Air Serbia has established a new technical division, Air Serbia Technical, at Belgrade's Nikola Tesla Airport.

Operating seven days a week and staffed by a team of 20 aircraft engineers and 20 mechanics, the engineering facility is equipped with the latest technology and will perform all scheduled and non-scheduled line maintenance for Air Serbia's fleet of Airbus A319/320 aircraft.

Air Serbia Technical will also provide line maintenance services for Etihad Airways and Etihad Regional aircraft operating from Belgrade, and in an exciting development, will have capability to deliver dedicated maintenance services for third party airlines operating from Belgrade.

The maintenance services to be performed in Belgrade include transit, daily and weekly checks, scheduled and non-scheduled engineering services, along with fault repairs for aircraft systems and cabin issues.

Chief Executive Officer of Air Serbia Dane Kondić said: "The demand for specialised aircraft maintenances services is on the rise, and the establishment of Air Serbia Technical was a logical step to meet this growing demand. Our new maintenance facility and the capability to provide cost-effective maintenance services to other airlines will further strengthen the scale of Air Serbia's growing operations, reinforcing our position as one of the leading airlines in the region. Employing a team of highly-skilled and experienced professionals and using the most sophisticated technology and equipment in the aviation industry, the new facility will assist Air Serbia to continue its rate of expansion and improve punctuality and performance of our aircraft".

Air Serbia Technical is certified by the Civil Aviation Directorate of Serbia.
