MRO: Asia's largest maintenance hangar enters service at Beijing-Daxing airport
GAMECO
A few months after launching its line maintenance activity at Beijing-Daxing International Airport (PKX), GAMECO (Guangzhou Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Co. Ltd) is now just starting its first base maintenance work using the giant hangar built at the new airport, hangar #1.

With a length of more than 400 meters by 100 meters wide, this hangar is today the largest in Asia. It can accommodate 2 Airbus A380s, 3 Boeing 777s and 3 A320s at the same time, or up to 12 A320 series narrow-body aircrafts simultaneously.

GAMECO has just launched a first C-check (18 months) on May 12 on an A330-300 from China Southern (MSN 1815, B-8362). A second A330 C- check is also scheduled.

Beijing-Daxing hangar #1 was built for the specific needs of China Southern, shareholder of GAMECO, and its activity will be shared to meet the short-term lack of capacity of the MRO company, before the delivery of its new giant hangar at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (Phase III project). In the meantime, GAMECO cooperates with China Southern Airlines to jointly build up the scheduled check production line at Daxing.

GAMECO launched the construction of a new hangar of 98,000 m2 on its main site last year, a new facility which will accommodate 6 wide-body aircraft (A380 and 777) and 5 narrowbodies simultaneously. The commissioning of the Phase III hangar will thus bring capacities to up to 30 major checks in parallel thanks to its three Cantonese hangars.
