Last week, Jat Airways, said that Jat Tehnika's planned strike is of a different nature. As the B92 network reports, Jat has employed a foreign company to perform an overhaul of 8 Boeing B737-300 engines while Jat Tehnika will only do an overhaul of 2 engines (1 aircraft). Jat Airways says that Jat Tehnika does not have the capacity to perform an overhaul of all its engines and says that Jat Tehnika sends most parts needing repair to Germany and does not perform the job themselves as they lack professional and qualified staff. Jat Tehnika has denied the claims.
Meanwhile, the Serbian national carrier will today reveal the companies which have applied to provide catering services to the airline starting from the 2010 summer season for a period of 365 days.
