American Airlines announced on February 28 that it will invest USD550 million at its base maintenance facility at Tulsa Int'l. This is the most significant investment ever made at a maintenance location in the carrier’s history and will take seven years to complete. Already the world’s largest commercial aircraft maintenance facility, the new project includes the construction of a new widebody-capable hangar and base support building. The new 18,000sqm hangar will be able to hold two widebody aircraft — or up to six narrowbody aircraft — and will replace two existing hangars that can no longer adequately accommodate the size of American’s current aircraft. Construction of the hangar and base support building is expected to begin in early 2021 and will take approximately 18 months to complete.
