VIRGIN BLUE PLANS SYDNEY MRO HANGAR

Virgin Blue plans to build a widebody-capable aircraft maintenance hangar and engineering base at Sydney Airport.

John Borghetti, CEO, says the hangar will able to accommodate up to four narrow-body aircraft, or two narrow-body aircraft and one widebody aircraft.

“This new strategic asset will provide us with line and base maintenance capability for widebody and narrow-body aircraft at our largest and busiest airport, supporting our expanding fleet operations,” Borghetti said.

“Having a dedicated maintenance base here in Sydney, complementing those we already have in Brisbane and Melbourne, will create significant benefits to our business in terms of optimising scheduling and network operations and also generating potential revenue opportunities by offering use of the facility to partner airlines.”
