Extended Service Goal upgrades can allow Airbus operators to increase the operational lifetime of their aircraft in terms of flight hours and flight cycles. This can bring up to 10 years or more of additional revenue service above the initial design objectives.
In simple terms, when an aircraft is approaching the Design Service Goal limitation the owner has a choice. They may choose to withdraw the aircraft from service or they may wish to invest in the Extended Service Goal program.
The Extended Service Goal will enable customers to earn additional revenue by flying their aircraft for longer, as well as benefiting from the increased residual value of their Airbus fleet. In addition, operators will have the opportunity to upgrade their fleet to keep in-service aircraft at the highest level of efficiency. We encourage customers to consider their fleet planning at an early stage in order to achieve the Extended Service Goal in the most cost efficient manner.
