AMAC Aerospace has opened its fourth hangar at EuroAirport in Basel, Switzerland, following an 11-month construction period. The 78,360ft² hangar and the additional 65,000ft² apron area will allow AMAC Aerospace to further expand its capacity for wide-body maintenance work.
The new hangar is designed to accommodate at least one wide-body aircraft and two narrow-bodies respectively. Unlike the already existing three hangars, the fourth one is purely dedicated to maintenance projects and wide-body aircrafts. AMAC Aerospace dedicates one wide-body hangar to maintenance and two wide-body hangars to completions and refurbishment services. These hangars together comfortably accommodate multiple narrow- and wide-body aircraft such as Boeing B747s, B777s and B787s and Airbus A340s, A330s and can extend to service an A380.
AMAC’s smaller hangar is designed to simultaneously accommodate a wide variety of aircraft combinations for maintenance work.
“Our brand new fourth hangar is our maintenance center for privately-owned and operated wide-body aircraft, serving our clients from around the world. We are proud to offer our esteemed clientele the chance to experience AMAC professionalism in handling these specially conceived aircraft so notorious for demanding considerably more attention than standard airliners,” said Kadri Muhiddin, group executive chairman and CEO of AMAC Aerospace.
The construction of hangar number four was done in less than a year with 60 workers on site during peak times. All hangars are equipped with the latest technological innovations, meet the highest standards of safety and respect environmental materials in construction. AMAC Aerospace was very well supported by the local authorities throughout the planning phase and the construction of the fourth hangar.
