LOT Air Maintenance Services to open new technical air base in Rzeszow

In early 2022, the construction of a new technical base for wide-body aircraft will begin in Rzeszow.The main objective of the investment is to expand LOTAMS’s ability to provide wide-body aircraft maintenance services (eg Boeing 787 Dreamliner).

LOT Aircraft Maintenance Services is part of the capital Polish Aviation Group. 1,000 employees offer technical service, including base, line, workshop and aesthetic service. The company, in addition to the domestic carrier, LOT Polish Airlines, also serves foreign airlines.

Not only the airport
As Aleksandra Juda, president of the management board of LOTAMS added that the construction of the base at the Rzeszów airport has been included in the company’s long-term development strategy, while using the potential of Podkarpacie. The base in Jasionka will be the second aircraft maintenance station in Poland.

The main objective of the investment is to expand LOTAMS’s ability to provide wide-body aircraft maintenance services (eg Boeing 787 Dreamliner). The construction of a utility hangar, a pre-hangar board and a versatile back-up facility is underway. As part of the investment, the hangar will be equipped, and next to the hangar, parking.

The undertaking is to increase the potential of the Jasionka airport in Rzeszow, as well as to ensure the acquisition of additional sources of revenues, not directly related to the volume of air traffic.

The hangars will use energy-saving solutions: lighting will be provided by LED technology, and heat – by natural gas. To reduce the impact of emergency situations on the environment, separators and closed tanks will be used when servicing airplanes. Proper maintenance will help to protect the environment: it will reduce fuel consumption, the level of noise generated by aircraft and leakage of operating fluids.


And who will handle these planes? LOTAMS is developing cooperation with technical schools in Podkarpacie and the Rzeszów University of Technology. A chance to gain professional experience is the program of paid internships, which has already been used by over a hundred students, as well as several teachers. The project “High-flying education” is financed by funds from the Regional Operational Program of the Podkarpackie Voivodeship.

SAFEGE S.A.S., Alton Aviation Consultancy and Ghafari Associates were involved in the construction. The construction design documentation is kept by Chapman Taylor International Services.
