GAMECO announces Phase II Hangar inauguration
Guangzhou Aircraft Maintenance & Engineering Company (GAMECO), a MRO Joint Venture owned by China Southern Airlines, South China International Aircraft Engineering and Hutchison Aircraft Maintenance Investment, announced the inauguration of the new GAMECO Phase II Hangar at the Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport. With hangar doors being lifted up slowly, a China Southern aircraft and a China Postal aircraft were towed into the new hangar. The new Phase II Hangar Project located south of the current GAMECO hangar facility, provides total footage of approximately 66,800 m2. The hangar itself is a steel grid structure, offering 15,000 m2 providing a total of 8 maintenance bays to accommodate narrow-body aircraft (B737 / B757 and A321 family). With a height of 29.8 meters it is also capable of accommodating medium wide body aircraft, e.g. China Southern B787, as well. In addition, the maintenance apron area with 30,000 m2 can accommodate other B757’/B737’s or A320’s. The total investment for the new Phase II Hangar project is approximately ¥ 580M RMB ($ 94m USD).
