Bahrain Airport Co. (BAC) announced yesterday that it has signed an agreement with MENA Aerospace to build and operate a major private and business aviation hangar complex on Bahrain International Airport.
Development is already underway on the northwest corner of the airport. When complete, the first phase’s footprint will be 26,362 sq. meters (6.5 acres) with a hangar, private taxiway and ramp plus office and workshop areas, making it one of the largest general aviation facilities in the region.
MENA Aerospace will operate the complex, offering a full suite of aviation services, including FBO, maintenance, avionics, installation and modification with aircraft parking and storage away from the airline terminal. BAC says the complex will be European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) compliant.
Wholly owned by Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company, BAC was established to manage and operate the Bahrain International Airport.
