Czech Airlines Technics (CSAT) has signed an agreement to carry out line maintenance work on A330s operated by Sichuan Airlines.
Under the terms of the contract, signed for an unlimited period of time, CSAT will conduct line maintenance for the aircraft servicing Sichuan’s new Prague to Chengdu route, which launches tomorrow (August 12).
Regular line maintenance services will include inspections according to the carrier’s instructions and assistance to the crew and ground personnel with their duties on apron areas.
Ad-hoc maintenance, such as defect repairs which must be fixed prior to a scheduled take-off, will include repairs of defects detected by the crew in-flight or during ground control.
The new agreement expands on previous cooperations between the parties, with CSAT carrying out line maintenance on Sinchuan charter flights in H1 2016.
Along with Sichuan, CSAT currently provides maintenance to China Airlines, Hainan Airlines and China Eastern Airlines.
Václav Řehoř, chairman of CSAT’s sole shareholder Czech Aeroholding, said: “CSAT is thus enhancing its status gained thanks also to its long-term quality work with the emphasis on pursuing high safety standards and adherence to deadlines.”
