Jet Aviation Basel and AJW Aviation Partner to Develop Global Component Support and AOG Platform for Airbus ACJ and Boeing Business Jet Customers

GENEVA / Switzerland, May 20 2014 – Jet Aviation Basel and AJW Aviation recently signed an agreement to cooperate in developing component support and AOG programmes for mutual Airbus ACJ and Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) customers — wherever they fly worldwide.

To ensure availability of aircraft components when and where needed, Jet Aviation Basel and AJW Aviation are joining forces to establish a specialised component support and global AOG service for Airbus and Boeing business jet operators and owners.

Jet Aviation is unique in its global reach and scope of services, including dedicated AOG teams responding 24/7 to emergency situations worldwide. AJW maintains award-winning Airbus and Boeing spares inventories at global hubs across Europe, Middle East, Asia, Canada and the Americas for almost 500 Airbus and Boeing aircraft — equivalent to operational backing for the world’s eighth largest airline. Together, the companies will offer a truly exceptional component support and AOG service that delivers the same peace of mind enjoyed by global airlines employing AJW’s power-by-the-hour commercial fleet support service.

“Continuity of care in business aviation is an important service differentiator and we strive to deliver consistently reliable on-going support for our global customer base,” explains Joerg Bortoluzzi, Senior Manager, Procurement & Direct Sales Maintenance, Jet Aviation Basel. “AJW has an outstanding reputation in an intensely competitive market. We are very pleased to partner with them to improve our ability to help customers recover from AOG events quickly.”

“Our goal is to ensure quality permeates every aspect of our business and the customer experience,” says Boris Wolstenholme, Chief Executive Officer, AJW Aviation. “This partnership represents a real win-win, world-class solution. Jet Aviation Basel is an Authorized Service Centre for Airbus and Boeing, supporting our customers with the highest business aviation standards. We are highly motivated to partner with them and provide access to our extensive global inventories to help ensure a pre-eminent standard of customer care.”
