Fleet and maintenance

The fleet operated by Helvetic Airways AG consists exclusively of Embraer aircraft: E190, E190-E2 and – from 2021 – E195-E2. Helvetic Airways has one of the largest fleets for short and medium-haul regional flights in Europe.

Helvetic Airways has serviced and maintained its fleet at its own hangar at Zurich Airport since November 27, 2011. Maintenance operations are BAZL and EASA-145 certified. Line maintenance and trouble rectification is carried out at the Bern site. By having its own maintenance operations, the company has full internal control and greater flexibility within the fleet.

    Since November 2011, Helvetic Airways has been operating its own BAZL and EASA-certified servicing operation for its own fleet at Zurich airport. When it comes to regular maintenance work, the airline can rely on the extensive possibilities of its own servicing and maintenance department.
    Complete maintenance of the Helvetic Airways fleet is carried out in its own hangar at Zurich airport. The maintenance is BAZL and EASA-145-certified. In Bern, work is processed as part of line maintenance and trouble rectification. Carrying out our own maintenance allows for full internal control and a higher degree of flexibility. Developing the new maintenance operation has also brought with it an increase in employee numbers since 2011. Helvetic Airways currently employs around 70 maintenance staff.

    In the medium term, Helvetic Airways would like to train its own aircraft mechanics and engineers.
