October 10, 2017: The Bedek Aviation Group of Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has signed line maintenance and technical services agreement with Wizz Air, a Hungarian low-cost airline. The agreement covers an extensive range of aircraft maintenance services that will be carried out at IAI's campus near Tel-Aviv International Airport. The maintenance services will be carried out by Bedek's Aircraft Division.
Yosef Melamed, EVP and general manager of Bedek Aviation Group, commented, "We are excited about the contracts entered with Wizz Air. This is an opportunity to expand our client base for maintenance and technical services. Most of our clients regard us as their 'second home for maintenance', consistently choosing us to perform maintenance works with a larger scope than those required for short-term parking under the aviation regulations. Bedek's line services uniqueness is by giving an immediate solution thanks to its special capabilities: airplanes, engines and accessories.We are proud to provide our services to the world's best airlines and seek to continue expanding our client base."
Heiko Holm, CTO at Wizz Air, said, “As we continue to grow our operations in Israel, we are glad to start our collaboration with Bedek Aviation Group, an excellent provider for our line maintenance and technical services in the country. Wizz Air prides itself on having one of the youngest, most efficient fleets in Europe and Bedek Aviation Group is a reliable and efficient partner that will use its expertise to ensure that our aircraft meet the highest standards in safety.”
