Our Technical Maintenance Department
Corsair has its own Technical Department. This is responsible for operational maintenance of the airline’s aircraft at its main base at Orly, but also in Fort-de-France, Pointe-à-Pitre and on Reunion. The Corsair Technical Department represents:
Covering activities relating to production, logistics, purchasing, engineering, planning and quality, for servicing and monitoring the aircraft under optimum safety conditions.
An operating budget for aircraft servicing of approx. 50 million euros in 2012.
Safety and security
In 1994, the Corsair Technical Department obtained JAR 145 certification, which guarantees aircraft operation under optimum safety conditions.
The heavy-duty maintenance inspections are for their part entrusted to entities approved for this type of operation, and which meet the highest quality and safety standards (Air France, Cargolux, SASCO, etc.). A team of technical experts is on-hand at Orly 24/7 to coordinate the aircraft maintenance operations at Orly and at the airports abroad. In addition, this team monitors in real-time the behaviour of the latest generation aircraft (Airbus A330), whose on-board systems are in constant contact with Orly via satellite link. Security no longer relates solely to the aircraft, but also on the ground and on-board.
On the ground
You may be asked to show your ID several times, and your luggage may be inspected. For your hand luggage, it is prohibited to carry in the cabin any sharp item or anything that could potentially be used as a weapon. These items will be confiscated from you at the luggage check.
For further information about items permitted in the cabin.
When you board the aircraft, the cabin crew will check your boarding card. Furthermore, they count the passengers when boarding is complete, to check that the number of passengers booked matches the number present in the cabin. These preventive measures and checks are in place for your protection.
In May 2008, Corsair was granted IOSA accreditation, the label issued by the IATA (International Air Transport Association). This label certifies the company’s membership of a recognised quality system, and its safety commitment.
As a holder of this certification, now obligatory for IATA member airlines, Corsair declares and confirms its strict respect for international safety rules, especially in terms of organisation, maintenance and aviation operations. The IOSA assessment programme is based on the methodical examination of nearly 1,000 points covering international standards, as well as airline best practices.
