Jet Maintenance International (JMI) is to establish a UK base at London Oxford Airport at the beginning of May. The brand new £2m facility covers 16,000 sq. ft and offers bespoke external offices as well as dedicated customer parking.
With over 40 years combined experience in the business aviation sector, the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and aircraft management business will be overseen by Neil Plumb and Ed Griffith. Their focus will primarily be on providing Textron (Cessna) Citation and Dassault Falcon aircraft product support with line, base and AOG capabilities.
“We are delighted to have Neil and Ed set up this new MRO at Oxford,” said London Oxford Airport’s MD, Andi Alexander. Citing that the new facility will complement the other businesses already catering for helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft at the airport, he added: “With our great opening hours, competitive costs and hassle-free access with no slot, noise-related, weekend or capacity constraints, we hope Oxford will prove a popular choice for visiting aircraft for MRO support with JMI.”
Plumb, who was previously the general manager of a large MRO at Cranfield before setting up his own business managing and flying numerous business aircraft, remarked that “having operated out of London Oxford for over 20 years, the airport works very well geographically and from an ease-of-use perspective for our prospective clients, it is close to London but with sensible costs.”
