FEAM Aero will build a new 150,000 sq ft hangar at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International (CVG) airport to support growing cargo operations at the e-commerce hub.
The $40.2m three-bay facility is due to be completed by the end of 2023 and follows the MRO company’s existing hangar at CVG, which spans over 100,000 sq ft of workspace.
This second hangar will be constructed from the ground up and will encompass 150,000 sq ft of hangar, back-shop, and storeroom space, in addition to 5,000 sq ft of administrative offices.
This facility will have the ability to accommodate widebody aircraft types up to 767 fully enclosed and will include three parking spots in the adjacent ramp space.
“It is an incredible accomplishment to continue to expand FEAM’s presence at CVG, an organisation who is truly innovating in the e-commerce space,” said Fred Murphy, chief executive officer, FEAM Aero. “This new operation will provide ample aircraft maintenance capacity and resources for CVG’s growing cargo operations.”
Candace McGraw, chief executive officer at CVG Airport, said: “We congratulate FEAM on their success and business growth. They have been a terrific partner in which we share a vision to further develop needed infrastructure and services to support continued growth of cargo carriers at CVG.
“The airport’s current strategic plan outlines the transformational impact we can make for our region, and this project does just that through job creation and capacity building to grow and diversify cargo operations.”
