easyJet has chosen Adria Tehnika as one of four companies to work on reconfiguring the cabins of its existing Airbus A320 aircraft over the next two years to accommodate 186 seats instead of the current 180.
As part of the reconfiguration, Adria Tehnika will also be installing the A320s with new galleys and lavatories. The aircraft will be worked on one after another during the winter timetable in the 2016/2017 and 2017/2018 seasons.
Gary Smith, easyJet’s business lead for the 186-seat cabin programme, remarked, “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.”
“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,” stated Maks Pele, executive director of Adria Tehnika. “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.”
