PSA Airlines Plans Maintenance Facility At Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina, International Airport

PSA Airlines, which operates an all-jet fleet consisting of exclusively Bombardier regional jet aircraft flying nearly 700 daily flights to 90 destinations, plans to open a full-service maintenance facility later this year at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport in South Carolina.

“PSA’s immense fleet expansion necessitates additional locations to support the maintenance and reliability of its growing fleet. Since 2014, PSA has doubled its size from 49 aircraft to 115 aircraft this month and will continue to grow to operate 150 Bombardier CRJ aircraft.”

“The location of the GSP (Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport) facility is ideal for PSA Airlines as it is quite close to our largest hub operation at CLT (Charlotte-Douglas International Airport) and will afford unparalleled opportunities to attain synergies that can help mitigate operating costs,” said Kevin Reinhalter, Vice President – Maintenance and Engineering, PSA Airlines.

“The 45,000-square-foot facility at GSP was an efficient choice for PSA and with an existing building already in place, it allows the airline to make only modest improvements such as administrative offices and support space,” company officials said. PSA plans to employ approximately 50 employees at the new facility and plans to hire a full staff of maintenance and engineering professionals including leadership, technicians and stores personal.

“The appeal of the Greenville-Spartanburg area is instrumental in helping PSA attract a skilled and talented workforce. PSA expects to open the facility sometime in the fourth quarter of this year,” officials said.

“GSP is a natural and cost-effective place for our aircraft to undergo overnight maintenance, given where American deploys our aircraft throughout their network. We are excited about the bright future of this maintenance facility and the positive impact it will have on the reliability of our operation for years to come,” he added.
