Spirit Airlines is to support Global Crossing Airlines’ (GlobalX) fleet of A320 and A321 aircraft, after the companies signed an initial agreement.
Spirit will provide on-call and line maintenance for GlobalX, including daily and weekly checks.
The contract will begin in December when GlobalX expects to take delivery of its first A320 and A321 aircraft.
GlobalX’s vice president of tech ops Chris Toro said: “We are very pleased to be working with Spirit and have them support us, particularly through the final stages of our certification as we get ready to fly our A320 aircraft in proving runs for our flag carrier certificate.
“We expect to learn from their best practices in A320 maintenance.”
Spirit Airlines’ vice president of technical operations Kirk Thornburg commented: “We look forward to supporting GlobalX through their certification and as they begin revenue charter operations both at Miami International Airport and at select Spirit maintenance stations.”
