Southwest Airlines intends to begin construction on its first maintenance hangar at the Denver International Airport this summer. The nearly $100 million investment will allow Southwest’s mechanics to work on up to three aircraft inside the 130,000 square-foot hangar. There will be parking and facilities outside the hangar for eight additional aircraft. Ground breaking is expected to occur within the next few months and the hangar is anticipated to be completed in late 2020. The facility will be able to house the 75 technical operations employees currently working in Denver, who are responsible for maintaining Southwest’s all Boeing 737 fleet.
