AMAC Aerospace has opened a new wide-body hangar in Milas-Bodrum, Turkey. The 4,626m² hangar will be used for maintenance, serving the Middle East and Far East.
The inauguration was celebrated with more than 100 guests from all over the world – including politicians, airport authority officials, potential and existing clients, military personnel and the undersecretary for the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure of the Republic of Turkey.
“We are aiming to turn Muğla into an aircraft maintenance base in the region,” said Kadri Muhiddin, group executive chairman and CEO of AMAC Aerospace. “Our goal is to bring private and passenger aircraft here.”
The hangar will be used for commercial line and base maintenance during the winter, and for VIP maintenance services in the summer.
“Thanks to AMAC Aerospace Turkey, private jet owners in the Middle East will not have to go to Europe for the maintenance of their jets,” said Muhiddin.
“We will be able to carry out the maintenance for all aircraft – from small sized jets to wide-body aircraft. We want Turkey and Muğla to become a regional hub for aircraft maintenance.”
