Westhampnett, United Kingdom, 10-Apr-2018 — /EuropaWire/ — Rolls-Royce has announced Jackson Square Aviation as a new customer for LessorCare, the pioneering new service tailored specifically to the needs of lessors.
Jackson Square Aviation will adopt LessorCare across its existing and future fleets of Trent-powered aircraft, drawing together a range of services under one simple, flexible and comprehensive framework. Rolls-Royce launched LessorCare in January with three customers.
Toby Bright, CEO, Jackson Square Aviation, said: “We are pleased to be a LessorCare partner and look forward to what this means for our relationship with Rolls-Royce.”
Dominic Horwood, Rolls-Royce, Director, Customers and Services – Civil Aerospace, said: “We are seeing a tremendous response to the launch of LessorCare and it is great to have another valued lessor on board. We are committed to delivering choice and flexibility in our CareServices and LessorCare is part of that approach.”
LessorCare comprises one single, comprehensive agreement for all Trent engine types, giving customers access to all the services that they need throughout the engine lifecycle. It allows lessors to pay for what they want when they need it. The benefits are faster and easier access, the incorporation of services today and for the future, and the maximising of possible return on investment.
LessorCare services include:
- Customer support – Rolls-Royce’s network of technical support, publications, and training to optimise responsiveness and keep aircraft earning revenue.
- Transitions services – a range of maintenance and availability services, to ensure aircraft move faster and more efficiently between leases. Services include engine maintenance and remarketing support.
- Asset management – a range of solutions that build on Rolls-Royce’s experience of working in close partnership with airlines worldwide to maximise engine values through their life-cycle. These solutions will include LifeKey which will be our enhanced form of OPERA (Operating Lessor Engine Restoration Agreement) that provides portability and liquidity for maintenance value.
Beyond these initial services, Rolls-Royce will continue to work with customers to develop LessorCare further, working towards even closer integration of aftermarket services and aircraft lease agreements.
