NATA and Euro Jet Form Strategic Training Partnership

Washington, DC, September 14, 2015 –The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) and Euro Jet Intercontinental announce the formation of a strategic training partnership. Euro Jet is teaming up with NATA to help fulfill Euro Jet’s goal of offering a high standard of service by utilizing Safety 1st training in its ground handling agent network.

Since 2007, NATA Safety 1st has provided line service and safety training to over 25,000 individuals. The addition of Euro Jet to the Safety 1st program emphasizes the value of this industry recognized, standard-based training to aviation business around the globe and marks another milestone in the international expansion of the Professional Line Service Training (PLST) program.

“NATA Safety 1st is committed to promoting safety and efficiency through our unique mix of online and hands-on practical training,” said NATA President and CEO, Thomas L. Hendricks. “We are proud to work with the professionals at Euro Jet to help them achieve their training and safety goals.”

For the past seven years, Euro Jet has developed a world class operations center in Prague and a vast network of handling agents allowing it to become one of the leading ground support companies in Europe and Asia. 

“Our company reaction to Euro Jet’s nonstop growth over the past seven years has not been to sit back and be content with what we have, but rather led us to constantly think, what can we do better? For many years I have been very impressed by the outstanding work of NATA. It is a huge honor for us to have them working with Euro Jet. Not only do we get to work with a top notch organization, but our team will be even better at what they do and our customers will reap the benefits,” says Charlie Bodnar, CEO of Euro Jet.
