In spite of the fact that Serbia is a small Balkan country, its aeronautical heritage is tremendous, first of all at the area of aircraft building and maintenance. Since the middle of 20s of the last century, the airline AEROPUT founded its own technical division (the first shops for aircraft maintenance repair and overhaul). After the Second World War on 1st April 1947.the airline AEROPUT changed the name into JAT (Yugoslav Airlines – world famous company) until the 2003, when the new livery and the new name was given – Jat Airways. The company kept the tradition of in-house fleet maintenance.
Jat Tehnika, newly formed MRO, was born on 1st January 2006 as a part of transition process in Serbia, separated from mother company Jat Airways.
With over 80 years of west aircraft technology maintenance tradition, much work is in-house capability, a lot of component shops and a lot of hangar space, situated at the area of international Belgrade airport “Nikola Tesla”, Jat Tehnika is the best equipped MRO centre in the South-Eastern Europe.
