MAAS Aviation operating aircraft paint shops at Kaunas Airport, Lithuania

Construction of a multi-bay dedicated aircraft paint shop is due to get underway at Kaunas Airport this winter to enable aircraft painting activities to commence from the end of 2020.

The project is being undertaken by Irish headquartered company, MAAS Aviation.

This project is a further development phase of aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) activities performed at the second largest airport in Lithuania.

Tim Macdougald, CEO MAAS Aviation, said: “Kaunas is an excellent location for aircraft painting and the presence of FL Technics and other base maintenance operators at the airport combined with a skilled labour pool and supportive governmental agencies were key in our decision to commit. I would like to thank the Lithuanian Airport Authority and Invest Lithuania for their contributions in making this venture possible.”

Currently, the aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul activities at Kaunas Airport are being performed by Ryanair, FL Technics and DOT.
