Case studies

Skywards managed to save...

We were contacted by the management team of an Internationally know entrepreneur and business owner. The management team had been given the brief by their employer to take a careful look at the operational costs of his Private Jet operation as it was his belief that he was paying too much in non flying hours costs. After several meetings it was decided that Skywards would carry out a cost saving audit on the full range of costs associated with the operation of a Private/ Business Jet.

We looked at the full range of costs including maintenance, crew costs, hangarage, parking, fuel uplift as well as outsourced operational management and even down to the small items such as catering and on-board water servicing.

 

..our client a total of 480k per year!

After an extensive five month project, Skywards had managed to establish that various cost savings were indeed possible. The owner was now in a position to decide, whether to continue with the Aircraft he had, or look for a newer more cost effective model.

All options were looked at with various aircraft being put forward. The owner in conclusion decided to stay with the model he had become used to and furthermore decided to implement most of the cost saving changes that were suggested by Skywards. By implementing the savings the annual saving to the owner would be £480,000.

In conclusion, the owner (our client) was happy with the savings highlighted to him, he implemented those which he thought were necessary and was happy with the service provided by Skywards.
