Austrian Airlines has renewed a contract with Czech Airlines Technics (CSAT) to perform base maintenance on 13 Airbus A320 family aircraft.
The overhauls will be carried out at CSAT’s Hangar F facility at Prague Airport. Six will be performed this season, the company said, with seven more in the following year.
“Pursuing the course of our long-term strategy, we confirm further co-operation with an important aircraft base maintenance customer,” commented CSAT chairman of the board of directors Pavel Haleš.
“Last year, we won several new clients, and we continue to work for our long-term partners from airlines and leasing companies this year. Following that, our hangar capacity is fully booked for the ongoing base maintenance season.
“We build on our 2019 co-operation with the Austrian national carrier, member of the Lufthansa Group, which will continue thanks to the new long-term agreement at least until 2023. We value the fact that Austrian Airlines has chosen Czech Airlines Technics and our services once again.”
Austrian Airlines’ chief operational officer Francesco Sciortino said: “To ensure that our aircraft always complies with the highest standards on safety and security we focus on long standing, regional cooperation with trusted partners. We are pleased to be able to renew our agreement with Czech Airlines Technics for another two years.”
