United breaks ground on new widebody aircraft hangar
United Airlines broke ground on a new widebody aircraft maintenance hangar at Newark Liberty International Airport. The airline, which is investing more than $25m in the 90,000 ft² facility, expects to complete construction by year end. In October 2012, United broke ground on a 125,000 ft² maintenance hangar at Washington Dulles International Airport. The airline announced this month that it is also investing more than $50m to renovate many of its United Club airport lounges.
