The first widebody aircraft has arrived for C-Check in the new hangar of Hungarian MRO Aeroplex Ltd. at Ferenc Liszt International Airport, Budapest. 

This Airbus A330F freighter is a Code E category aircraft, which has never been in hangar maintenance in Hungary before.

The new 8,200 sq m hangar of Aeroplex was launched in March this year. 

“The handover of the new widebody hangar and the training of our specialists for a larger aircraft type than ever before took a long journey, which is the result of several years of persistent work,” said Árpád Demény, managing director of Aeroplex Ltd.

“I can say without exaggeration that it is a historic moment and a serious step forward not only for Aeroplex, but also for the Hungarian aviation industry.” 

Due to the new widebody hangar, Aeroplex said it has been able to further expand its capacities and capabilities.

The company maintains Airbus and Boeing passenger and cargo aircraft, including the Boeing 737, 757 and 767, and the Airbus A320 family.

Aeroplex said that within MRO operations, each new type of aircraft requires a long training and authorisation process before full maintenance can be carried out.

It said this means the preparations for the Airbus A330 started more than a year ago. In the coming years, Aeroplex plans to expand its range of aircraft handling capabilities.
