Jat Tehnika Achieves Milestone as First European MRO Company to Complete Passenger-to-Cargo Conversion

JAT Tehnika, a prominent aviation maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) company under the Avia Prime Group, has achieved a significant milestone with the successful completion of its second passenger-to-cargo conversion of the Boeing 767-300. Additionally, our company is the first site in Europe to perform B767 cargo conversion, based on IAI 767BDSF STC.

Notably, this achievement stands out as it was accomplished solely by the JAT Tehnika team, and follows the company’s first passenger-to-cargo aircraft conversion performed in collaboration with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), which took place less than six months ago in the company’s hangar number 2, which, with over 9,000 square meters, represents one of the largest facilities of its kind in this part of the world. JAT Tehnika, as the only MRO in Europe performing passenger-to-cargo conversion with this project demonstrated knowledge and expertise once again.

Milan Marcic, the B767 P2F Conversion Project Manager at JAT Tehnika, headquartered in Belgrade, attributes this milestone to the team’s tireless dedication and seamless collaboration. Reflecting on the accomplishment, Marcic emphasizes how the experience gained from the first European-converted Boeing 767-300 has allowed the team to enhance their methodology and meticulously address every aspect of the conversion process.

As the only MRO in Europe completing passenger-to-cargo conversion, we are proud to have reached this tremendous milestone through our collective efforts. Looking ahead, we are excited to take on our next project, which is the third conversion of the Boeing 767-300 right here in JAT Tehnika’s hangar, stated Marcic.

JAT Tehnika, situated at Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport, offers a wide range of maintenance services, including line and heavy maintenance, engine shop operations featuring four independent CFM 56-3 series maintenance lines, component maintenance, as well as engineering services, calibration services, NDT. The company has 14 maintenance slots across two hangars and an engine test bench accommodating engines rated up to 75,000 lbs.
