On June 21, 2018, in LOT Aircraft Maintenance Services (LOTAMS) hangar, the signing ceremony took place with Dutch KLM Cityhopper. The agreement covers base maintenance for the Embraer fleet.
The collaboration covers heavy maintenance for 26 Embraer E170 and E190 aircraft. The first aircraft maintenance was already carried out under the agreement and in the second half of the year further overhauls will be carried out simultaneously by three maintenance lines. Service performance in such a configuration will allow for a smooth and comprehensive implementation of maintenance covered by a signed agreement.
We are proud of the contract signed today. It proves that our facility is worldwide recognized. We have an inaugural maintenance behind us, and it has shown that we meet the expectations of our client. KLM Cityhopper’s aircraft will be served with equally strong commitment under the aegis of the excellent team of LOTAMS. I assure you, that we will do our best to ensure that our new client receives a service of the highest world level– said Miroslaw Galus, President of LOTAMS.
The choice of LOTAMS Warsaw base was not without reason. On 5t April 2012 the company signed an agreement with EAI, Embraer Aviation International SAS, obtaining the prestigious certificate “Embraer Authorized Service Centre”. The certificate issued by EAI confirms not only a high quality service and a short TAT (Turnaround Time), but also the opportunity to achieve new business prospects in the competitive market for servicing regional civilian aircraft. LOTAMS is the only technical base in Poland and Central Europe that has such distinction. As the Embraer Centre, LOTAMS systematically gains international recognition of clients from all over the world. Among the companies that trusted LOTAMS and entrusted it with the servicing of the Embraer fleet are LOT Polish Airlines, BA CityFlyer, Air Dolomiti Airlines, Montenegro Airlines, Air Moldova, and Air Burkina. Within 6 years, LOTAMS performed over 300 inspections of heavy aircraft types Embraer 145, 170 and 190.
I am very pleased with the collaboration, which is the result of the hard work of all LOTAMS employees. We are the world leader in the maintenance of Embraer aircraft. We are constantly developing and expanding our cluster of clients with the largest airlines in the world. Our dynamic growth is confirmed by the record-breaking, because as high as 42%, increase in sales on foreign clients, which we achieved last yearIn addition, we are constantly developing new product lines and building huge opportunities for the growth of LOTAMS in the next years – adds Rafał Momot, Member of the Board
