aero-dienst celebrates opening of new line station at klagenfurt airport
February 5, 2018
Aero-Dienst received final approval for its Maintenance Line Station at Kärnten Airport in Klagenfurt in November.
This is a new step for Aero-Dienst towards extending its service network for various aircraft models manufactured by Challenger, Falcon, Global and Hawker, following on from the opening of the line station in Vienna (2006). In Klagenfurt, Aero-Dienst’s experienced team of technicians carries out scheduled maintenance, warranty repairs as well as unscheduled maintenance work. The scope of performance is rounded off by the 24/7 AOG service (Aircraft On Ground).
Following receipt of official approval by the Luftfahrt-Bundesamt (LBA, German CAA) in November, the Maintenance Line Station has now been ceremonially opened on 29th January. Aero-Dienst invited the Managing Director of Kärnten Airport and a number of local customers to the official opening.
In the business aviation, regional airports are important for the mobility and flexibility of internationally active companies. Therefore Aero-Dienst with its international licenses is a reliable local partner for a wide range of business jet models. Approval from many national and international aviation authorities such as EASA Part 145, FAA Part 145, Bermuda, Canada, the Cayman Islands, Nigeria, Russia/GUS, Turkey and Ukraine plays an important role here as well.
“When a maintenance operation at Kärnten Airport closed down, that gave us the opportunity to take over the facilities including hangar space. This has the advantage that we are now in a position to provide significantly more flexible and fast service to our long-term customers at this location,” says Christian Weigl, Manager of the Vienna and Klagenfurt Maintenance Line Stations.
André Ebach, Head of Maintenance at Aero-Dienst, Nuremberg, adds: “Opening a new line station underlines the importance of the Austrian market, centrally located as it is for our service network.”
