Mesa, the engineering and maintenance company arm of the Hi Fly group, has officially opened its new hangar at Beja’s Civil Terminal for maintenance of Airbus aircraft. The facilities cover an area of about 9,500 m² for aircraft maintenance, and includes workshops, warehouse, offices, training facilities and other support premises.
The new hangar operates around the clock and will serve as a base maintenance unit for Hi Fly’s Airbus fleet, as well as for other airlines which have maintenance contracts with MESA. The hangar is ready to receive and service Airbus A319, A320, A321, A330, A340 and A350 aircraft, and has the capacity to perform maintenance works on up to three aircraft at a time.
Mesa invested €30million (US$36 million) in the project, which will create about 150 jobs in its first three years of activity.
