03/27/2015 Liebherr-Aerospace and GoJet Airlines Extend Their Maintenance Services Agreement
Liebherr-Aerospace and GoJet Airlines have signed a five-year extension to a maintenance services agreement initiated in 2005. Hence, Liebherr-Aerospace will continue to maintain components of the integrated air management system (ATA 21, 25, 30, 36) on board the airline’s CRJ700/900 regional aircraft.
The agreement secures maintenance costs for the airline on a cost per flight hour basis and includes comprehensive performance and support guarantees. It also ensures access to a full rotable component inventory in support of GoJet’s daily operations. The services are performed by Liebherr Aerospace Saline, Inc., Saline, Michigan (USA) and Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS, Toulouse (France), the latter being the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) of the CRJ 700/900/1000 air management systems.
“Liebherr-Aerospace appreciates the fact that GoJet has seen the value of our services for the program over the last ten years and, more importantly, has elected to extend the contract,” stated Alex Vlielander, President of Liebherr Aerospace Saline, Inc.
