“Being a start-up airline, we had been obviously looking for a trusted EASA certified maintenance partner with European standards and modern technological background to start our operations, which led us to choosing FL Technics,” says Hassen Aissaoui, Technical & Airworthiness Director of Express Air Cargo.

“It is great to welcome a yet another airline from the MENA region to our geographically expanding client list,” commented Zilvinas Lapinskas, CEO of FL Technics. “We are constantly seeking to extend our client network that already includes companies from Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas. With the airline business being as volatile as ever, every MRO, FL Technics included, is concerned with the diversification of its client and service portfolios in order to overcome any instability in the industry.”

“While eagerly awaiting the EASA certification to bring the first big names to our hangar in Indonesia, we have managed to attract multiple new base maintenance customers with our improved process management systems in our European base. We have developed our own IT systems designed to ensure that our clients and engineers can keep track of all the works and man-hours in real time, helping to timely detect and handle potential delays along the way,” explains Juozas Lapeika, the Deputy CEO for Production Management. “Furthermore, our new online system allows the maintenance unit to receive authorization regarding additional parts or works directly from the client, saving valuable time, minimizing aircraft downtime and improving the overall client-MRO communication.”
