Following its record-achieving Q3 and fleet expansion aspirations, Croatian business aviation operator Jung Sky looks to put another vital strategy into motion in 2021. The company boosted its team with significant managerial experience by hiring Davor Bujan as its technical director, thus steering the airline into setting up its own aircraft maintenance.
Bujan joined Jung Sky after spending more than 18 years at Croatian flag carrier Croatia Airlines where, in his last 3+ years he held the position of a Technical Director covering maintenance and continuing airworthiness organisations.
“Last month Jung Sky welcomed its 11th birthday. Over the course of this period the company succeeded in achieving satisfactory levels of stability and success of its flight operations“, says Jung Sky's COO Kresimir Vlasic.
“However, after all these years we’re still burdened with the necessity to outsource aircraft maintenance which inevitably affects our flexibility, aircraft availability and expenditures. When we decide to add a third jet to our fleet, this will become an even bigger problem. Bringing in Davor Bujan is the first step in dealing with this issue. He is a professional with experience in establishing and supervising aircraft maintenance organisations which is a process defined by complex regulatory requirements.”
Vlasic points out the company’s goals for next season are to primarily set up and initiate line maintenance operations while first base maintenance tasks would start as soon as possible, hopefully by the end of next year. “All in good times, it’s a step-by-step process. Before we can apply for the Maintenance Organisation Approval Certificate, we need to strengthen our team with the right expertise and by hiring Davor, we’re off to a great start.”
“I’m very happy I joined Jung Sky’s tenacious and passionate team and I’m excited about the tasks put in front of me. It’s a great challenge to build a project like this from scratch and I feel honoured to be given a chance to put my mark on something so big and significant for Jung Sky’s business and growth”, stated Davor Bujan, Jung Sky’s new Technical Director.
