New painting hangar at Kaunas airport to create 400 jobs

BC, Vilnius, 05.05.2020.Print version
MAAS Aviation, a company providing aircraft painting services, has started building a new aircraft painting hangar in the territory of Kaunas Airport and will create more than 400 skilled jobs, Karolis Matulaitis, the airport’s CEO, has said, cites LETA/BNS.

“Basically, the airport has to stand on two legs, one of which is the transportation of passengers and the other – the carriage of cargo or technical maintenance operations,” a press release from Lietuvos Oro Uostai (Lithuanian Airports, or LOU), the operator of Lithuania's three international airports, quoted Matulaitis as saying.

The two-part hangar, which should be completed by the end of this year, will be located in the northern part of the airport’s territory.

With the construction of the hangar finalized, the MRO capacity at the airport will increase to 11 commercial aircraft simultaneously, which are likely to include Airbus A320s and Boeing B737s – the two aircraft models that are used for flights to Lithuania the most frequently.

The Kaunas Airport currently serves as a base for Ireland’s no-frill carrier Ryanair as well as MRO providers FL Technics, DOT, Aviabaltika and OS Technics.
