Air Operator Certificate
EU-OPS is a European and Croatian standard defining operational standards and organizational requirements which must be fulfilled by the air carrier operating a civil commercial air transportation service.
On April 19th 2003 we have received the Air Operator Certificate (AOC) from the Croatian Civil Aviation Authority at the Ministry of the Sea, Tourism, Transport and Development (today Croatian Civil Aviation Agency) confirming the fulfillment of the requirements defined in EU OPS 1. We have been regularly renewing the validity of this certificate at intervals mandated by the Croatian Civil Aviation Authority.
Take a look at the certificate.
Maintenance Organisation Approval
In 2001 Croatia Airlines obtained Maintenance Organisation Approval in accordance with JAR145. With the establishment of a unified civil aviation authority of European Union (EASA - European Aviation Safety Agency), common standard for aircraft maintenance organisation approval has been adopted, thus in 2004 respective approval has been changed to EASA Part 145.
In order to confirm adherence to EASA Part 145 requirements, annual audits has been performed by LBA (Lufthansa Bundesamt) experts on behalf of EASA. Simultaneously, Croatia Airlines has been maintaining the validity of equivalent Part 145 certificate issued by the Civil Aviation Authority at the Ministry of the Sea, Tourism, Transport and Development and today this certificate is being issued by the Croatian Civil Aviation Agency (CCAA).
As Croatia joined EU in July 2013, EASA Part 145 applicable to non-EU members has been superseded by Croatian approval HR.145.001 which became acknowledged and valid in EU.

Croatia Airlines received its initial maintenance training organization approval in 2005 according JAR 147 regulations applicable at the time. In 2007 new HR Part-147 approval was gained in accordance with 9A-Part-147 regulation for all aircraft types operated in Croatia Airlines fleet. Since 2012, Croatia Airlines gained maintenance training organization approval for several aircraft types not operated by Croatia Airlines.
With the accession of Croatia to the EU on 1st July 2013, Croatian CAA approval HR.147.001 according to European regulation EC 2042/2003 Annex IV (Part 147), became valid throughout European Union.
