CSAT ADDS EXTRA MAINTENANCE LINE bookmark

Czech Airlines Technics (CSAT) has launched a fifth base maintenance line for Boeing 737, Airbus A320 Family and ATR aircraft this autumn, increasing workload capacity by 25%. The company has invested in Hangar F, located on Václav Havel Airport Prague, including docking and material supplies, and is hiring about 80 more employees.

 

Pavel Haleš, Chairman of the CSAT Board of Directors, said: “We have entered into several exclusive long-term agreements with guaranteed work volumes in the field of aircraft base maintenance. The existing capacity is fully booked for years, so the decision to increase the capacity is a logical step to ensure the company’s ability to grow further. Existing customers keep gradually increasing the number of aircraft in their fleets, so we have been growing with them.”

 

The process of hiring about 80 new employees started at the beginning of the year and will include training. In the long term, the exclusive cooperation with the Secondary School of Civil Aviation in Prague/Ruzyne will help recruit new employees. The goal of the cooperation and scholarship programme, now in its second year, is to guarantee students jobs immediately after graduation.

 

This is the second capacity increase in the area of aircraft base maintenance, due to the full use of the existing capacity – the company launched a fourth base maintenance production line in 2015.
