The facility will include two new buildings, including a state of the art engine workshop, which will total nearly 95,000 square feet. This is four times larger than the existing facility, enabling teams to work on up to 13 aero engines at any one time, double what was previously possible.

The new service centre is expected to commence operations in early 2013.
