Ground broken on Toronto aircraft hangar project

WCN Editorial Team 26 Sep 2016 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

Air Canada has started construction on a new $90M aircraft hangar project in Toronto, Ontario.

The project — to be located at Toronto Pearson Airport — is expected to support the airline's ongoing expansion of its Toronto global hub.

The 11,800sq m facility will have a capacity to accommodate up to three wide body and two narrow body aircrafts.

Air Canada president of passenger airlines Benjamin Smith said: "Air Canada is demonstrating its commitment to international expansion at its Toronto global hub by investing $90M on this project to create a new hangar.

"We have grown our Toronto operations by more than 50% since 2009. This building, our second major construction project in the Greater Toronto Area following the opening of a new $60M operations centre in Brampton in 2013, will support Air Canada's future growth by giving us state-of-the-art maintenance, storage and training facilities in an environmentally-friendly structure."

The project is scheduled to be complete in April 2018.
