Flughafen Wien AG is building two new hangars for general aviation at Vienna Airport by the autumn of 2019 on behalf of its subsidiary Vienna Aircraft Handling GmbH. The completion of Hangar 8 is scheduled for the summer of 2019, whereas the new Hangar 9 is expected to commence operations alongside it a few months later.
On balance, VAH will then boast four large hangars with a total area of about 16,000 square metres. As a consequence, the general aviation site at Vienna Airport will rank among the top ten amongst the business aviation airports in Europe. The start of construction work was ceremoniously commemorated by a ground-breaking ceremony attended by Julian Jäger and Günther Ofner, Members of the Management Board of Flughafen Wien AG, Michael Zach and Joubin Pour, the Managing Directors of Vienna Aircraft Handling as well as the airport’s project management for the construction project.
The new hangars will be 55 x 65 metres in size. The height of the entrance will be 10 meters. Hangars 8 and 9 will provide sufficient room for aircraft ranging up until the business jet Bombardier Global.
