To enhance its aviation maintenance services and capabilities, the maintenance arm of Challenge Group—Challenge Technic—is embarking on a significant expansion initiative in 2024. Challenge Technic is preparing to enhance its presence through strategic developments, building on its solid six-year reputation for reliability.

While making this announcement, Challenge Technic's CEO and Accountable Manager, Erlingur Petur Ulfarsson, emphasised the company's dedication to providing quality service. He states that rather than striving to be the cheapest, the company maximises flight hours for clients and ensures minimal turnover.

Challenge Technic will add three new aircraft to its fleet as part of its expansion plan, significantly increasing its maintenance workload. The company is also creating a new line station and an A-Check line in the hangar and hiring additional staff to manage the increased workload.

Challenge Technic has added three new customers to its maintenance portfolio, bringing nine additional aircraft. Leav Aviation GmbH will have two A320s serviced in the Cologne, Germany hangar starting March 1, 2024. The company is implementing a new activity-based system in 2024 as part of its digital transformation journey. Challenge Technic is committed to sustainability, adopting electric vans, waste recycling programs across three countries, and energy-saving measures at all line stations.

In April 2024, a new large hangar will be unveiled as a significant milestone in infrastructure expansion. This hangar will be able to host a B747, which responds to the increasing demand for hangar space. This expansion aims to cater to customer needs and pave the way for offering new services to attract further business.

Erlingur Petur Ulfarsson added, "Challenge Technic's expansion in 2024 is a testament to its unwavering commitment to excellence, customer satisfaction, and sustainability, reinforcing its position as a leader in the aviation maintenance sector."

Challenge Technic, a subsidiary of Challenge Group, currently employs around 80 certified technicians, mechanics, and store staff across five locations in Belgium, Germany, and Sal/Cabo Verde. The company offers a wide range of line maintenance services for various aircraft types, including transit checks, engine washing, and AOG support, catering to the diverse needs of its clientele.
