PRAGUE - The high quality of the services provided has earned Czech Airlines Technics (CSAT) long-term co-operation with Transavia Airlines. The new maintenance agreement, in effect from the beginning of September, also includes the new A320Neo type of aircraft and covers the co-operation over the next five years, i.e., until 31 August 2027.
“The next season starts on 1 November 2022. We believe that it will be as successful as the previous ones. We are still ready to provide Transavia with up to three of our maintenance lines during each operational season, which is why we have been Transavia’s first choice, i.e., the preferred base maintenance company,” Petr Doberský, Chairman of the Czech Airlines Technics Board of Directors, said.
Over the past years of co-operation, Czech Airlines Technics has performed for Transavia various level overhauls during 267 aircraft visits. “We have to highlight the excellent nature of our co-operation both at the management level of the two companies, and on the premises of our hangar, where our maintenance managers meet with the technical representatives of our client during the maintenance season. The above-standard personal relations of both parties certainly contribute to the successful course of the base maintenance visits,” Petr Doberský added.
Robert-Jan Korenromp, Transavia’s Head of Fleet & Technical Services, said on the occasion: “Over the years, CSAT has proven a reliable partner delivering quality maintenance, flexibility, and good co-operation at all levels. We are happy to extend our long-standing good co-operation for another five years.”
In 2023, CSAT will celebrate 20 years of co-operation with the Dutch carrier Transavia Airlines. The company is owned by KLM and is a member of the Air France – KLM Group. Its main base is Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, with other bases at the Dutch airports in Rotterdam and Eindhoven. Transavia has launched another base in Brussels this year. Currently, the fleet of Transavia Airlines has nearly fifty aircraft, all of the Boeing 737NG type. Next year, the gradual renewal of the fleet and the transition to Airbus A320Neo aircraft will commence. The process is planned over the next eight to ten years.
