Eirtech Aviation expands into Italy
Eirtech Aviation has expanded its global footprint, with the announcement it will begin painting aircraft in the former Alitalia Paint hanger at Rome’s Fiumicino Airport. The company, which is based at Shannon Airport in Ireland, is a leading aviation services provider with operations in Shannon, Dublin, the Czech Republic, Dubai and now Italy. The state-of-the-art hanger, which is used for the painting of wide-body aircraft, boasts four magic carpet platforms, suspended from the ceiling. The magic carpets facilitate the preparation and painting of an aircraft without the need for docking, helping to reduce the time taken to prepare aircraft for painting. The Rome facility brings Eirtech Aviation’s number of dedicated aircraft painting locations to four, with over 20,000 qm² of hangarage.
