easyJet opens hangar at BER

The new easyJet maintenance hangar in the BER Maintenance Area was officially opened today. The British airline has built a maintenance hangar covering around 10,000 square metres over a total area of 11,500 square metres. The opening of the hangar marks a milestone because the airline will be carrying out extensive maintenance and servicing work here as part of its “light base maintenance” with immediate effect. Four aircraft up to the size of the A321neo can be serviced in the hangar at the same time.

The 20-million-euro investment project is easyJet’s first ever hangar outside the UK and an important investment in the local airport and business location. It underlines the importance of the easyJet base at BER, which makes a significant contribution to the connectivity of the entire capital region. The hangar will also create new skilled jobs. The team at the maintenance station, which has already been there since 2020, has been expanded so that in future more than 100 easyJet employees will be responsible for the on-site supervision and management of all aircraft maintenance activities of easyJet Europe’s 135-aircraft fleet. Construction was a joint project between easyJet and the airport company. The ground-breaking ceremony for the building took place in September 2021.
