GlobeAir to build a maintenance hangar at Linz Airport

In order to meet the fleet availability due to the constantly increasing customer demand and to optimize ongoing maintenance costs, GlobeAir, the majority owner Friedrich Huemer and the CEO and co-owner Bernhard Fragner decided to build a hangar for the company’s maintenance operations at Linz Airport.

“I expect an optimization of our maintenance processes and shorter downtimes of the fleet in the course of ongoing maintenance from our own maintenance hangar,” Bernhard Fragner, CEO GlobeAir.

“The goal of this significant investment is also to reduce the cost situation in order to remain competitive.”

“With this significant investment in a special property, as an investor and real estate developer, I am sending a clear signal both to the Hörsching location and to the GlobeAir team,” Friedrich Huemer, Investor GlobeAir.

“Last but not least, this personal investment will create additional jobs in Hörsching.”

Planning has already started and the contracts with Flughafen Linz GesmbH were signed in June, so that construction of the facility can begin in spring 2023.

“The need-to-fly company segment is becoming more and more important. With the settlement of GlobeAir, both the infrastructure and the range of services at Linz Airport will be significantly increased and another step taken in the direction of expanding the portfolio at the airport.”  Markus Achleitner, Economic Provincial Councilor Upper Austria.

On the 3,250 m² site leased by Flughafen Linz GesmbH, which is located near the former charter car park 2, a maintenance hangar with ancillary buildings including workshops, parts storage and administrative premises will be built. 

In addition to the construction of the taxiway and the apron, various supply lines for district heating, water, waste water, electricity and data lines are being provided by Linz Airport.
