Adria Tehnika has signed a cooperation agreement with British airline easyJet. The agreement has been concluded for two years and covers works in the passenger cabin – reconfiguration of the cabin from 180 to 186 seats, the installation of a new galley and new lavatories. The aircraft will be worked on one after another during the winter timetable in the 2016/2017 and 2017/2018 seasons. There are at least 18 providers of such services in Europe, and easyJet has chosen four to perform these works – including Adria Tehnika. Gary Smith, easyJet Business Lead for the 186 seat cabin program, said »We are very pleased to have selected Adria Tehnika to take part in this important project. This is our first major project with Adria Tehnika; we were impressed by their depth of experience in A320 maintenance and we are keen to develop relationships with MROs that fit our requirements".

Its good reputation is the result of a highly-motivated and qualified staff, its commitment to quality and punctuality, competitive prices, and a favorable geographic location. »We are proud that one of the leading airlines has chosen Adria Tehnika to perform maintenance of its aircraft, which is sure proof of our quality of work at all levels. It is also an exceptional opportunity for the growth, development and improvement of our processes. We are therefore looking forward to this cooperation and believe that in the long run and with the exchange of good practices it will increase cooperation opportunities in other areas as well,« stated Maks Pele, Executive Director of Adria Tehnika.
