Serbian MRO Jat Tehnika has achieved EASA Part-145 approval for line and base maintenance activities on the Superjet 100 (SSJ100) regional aircraft.
Under the terms of the certification, granted by the European regulator on Nov.12, the maintenance provider will carry out services at its main facilities at Belgrade's Nikola Tesla airport while also conducting line services across its network.
The aircraft's Russian manufacturer Superjet International will assist the MRO with necessary personnel training, spare parts and materials and technical services.
Miroslav Musulin, CEO of Jat Tehnika, says the approval is a continuation of the company's strategy to get certified for repairs on new aircraft types, which include the Boeing 737 Max and the Airbus A320neo.
Jat originallly grew out of Yugoslav Airlines and was created on Jan. 1, 2006, as a separate MRO. Its offerings include maintenance services for 737 Classic and NG line and base maintenance, up to SI checks; ATR 42 and 72 line and heavy checks; and A320 line and heavy checks.
