Czech Airlines Technics (CSAT), a daughter company of the Czech Aeroholding Group, entered into an agreement with China Eastern Airlines.
CSAT will thus provide line maintenance for aircraft servicing the new Prague – Shanghai route.
Since September 2015, CSAT has been providing line maintenance for Hainan Airlines and its plan is to start providing the same service for Sichuan Airlines this year.
China Eastern Airlines is launching a new regular direct scheduled service between Prague and Shanghai on 23 June 2016. From this date, CSAT will provide China Eastern Airlines with line maintenance of its Airbus A330 and, eventually, Boeing B767 and B777, arriving in Prague on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
