Irish airline Ryanair has announced plans to invest 40 million EUR in constructing a new 4-bay hangar at Dublin Airport (DUB).
This project will expand Ryanair’s aircraft maintenance facilities at Dublin Airport and will create over 200 jobs for engineers and mechanics.
The new hangar will facilitate the heavy and line maintenance of Ryanair’s expanding fleet, which is set to grow to 600 by 2026 thanks to its investment in its 737-8200 ‘Gamechanger’ aircraft. These new aircraft carry 4% more passengers, burn 16% less fuel and emit 40% less noise than Ryanair’s current units.
The new 120,000-square-foot hangar will feature gas-absorption heat pumps to reduce energy use by up to 35%. Ryanair said this would make it “one of the most environmentally friendly hangars in the EU”.
“As Ireland’s No.1 airline, we are delighted to announce our plans to invest a further €40 million in Dublin which will see significant expansion of our Dublin maintenance base and will create a further 200 highly paid jobs for engineers and mechanics. This facility will be state of the art and one of the most environmentally friendly hangars in Europe and will facilitate the maintenance of our growing fleet.”
Construction of the new facility will commence in the final quarter of 2023 with aircraft maintenance operations planned to start in 2025.
