Jazz Aviation inks MRO deal with Air Georgian

Jazz Aviation has announced that it has signed a five-year heavy maintenance agreement with Air Georgian Limited of Mississauga. Under this contract Jazz's heavy maintenance business will perform the heavy maintenance repair and overhaul requirements for Air Georgian's fleet of CRJ100 and CRJ200 aircraft.

“We are very pleased that Air Georgian has chosen Jazz heavy maintenance as its CRJ100/200 repair and overhaul provider,” said Colin Copp, president, Jazz. “Jazz is well recognized in the industry as a high quality maintenance operator with skilled technicians and unmatched experience with Bombardier regional aircraft. This agreement represents a meaningful business opportunity to generate incremental revenue and to strengthen our competitive edge by reducing unit costs through organic growth.”

In the coming months, Jazz will further strengthen its market competitiveness by transitioning its heavy maintenance business to a separate division of Jazz. The new division, to be named Jazz Technical Services, will focus on the heavy maintenance, repair and overhaul of Bombardier aircraft. This dedicated focus will enable it to offer customers a disciplined, cost-management approach. It will also provide operational benefits and cost efficiencies, thereby creating opportunities to grow beyond the work it does today for Jazz.
