New MRO hanger at CVG welcomed by Atlas Air

Atlas Air has welcomed the opening of a new $19m hangar dedicated to maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) of widebody aircraft at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG).

The 103,000-square-foot facility will be run by FEAM Aero, which has operated at the airport since 2015 and currently employs more than 200 technicians servicing DHL, Amazon and passenger aircraft.

John Dietrich, president and chief executive, Atlas Air Worldwide, said: “Our team is committed to the highest levels of safety, reliability and customer service. The new FEAM maintenance facility in CVG will greatly enhance our ability to support our fleet and deliver the highest levels of service for our customers.”

FEAM managing director, Cam Murphy, added: “Not only will this facility help us to expand our services and provide high-quality aircraft services to our clients, but this investment represents our commitment to create more jobs and build opportunities.”

With the addition of more than 100 aircraft maintenance jobs, the CVG operation will become FEAM’s largest in the US.
