DAYTON, Ohio – PSA Airlines, a wholly owned subsidiary of American Airlines, announced its plans to open a new maintenance base operation at Pensacola International Airport (PNS). PSA’s immense fleet expansion necessitates additional locations to support the maintenance and reliability of its growing fleet. The operation at PNS will mark PSA’s eighth maintenance facility, joining Akron-Canton Airport (CAK), Charlotte-Douglas International Airport (CLT) Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG), Dayton International Airport (DAY), Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP), Norfolk International Airport (ORF), and Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV).

“The addition of PNS will enhance PSA’s reliability, provide much needed flexibility in meeting our maintenance program requirements, and ensure we meet our planned capture rate as we continue to grow,” said Gary Pratt, Vice President – Maintenance & Engineering, PSA Airlines.

PSA plans to employ 30-35 team members to include mechanics, leads, inspectors and stores personnel. PNS is an ideal location for PSA to add to its network of facilities, providing greater facility flexibility for a terminal operation.

PNS has been identified as a sustainable workforce location with the presence of local military and the abundance of technical schools within the state. PSA is looking for the best and brightest to join the top maintenance workforce in the regional industry. The airline offers top-of-industry pay for A&P mechanics and prospective candidates can look forward to working for a rapidly growing airline where they can advance their career in maintenance.

PSA expects to open the maintenance operation in October 2018. For more information about the positions PSA will be filling at its PNS base operation, please visit
