AMAC Aerospace has unveiled its new wide-body hangar in Milas-Bodrum. The new 4,626 sq. m hangar will serve AMAC Aerospace’s maintenance services in the Middle and Far East.
Talking at the inauguration of the new facility earlier in July, Kadri Muhiddin, group executive chairman and CEO of AMAC Aerospace, said: “we are aiming to turn Mugla into an aircraft maintenance base in the region. Our goal is to bring private and passenger planes here.”
Situated between Bodrum and Milas on the Southwest coast of Turkey, the airport is operated by TAV Airports. This will be the first time that a mixed business model has been used for the hangar facility. During the winter months the hangar will be used to carry out commercial line and base maintenance. Then during the summer months, the MRO services will focus on VIP business maintenance. Visiting aircraft owners spending their holidays on the Turkish Riviera will also be able to use the hangar for maintenance on their private jets.
Describing how he wants Turkey and Mugla “to become a regional hub for aircraft maintenance”, Muhiddin added: “Thanks to AMAC Aerospace Turkey, private jet owners will not have to go to Europe for the maintenance of their jets. We will be able to carry out the maintenance for all aircraft – from small sized jets to wide-body to aircraft.”
