Independent maintenance provider Sabena Technics has opened a new painting facility near Toulouse Blagnac airport for the A320.

The MRO has built two new painting hangars to replace old equipment and enable it to fulfil a long-term contract with Airbus.

Signed in January 2014, the 15-year deal covers the painting of 80 A320 aircraft a year.

The new Toulouse facility, which took in its first aircraft on Tuesday (January 6), will work with Sabena’s painting subsidiaries in Bordeaux and Dinard to fulfil the Airbus contract.
