Beijing starts building Asia’s largest hangar

BEIJING, Sept. 22 (UNI) 

China started building Asia’s largest hangar at Beijing Capital International Airport on Friday.

 The hangar, a service bay for the new Airbus A380 plane, will be located to the north of number three terminal, which is also under construction.

 Aircraft Maintenance and Engineering Corporation Beijing said they will spend 700 million yuan (about 87.5 million U.S. dollars)on the project.

 The hangar, expected to cover 70,437 square meters, will comprise a service hall and a building.

 Six wide-body airplanes like the Airbus A380 will be able to undergo simultaneous repairs in the hangar, which will provide maintenance services for more than 11,500 planes each year.

 The company source said they may build another hangar at the airport when this one is finished.
