Cologne Flugzeugwartung (ACC) and Columbia Jet Service have merged into ACC Columbia Jet Service. ACC’s facility at Cologne Airport and Columbia Jet Service’s newly built hangar at Hanover Airport will work together to provide maintenance for Astras, Gulfstreams, Cessna Citations, Bombardiers and Falcons. In addition to
an existing satellite station in Luxembourg, the company plans to open another satellite station in Pafos (Cyprus) before year-end.

“Our clients will benefit from the joint operation, and we anticipate continued growth over the next three to five years,” said Columbia Jet Service general manager Karsten Schäfer. “Furthermore, the merger offers our Hanover and Cologne employees better job security.”
