Alaska Airlines opens new hangar at Anchorage Airport

Published on : Saturday, November 10, 2018

Alaska Airlines has commissioned its newest aircraft maintenance hangar and regional headquarters at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport in the US state of Alaska.

 

 

It was constructed with an investment of $50m, the new anchorage hangar covers 105,000ft². The facility can accommodate two Boeing 737 Max 9 aircraft simultaneously.

 

 

Designed to meet current and future aircraft maintenance requirements, the new hangar can house the airline’s Embraer E175 regional jets, Bombardier Q400 turboprops, as well as Airbus aircraft. The passenger carrier said that the new facility will provide repair and maintenance services to its fleet of jets in Anchorage instead of returning to its main base in Seattle. The new hangar is part of Alaska Air’s ‘2020 Great Land Investment Plan’, a $100m scheme to modernise and expand 11 terminals owned by the airline across Alaska. Featuring an air-handling and heat recovery system made for Alaska winters, the new hangar is capable of preserving the heat. The new system retains the heat when hangar doors are opened and then retransmits the heat after doors are closed. It can achieve temperatures of 65 degree Celsius  from 25 degree Celsius within minutes once the doors are closed. The new facility, according to Alaska Airlines, is also equipped with a fire suppression system, which can fill the bay with fire retardant foam within just three minutes. Alaska Airlines began construction on the new hangar in 2016.
