Air Canada takes seriously its mission to provide trouble-free, dependable service to its schedule of business, leisure and cargo customers. Determined to go beyond maintaining its record of reliability, the airline initiated a testing program to determine whether it could further minimize engine repair and maintenance costs to keep more flights on track.
Over four years, Air Canada worked with ExxonMobil’s aviation experts to conduct a rigorous program of commercial flight tests with Mobil Jet Oil 387 jet turbine oil. The team tested the product on a number of engine technologies, including GE Aviation’s CF6 and CF34 engines, and Pratt & Whitney’s PW4000 models.
ExxonMobil lubrication experts encouraged the airline to test Mobil Jet Oil 387 lubricant because it is formulated to:
- Withstand high operating temperatures compared to a Standard Type II oil
- Protect against coking while being gentle on elastomers*
- Provide deposit control and protection against coking in rear bearings to ensure that engines operate as efficiently as possible
- Protect integrated drive generators (IDGs) and auxiliary power units (APUs)
Given its ability to help streamline inventory and deliver a wide range of performance benefits, Air Canada followed ExxonMobil’s technical guidance and converted to Mobil Jet Oil 387 turbine oil as a fleetwide solution for its aircraft.
*Based on ExxonMobil laboratory data and documented experience from service evaluations in the same or related engine technologies.
More than 60,000 hours of extensive flight tests on both the CF6 and CF34 engines showed that Mobil Jet Oil 387 lubricant delivered outstanding engine cleanliness as well as exceptional seal compatibility. By minimizing engine repair and maintenance costs, Mobil Jet Oil 387 jet turbine oil helps keep more flights on track, which helps Air Canada deliver on its mission to provide customers with a reliable experience.
