Czech Airlines Technics (CSAT) has entered into an agreement to provide Dutch low-cost carrier Transavia Airlines with base maintenance services for its Boeing 737 fleet.
The new contract, which will see CSAT exclusively provide services, will run until September 2022 for Transavia’s 44-aircraft fleet, comprised of eight -700 variants and 36 -800s.
The agreement expands on a non-exclusive maintenance contract between the two parties, which ran for four years and is due to expire this month.
It includes all planned revisions and occasional irregular tasks, including fixing defects and repairing damage to aircraft bodies.
According to CSAT chairman Pavel Haleš, despite the previous contract being non-exclusive, CSAT was awarded 100% of all scheduled aircraft maintenance jobs over the past two seasons.
Speaking about the new agreement, Haleš said: “We expect to provide base maintenance for about 18 aircraft per season.
The exact numbers will be specified at a later date. The season starts in September or October.”
