Mesa Airlines signs contract to procure ExxonMobil aviation lubricants across fleet

  • Mesa Airlines has signed a 5-year contract with Boeing and ExxonMobil to use Mobil Jet™ Oil II and Mobil™ HyJet™ IV-Aplus for its fleet of over 160 aircraft.
  • Mesa Airlines is a regional air carrier headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona that provides scheduled passenger service to over 100 cities.
  • The contract with ExxonMobil allows Mesa Airlines to simplify its supply chain, achieve more efficient operations, and avoid fluctuation in prices over time.

SPRING, TexasExxonMobil announced today that Mesa Airlines signed a 5-year contract with Boeing Distribution Inc. (formerly Aviall) to procure ExxonMobil aviation lubricants across its entire fleet. Mesa Airlines, which will use Mobil Jet™ Oil II and Mobil™ HyJet™ IV-Aplus for its fleet of over 160 aircraft, cited the ability to stabilize price points and simplify its supply chain with a reliable supplier as a key reason for entering the contract.

As a regional air carrier that operates in over 100 cities, Mesa Airlines was looking to reduce its expenditures and simplify its supply chain to avoid the fluctuation of prices over time. Specifically, with current events driving price increases across every industry’s supply chain, the airline’s procurement team wanted to find a way to stabilize price points, eliminate exposure to impacts of inflation, and secure a dependable source of product so the airline could focus on maximizing profits.

To achieve these goals, Mesa Airlines’ partner, Boeing Distribution Inc. (formerly Aviall), recommended a contract with ExxonMobil based on its reputation as a reliable supplier with quality products that could meet Mesa Airlines’ price and on-time delivery demands. ExxonMobil’s proven industry leadership and trustworthy supply capabilities gave Mesa Airlines extra confidence in its decision to procure ExxonMobil aviation lubricants across its fleet.

  • Mobil Jet™ Oil II is a high-performance, synthetic aircraft-type gas turbine lubricant formulated for reliable performance. With close to six decades of flight experience, it has accrued over 5 billion hours of on-wing performance.
  • Mobil™ HyJet™ IV-Aplus is a fire-resistant Type IV phosphate ester aviation hydraulic fluid that offers performance capabilities at levels close to those of Type V fluids. This hydraulic fluid is the lowest density Type IV fluid commercially available.

“Forming strategic partnerships is the goal of every major company as this gives us the ability to forecast costs over years versus months and maintain some control in a world where no industry supply chain is safe from price inflation,” said John Bacon, Jr., Vice President, Supply Chain at Mesa Airlines. “ExxonMobil and Boeing bring an industry reputation that is of top tier quality, and we’re already seeing what a relationship with a reliable supplier like ExxonMobil can do for our business.”

Under the new contract, ExxonMobil has had a 100% success rate with on-time deliveries of aviation lubricants to Mesa Airlines, which has had a tremendous positive impact on their maintenance department. Having the contract in place allows the maintenance department to focus on other priorities and not worry about work stoppages due to lack of supplies.

“ExxonMobil is committed to providing reliable aviation lubrication solutions at a great cost and delivered on time,” said Osman Durrani, ExxonMobil Global Aviation Sales Director. “We are excited to work with Mesa Airlines to help simplify its supply chain and achieve more efficient operations.”
