NEW HANGAR FACILITY AT LEIPZIG/HALLE
AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE AND ENGINEERING SERVICE GMBH has started operations in a newly-built hangar facility constructed by Leipzig/Halle Airport.
The hangar facility has an overall area of 8,500 sq. m. and is designed to simultaneously accommodate one В747 or four single-aisle В737 or А320 aircraft. Maintenance time using the hangar can be significantly reduced. This has been proven by the first А-checks for Boeing 747-400 freighter aircraft operated by AirBridgeCargo Airlines.
„Leipzig/Halle has been an important location for AMTES GmbH since 2010. The addition of this new hangar facility at such an important and growing freight hub — the second largest cargo hub in Germany in terms of freight turnover — provides a long-term competitive advantage for the company.” says Ildar Iliyasov, Managing Director of AMTES GmbH.
