The new facility can accommodate almost every aircraft type in its two bays and is one of the first to have the capacity for Boeing 787 Dreamliner maintenance, with sufficient capacity for other wide body aircraft, such as the Boeing 747, 777 and Airbus A350. The building covers approximately 2.5 acres of land as is large enough to accommodate two Boeing 777-300ER aircraft or ten narrow-body aircraft and will contain a number of component-repair and back shops.

The investment will initially create 150 new jobs, anticipated to grow to 300, including apprentices, and is further testament to the growth and innovation of the region on the World market.

We all love a challenge at Corporate Occasions, hosting high quality events and parties across the UK, including theming some of the largest buildings in the UK, large enough to accommodate full sized indoor football pitches and even a circus big top, but to officially open one of Europe’s latest aircraft hangar was something new – we rose to the challenge and I am proud to say my team delivered on the day.”

The response we have received has been somewhat overwhelming! The feedback was fantastic and everyone who attended the day said the event was spectacular and we put on a show that was worthy of how we (MAEL) should be perceived.”
