From November 2022, the Ostrava company JOB AIR Technic will take care of the maintenance and repairs of the A‑319CJ aircraft of the Czech Air Force. These machines are used by politicians and athletes. They can be used to evacuate Czech citizens from crisis areas, or to transport soldiers to missions.
JOB AIR TECHNIC WILL MAINTAIN ARMY AIRBUS FOR THE NEXT 7 YEARS
The service contract between the aircraft repair shops located at the airport in Ostrava-Mošnov and the Ministry of Defense of the Czech Republic was concluded for seven years. The estimated financial performance will amount to 70 million dollars. The signing of the contract was preceded by a tender procedure according to the Public Procurement Act.
The subject of the contract is the complete operation and service support of the A319CJ aircraft by JOB AIR Technic, apart from basic line maintenance. It specifically concerns maintenance and repairs, airworthiness management of both machines, security and maintenance of spare parts, provision of technical assistance and other services needed to ensure the operation of aircraft, including training of aircraft crews and technical personnel.
"We greatly appreciate the success in this selection process. We see it as recognition of the quality of our services, and at the same time as a very valuable reference. It is also of course great that the Czech Ministry has chosen a Czech supplier to provide these services, and aircraft maintenance will therefore take place on the territory of the Czech Republic," says Vladimír Stulancak, director of JOB AIR Technic aircraft repair facilities, and adds: "We benefited from the success of this tender our effort to become a partner of Airbus, with whom we concluded a framework agreement last fall."
