Business and regional aircraft MRO provider Jet Maintenance Solutions (Jet MS) is adding a line maintenance station at France’s Nice Côte d’Azur Airport.
Jet MS commented that the site was Europe’s leading airport for private aircraft take-offs for more than two years, and that it had recorded more than 2,050 private aircraft departures in 2020.
The company has established a dedicated team for line maintenance operations, including engineers, business development officials and sales managers. Additionally, Jet MS will offer mobile repair team services to surrounding airports in Cannes, Marseille and Toulon.
“By opening our doors to new clients in this picturesque city of the French Riviera, we are entering a new and demand-heavy market,” said Vytis Zalimas, CEO of Jet MS. “Having had over 2,050 movements even during the pandemic in 2020, the airport shows a strong demand for sophisticated private aircraft infrastructure. With a combination of our know-how, globally acclaimed reputation and leading balance of cost-effectiveness and quality, we are sure to have a strong foothold in this market. By being a part of Avia Solutions Group, which includes FL Technics, a global one-stop shop for MRO solutions boasting a portfolio of over 70 line stations across the globe, our shared know-how will allow us to reach our full potential when conducting line maintenance procedures at our station in Nice. With the successful beginning of operations at this location, we are already looking at more potential business aviation centres and FBO organisations where we could offer our services.”
Jet MS is positioned to perform routine checks and provide AOG support to business and regional aircraft. This comes on the back of plans to expand operations and meet market demand, through the opening of new line maintenance stations. The company plans to open a new line maintenance station in London, UK, in early autumn.
