Euro Jet looks forward to 15th anniversary
Since inception, Euro Jet has grown from a few dozen employees supporting a few hundred flights to over 250 staff supporting more than 15,000 flights by the end of this year. Time to celebrate.
Euro Jet is looking ahead to 2023, when it is planning to show its appreciation for everyone's support over the years.

As Euro Jet concludes a busy summer season it looks ahead to a milestone anniversary; next year the company will celebrate 15 years and is to mark this with a series of events and content creation highlighting its milestones and achievements.

Since its inception, Euro Jet has grown its staff from a few dozen employees to over 250, including an expanded operations control centre. The yearly number of flights it supports has also grown significantly from a few hundred in its first year to over 15,000 projected by the end of this year.

The conflict in Ukraine brought new challenges as the company dealt with significant flight increases in Rzeszow, Poland and Constanta, Romania. Euro Jet adjusted quickly to the demand by opening an office and adding a Mercedes-Benz Viano to the ramp in Rzeszow. The Rzeszow team is led by station manager Kacper Pietrzak who works with country manager for Poland Marcin Zak.

In Constanta, Romania Euro Jet continues to have a strong presence with its own complimentary crew lounge and team on the ground led by station manage Silviu Pavlasc, who works alongside country manager for Romania Daniel Ruiu.

Euro Jet's flagship Prague station will soon open a brand new lounge that will greatly expand its presence at Terminal 3. In order to support its dedicated hangar operation her, the company has purchased a Towflexx electric towbar-less aircraft tug. The remote-controlled tug has exceptional manoeuvrability allowing for more aircraft to safely be placed in the hangar.

Euro Jet now has 15 complimentary crew lounges, having opened new lounges in Belgrade, Serbia and Pristina, Kosovo this year alone, on top of new lounges in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Split, Croatia over the past two years. The company also renovated its crew lounge in Zagreb, Croatia.

All Euro Jet ground service coordinators are NATA Safety 1st trained, and the company has continued with its internal audit programme where safety and quality manager travelled to different stations assessing their work and compliance with documentation plus working and ramp conditions.

“This year started out with the difficult news about the conflict in Ukraine. We were able to get our employees and their families safely out while at the same time adjusting to increased traffic in places not used to having so many flights. This is especially true of Rzeszow, Poland. We now look ahead to 2023, which is our 15 year anniversary and where we are planning so many things to show our appreciation for everyone's support over the years,” says CEO Charlie Bodnar.

Supervisory agents are based at nearly 200 airports in a geographic area that starts in the Czech Republic and covers the regions of the Balkans, Baltics, the Commonwealth of Independent States, in addition to Pakistan. Euro Jet can support nearly every aspect of a flight operation, coordinating all handling arrangements with the airport authority and/or local handling company, organising permits, setting-up fuel, fulfilling crew logistical needs that includes hotel and transportation, and assisting with VIP catering. Euro Jet also offers credit to qualifying customers.
