posted the : 23.01.2018

TARMAC Aerosave, Europe’s leading aircraft storage and recycling company, is exhibiting at the MRO Middle East show, in Dubai on 23 and 24 January 2017. After announcing the arrival of its 500th aircraft at the end of 2017 and 73 aircraft redelivered during the year, TARMAC Aerosave launches two hangars A380, thanks to an investment of €16 million at Teruel airport. The company’s A380 storage areas in Tarbes have also been delivered and maintenance base approval at Toulouse-Francazal has now been obtained.

€16 million to develop Teruel

At a press conference in Teruel, on 18 January 2018, in the presence of the President of the Government of Aragon, Javier Lambán, an investment of €16 million over two years was announced. Two 20,000 m2 A380 hangars are to be built, as well as logistics areas and offices. The runway will be equipped with GPS and lighting, allowing instrument approaches.

“Just over 200 aircraft have come to the Teruel site over 3 years. The infrastructure is such that we will continue developing it, in order to expand this site, to create jobs and make the Teruel site even more efficient and visible in the global market.” declared Philippe Fournadet, TARMAC Aerosave Chairman.

New A380 storage areas and a transition centre now operating in Tarbes

After the arrival of its 500thaircraft at the end of 2017, TARMAC Aerosave took delivery of its new A380 storage areas at Tarbes-Lourdes, where the Group’s head office is located. Tarbes’ total storage capacity has now increased to 60 aircraft.

As a result of EASA/FAA Part 145 approvals, held for all airliner families (Airbus, Boeing, ATR, Bombardier and Embraer), TARMAC Aerosave now stands out in world aviation maintenance. This complements its recycling and storage services and enables the company to offer its clients a comprehensive service, whether the aircraft is in transition or at the end of its life cycle.
The storage procedures, in compliance with manufacturers’ instructions, allow the aircraft to be maintained in operational condition, so that they can be put back into service at any time. Daily maintenance and constant monitoring guarantee owners optimal storage conditions.
At the end of the storage period, actions to return the aircraft to service consist of carrying out maintenance operations up to and including the C check and/or modifications carried out by TARMAC Aerosave

In 2017, TARMAC Aerosave thus put 73 aircraft back into service from Tarbes and Teruel.
These services can also be provided at the three sites for aircraft not previously stored with TARMAC.

Launch of the Toulouse-Francazal site

In 2017, TARMAC Aerosave won the contract for maintaining regional aircraft and narrow bodies/single-aisle aircraft atthe Toulouse-Francazal platform.

TARMAC Aerosave now has a number of aircraft storage areas at the site and a 5,000m2 hangar able to host up to two Airbus A320/Boeing B737 or four regional aircraft. These new installations bring the total TARMAC hangar area up to 20,000m2, including four hangars for wide-body aircraft and two for medium-capacity aircraft.

On 17 January 2018, TARMAC Aerosave obtained maintenance base approval at Toulouse-Francazal for all aircraft in the Airbus A320, A320 Neo, Boeing B737 Classic/NG and ATR families, making its new site fully operational.
