ST Aerospace breaks ground to add narrow-body aircraft hangar in Singapore
ST Aerospace broke ground to add a narrow-body aircraft hangar at its Changi facility in Singapore. The total investment in the hangar and associated equipment amounts to $11m. The new hangar is expected to be operational by the end of third quarter 2013. With the new hangar, ST Aerospace will extend its suite of services to support a host of wide-body and narrow-body aircraft at Changi Airport. At over 3,600 m², the new hangar will be able to accommodate two narrow-body aircraft such as the Boeing 737 and Airbus A320, contributing an additional 200,000 man-hours annually. The capacity expansion is in response to robust demand for ST Aerospace’s line and base maintenance services at Changi, especially from the growing fleet of low-cost carriers which typically operate narrow- body aircraft.
