Philippe Petitcolin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Snecma (Safran group), and Benoit Defforge, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Airbus Corporate Jet Centre (ACJC), signed an EngineLife(r) agreement with Snecma to propose full engine service support for CFM International CFM56-5B engines to its VIP, corporate and government customers.

This full support for Airbus Corporate Jet engines includes Engine Condition Monitoring (ECM), shop visits, Foreign Object Damage (FOD) protection, Line Replaceable Unit (LRU) pool access and repair, and spare engine availability. The service will help to maintain the value of the aircraft, under a long term transferable contract.

"We are proud of this long term partnership that is in line with the demand of ACJ customers who look for a single partner able to provide nose to tail support. ACJC and Snecma's combined expertise offers Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) reliability and quality" says Benoit Defforge, CEO of Airbus Corporate Jet Centre.

"Snecma is delighted by the signature of this partnership with ACJC. It is designed to answer ACJ operator demands, by proposing a dedicated team and support services package based on a flight hour rate to allow better planning for engine maintenance costs", says Philippe Petitcolin, CEO of Snecma.

This agreement is the fruit of over a year of discussions between Snecma and ACJC to craft a creative EngineLife(r) agreement that delivers reliability and simplicity for Airbus Corporate Jet users, guaranteeing optimal operation of their aircraft.
