Southwest Airlines has completed a major infrastructure investment to support its long-term vision for its Denver operation with the opening of a new Technical Operations complex at Denver International Airport (DEN). The nearly three-year, US$100 million, 130,000 ft² project includes a large aircraft maintenance hangar and room for offices, training and warehousing to support the carrier’s Technical Operations team and represents Southwest’s continued commitment to Denver by bringing more job opportunities to the community.

The new hangar adds an important location within Southwest’s network to support scheduled, overnight maintenance of its fleet of nearly 730 Boeing 737 aircraft. The facility includes space inside the hangar for three Boeing 737s and room for eight additional 737s outdoors and serves as the new home for Southwest’s more than 100 Denver-based Technical Operations employees. The Technical Operations team will begin moving into the facility in the coming weeks.

The hangar joins six other Southwest Airlines aircraft maintenance hangars located throughout the country including Atlanta, Chicago (Midway), Dallas (Love Field), Houston (Hobby), Orlando, and Phoenix.
