Czech Airlines Technics (CSAT) has signed a new six-year agreement with fellow Czech carrier Travel Service to provide a range of landing gear services for its 19 737NG aircraft.
Under the terms of the contract, CSAT will cover Travel Service’s fleet with landing gear general repairs, lease of spare landing gear sets, exchanges of landing gear sets and repairs of selected aircraft components.
CSAT has provided the charter airline with landing gear services since 2011, during which it has completed 13 landing gear repairs through leasing spare landing gear sets from sub-contractors.
Václav Řehoř, chairman of the Czech Aeroholding Board of Directors, the sole shareholder of Czech Airlines Technics, said CSAT now owns its own landing gear spare sets, which will enable it to better cater to customer needs and better use of its capacity.
Along with landing gear services, CSAT has also provided Travel Service with base maintenance since 2006, and has completed more than 70 jobs during this period.
It has also completed structural aircraft repairs, component maintenance, composite repairs and material and tool lease.
