (CAMO), Airbus Corporate Jet Centre has signed its first contract with an Asian customer.

This new contract will ensure the management of the continuous airworthiness services on this Airbus corporate jet, including:

* Aircraft configuration management
* MMEL and OMP development
* Maintenance planning preparation and updates
* Service Bulletin (SB) recommendation and Airworthiness Directive (AD) follow-up
* Work-package preparation for line maintenance and hangar checks

This contract comes in addition to the client’s signature for the design and outfitting of his new ACJ319 led by Sylvain Mariat, Head of Design Studio at Airbus Corporate Jet Centre.

As a fully owned subsidiary of Airbus, Airbus Corporate Jet Centre is certificated to perform Part 145 maintenance on the full Airbus corporate jet family under EASA approval, and a growing number of foreign authorities’ approvals - including those of Aruba, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Ukraine and, recently, Russia.

Airbus Corporate Jet Centre

Dedicated to providing quality cabin-outfitting and innovative packages of customised 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 270 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 thirteen ACJ cabins. Including former EADS Sogerma deliveries, Airbus Corporate Jet Centre is now the world leader for ACJ319/ACJ320 VIP cabin completion, having delivered 24 VIP cabins for Airbus aircraft.

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, in 2009 the company launched VIP Pass, a package of nose-to-tail services developed for executive and private operators of Airbus corporate jets.
