FL Technics and Wizz Air have signed an agreement covering partnership for base maintenance solutions with a planned start of services in July 2022. Based on the agreement, FL Technics will be providing heavy maintenance services for Wizz Air Airbus A320/A321 CEO and NEO fleet, including both, planned heavy maintenance checks as well as short-heavy maintenance visits. A four-year contract, with extension possibility, was signed at the beginning of November and is yet another major partnership development between the two organisations, in addition to the existing long-term cooperation focused on the line maintenance services.
Julia Brix, Head of Technical Services for Wizz Air Group, said: “Wizz Air continues the strong growth path in this decade to offer affordable travel opportunities to our customers. FL Technics’ competitive cost base, operational flexibility and high service and performance quality gave us the confidence to award Base Maintenance Services to FL Technics. We are looking forward to starting this cooperation and continuing the successful joint growth path in the next years.”
Juozas Lapeika, deputy CEO for production at FL Technics, said: “This contract demonstrates our commitment to being the leading and most innovative MRO service provider in terms of quality and efficiency. And there is no better way to achieve the goal than partnering with a leading low-cost carrier such as Wizz Air, renowned for its’ focus on effective services and quality processes. I trust this partnership will be a wonderful opportunity to leverage our MRO expertise and support Wizz Air in their operations and growth, while maintaining one of the Europe’s leading low-cost airline fleet.”
