UNITED BREAKS GROUND ON NEW WIDEBODY AIRCRAFT HANGAR AT NEWARK

Recommended Posts

United Airlines this week broke ground on a new widebody aircraft maintenance hangar at Newark Liberty International Airport.

The airline, which is investing more than $25 million in the 90,000 square foot facility, expects to complete construction by year end.

"United is committed to the city of Newark, the state of New Jersey and the region," said Kate Gebo, vice president of corporate real estate. "Construction of this new widebody hangar in partnership with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey underscores that commitment and our investment in reliability and service."

Economic development officials estimate the project will drive more than 200 construction jobs, $12 million in wages and $52 million in regional economic activity.

"This state-of-the-art facility will be the workplace for more than 700 United aviation maintenance technicians," said Joe Ferreira, vice president of line maintenance. "From this hangar, they will work together to ensure the safety and reliability of United's fleet and the comfort and convenience of our customers."
