“Czech Airlines Technics is a company with a long tradition where unique high-level expertise go without saying and quality and safety are not subject to discussion, but a must. Becoming a part of such a company’s further growth and this team is a challenge for me as a manager and I therefore look forward to working at CSAT,”Igor Zahradníček, the new Vice-Chairman of the Czech Airlines Technics Board of Directors, said.
