Jet Aviation today celebrates the grand opening of its new wide-body hangar in Basel with approximately 100 guests and dignitaries. The new state-of-the-art 8,700 square-meter hangar provides increased capacity for wide- and narrow-body maintenance, completion and refurbishment projects across the site. It can accommodate up to two wide-body aircraft simultaneously.
Designed to help meet increased demand for wide-body completions and refurbishments, Jet Aviation’s new wide-body hangar, “Hangar 3,” is capable of housing several wide- and narrow-body projects simultaneously. Hangar 3’s wooden arch structure supports the maximum height to ensure space for a Boeing 747 on jacks, while its extended nose-box permits two wide-body aircraft concurrently. In addition to a 5,000 square-meter tarmac extension, Hangar 3 further provides 2,000 square meters for shops and offices.
“We have a long history of handling major modifications and completions at Jet Aviation, and we continue to invest in the latest technologies that support the highest quality and safety standards for our customers,” said Jet Aviation Group President, Rob Smith. “This hangar demonstrates our ongoing commitment to Basel and the region, and is a tribute to our past and future success.”
