Spirit Airlines receives FAA’s “Aviation Maintenance Technician Diamond Award of Excellence”

MIRAMAR, Fla., 2022-Feb-23 — /Travel PR News/ — Spirit Airlines (NYSE: SAVE) is honored to receive the Federal Aviation Administration’s “Aviation Maintenance Technician Diamond Award of Excellence” for the fourth consecutive year.

The award is the highest distinction given by the administration for aviation companies that ensure 100 percent of their maintenance technicians complete additional FAA-developed safety training courses throughout the year.

“Spirit’s No. 1 value is safety, and our technicians continuously exceed the standard when it comes to the technical knowledge and training required to ensure a safe working environment and operation,” said John Bendoraitis, Spirit Airlines Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “This award is an expression of the hard work our technicians put in everyday so that our Fit Fleet® delivers a top performance.”

The AMT Awards program was first created by the FAA in 1991 as an incentive to encourage Aviation Maintenance Technicians (AMTs) and employers to participate in recurrent maintenance training and courses. To qualify for a Diamond Award of Excellence, every eligible workforce technician must pass specialized, continuous training in aviation maintenance, regulations and FAA rules annually.
