Extended Service Goal (ESG)

Flight Operations | Applicability: Airbus fleet

Airbus Aircraft Family: A300 | A310 | A320 | A330 | A340

The  Extended Service Goal 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.



  • Earn additional revenue by flying your aircraft for longer
  • Increased re-marketability opportunity
