Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair has confirmed that it is investing €6m ($6.9m) to build a new heavy maintenance facility at Wrocław–Copernicus Airport in Poland.
The workshop will be its first facility in the country able to provide C-checks.
The two-bay hangar, to be named Wroclaw Aircraft Maintenance Services, will provide heavy airframe maintenance on the airline’s growing fleet of 737 aircraft.
Mick Hickey, Ryanair’s chief operations officer, said: “Poland is a significant growth market for Ryanair and Wroclaw is a fantastic location with opportunities to attract, train and employ local skilled manpower.”
The airline confirmed construction of the hangar will begin in November, with its opening scheduled for March 2016.
