European jet taxi operator Wijet has extended its maintenance support agreement with Gama Aviation indefinitely.

The deal covers base, line and AOG maintenance support for Wijet’s fleet of 15 Cessna Mustang entry-level business jets, the largest such fleet in Europe.

Wijet offers on-demand service to more than 1,200 airports in Europe and North Africa, using the four-passenger twinjets.

“Over the last six months, we have worked hard with the Wijet team to ensure we meet their exacting standards and deliver high levels of aircraft availability,” said Gama CEO Marwan Khalek. “The extension of the contract after a successful initial period demonstrates we have met, if not exceeded the expectations of Wijet, who operate in a highly competitive commercial space, where aircraft downtime has to be minimized, safely.”

Meanwhile, Gama also inked two new maintenance support agreements with European fleet operators this week. The deals cover 10 aircraft - five Bombardier Globals, two Bombardier Challengers, two Hawkers and a Beechjet - for services that range from inspections to AOG support for the two fleets. Gama said it will support both of these operators through its European jet maintenance team at Oxford Airport in the UK.
