THE group Globalia is planning to have its aircraft maintenance hangar, being built at Palma airport, in operation by next year.
With this hangar it hopes to attract companies based in Spain, Europe and the north of Africa, thanks to its geographic location. This was what the President of Globalia, Juan Jose Hidalgo, told the media yesterday. He said that the hangar, whose construction started two months ago, will have the capacity to service three or four aircraft simultaneously, which will be very good for Majorca. “Our own fleet will form 50 percent of the business and this will be complemented by offering the maintenance service to other companies with the aim of balancing the operation,” he said yesterday. This formula is the same as the one Globalia has applied with regard to their flight simulators, 50 percent of their business “comes from outside”, while the rest comes from their own group, he said. Hidalgo commented that the maintenance centre will be able to offer its service to other companies with fleets, like Air Europa.
This centre will specialise “in Boeings, the 737-800 as well as the 300 or the 400, which is the same range” and the convenience of having this service in Palma airport will generate the interest of companies which, at the moment, have to make a four hour flight to get maintenance on their aircraft.
