AMAC Aerospace has opened a fourth hangar at its EuroAirport site in Basel, Switzerland. The new 7,280m² hangar and 6,038m² apron area enable AMAC Aerospace to expand its capacity for wide-body maintenance; the hangar is dedicated purely to this type of project.
Founded in 2007, AMAC Aerospace now has more than 85,000m² of working space at EuroAirport – including four hangars with 28,280m² of floor space, 6,251m² of workshop and office space, and a 44,610m² apron area. Two of the company’s wide-body hangars are dedicated to completion and refurbishment services. Together these accommodate multiple narrow- and wide-body aircraft – including B747, B777, B787, A340 and A330 types – and can extend to service an A380. AMAC’s smaller hangar is designed to accommodate a wide variety of aircraft simultaneously, for maintenance work.
“Our brand new fourth 7,280m² hangar is our maintenance center for privately owned and operated wide-body aircraft, serving our clients from around the world,” said Kadri Muhiddin, group executive chairman and CEO of AMAC Aerospace. “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.”
The new hangar was built in less than a year, occupying around 60 workers at the project’s peak. AMAC Aerospace involved the same construction team, architects and engineers as were involved in the construction of its other three hangars.
