Jordan Aviation has marked a new achievement after JAV Technic (Professional for Aircraft Maintenance), a member company of the Jordan Aviation group, was awarded the European Union Aviation Safety Agency’s (EASA) Part-145 certification.

This accreditation is one of the most prestigious EASA awards, adhering to a model of excellence comprising high performance evaluation standards.

The certification places JAV Technic as a pioneer in the field of aircraft maintenance services and is one of few institutions that have received such a distinction, accompanied by many others that company has earned throughout its journey.

With this certificate, the company has the official capacity to repair aircraft registered in Europe and planes from around the world recognised as having met European standards, which provides the Kingdom with a new source of income from hard currencies.

There is a need to train more airplane maintenance engineers and recruit more employees to keep up with the company’s commercial expansion.

Over 200 engineers and aircraft mechanics currently work at the company but the number is expected to increase to over 300 in 2019 and 2020.

Jordan Aviation is owned entirely by the Jordanian private sector through local investments. It was founded in 1998 as the first private-sector aviation company in the Arab World. The company currently owns 14 Airbus and Boeing airplanes and employs close to 1000 people through the companies in its group.
