Global Crossing Airlines Group (GlobalX) has entered an agreement with aviation facilities developer and operator Sheltair Aviation.

The agreement will fund and build a new aircraft maintenance facility at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (KFLL) in Florida, US.

GlobalX has plans to break ground on this facility in the fourth quarter of this year and to begin operation in the second quarter of 2025.

GlobalX chair and CEO Ed Wegel said: “This facility is vital to our growth and allows us to perform maintenance up to C checks on our growing Airbus fleet.

“Sheltair has extensive experience in the design, financing, and construction of hangar facilities and continually adds new facilities to their portfolio acting as construction program manager and working with a world-class design and construction team to develop large aircraft hangar facilities.”

The construction value of this facility is estimated at approximately $25m.
