Zgornji Brnik, November 13, 2017
Adria Airways Tehnika, the MRO based in Slovenia, was selected to perform the re-registration of easyJet aircraft onto the Austrian registry. The first aircraft was re-registered in July 2017 as part of the granting of easyJet's Austrian AOC. Adria Airways Tehnika is currently working on the re-registration of the remaining easyJet aircraft, around 110 planes, that are required for easyJet’s EU based operations into easyJet Europe over the next two winters.

In July, easyJet established a new airline -easyJet Europe- based in Vienna to enable it to continue to operate flights within the EU after Brexit. The new structure means that easyJet would become a pan European airline group with three airlines based in Austria, Switzerland and the UK. easyJet has selected the Austrian regulator following a rigorous selection process.
