The maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) specialists, Czech Airlines Technics (CSAT), has announced the renewal of its base maintenance agreement with Finnair. The airline is already one of CSAT’s major customers and the contract extension will run for three years with an option for additional three years.

The deal means that CSAT will continue to provide base maintenance checks and repairs for the carrier’s Airbus A320 Family fleet inside its hangar F facility located at Václav Havel Airport Prague (PRG).

Last year, the Czech company completed a two-year cabin modification and Wi-Fi network installation project for Finnair’s fleet of 24 Airbus narrow-body aircraft. This was the industry’s first connectivity retrofit with the aircraft manufacturer, Airbus.

Sampo Paukkeri, Head of Aircraft Maintenance at Finnair, commented: “We have been very pleased to work with CSAT, who have a proven track record for quality and on-time performance. The new base maintenance agreement enables us to further develop our processes together and strengthen our co-operation, to ensure our narrow-body Airbus fleet is always reliable and safe for operations.”
