Location and infrastructure
The US aircraft manufacturer Boeing has established maintenance, repair and overhaul facilities (MRO) at Copenhagen Airport's second largest hangar.
Boeing’s Gold Care customers can now get maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services at the Copenhagen Airport (CPH).
“The Copenhagen Airport has the most intercontinental, European, Scandinavian and Baltic connections of all the Scandinavian airports, and it has been voted Europe’s best and most punctual airport. Boeing’s new MRO facilities strengthens Copenhagen Airport’s leading position further”, says Claus Lønborg CEO, Copenhagen Capacity.
The services, which will be carried out in a hangar leased by Boeing, includes all levels of phased checks, service bulletins and defect rectification. With its 7,500 square meters, the hangar is Copenhagen International Airport's second largest hangar and will employ up to 32 skilled engineers in peak periods.
Complements London Gatwick Airport maintenance
With the Gold Care programme, Boeing together with a MRO partner handles all service on Gold Care airline companies’ aircraft. Monarch Aircraft Engineering Ltd (MAEL), the independent aircraft maintenance provider and division of The Monarch Group, has been contracted to provide MRO at Boeing’s new facility at Copenhagen International Airport.
The contract complements the existing line maintenance MAEL carries at London Gatwick Airport.
