Sabena technics and Airbus sign a 15 year painting contract

Sabena technics, whose aircraft painting activities are already established in both Dinard and Bordeaux (France), has been selected by Airbus for the construction and operation of a painting facility in Toulouse for Airbus A320 aircraft.

The two painting hangars, which will replace existing equipment, will be built side by side on the Toulouse Blagnac airport. They will be equipped with a suitable dockage set and a state-of-the-art vertical ventilation system for an operation start-up scheduled in late 2014.

With the support of its current painting subsidiaries in Dinard and Bordeaux, the Toulouse installations will be able to accommodate and paint over 80 Airbus A320 aircraft per year within the 15 year long-term contract signed with Airbus.

This new partnership will reinforce Airbus and Sabena technics long-time cooperation and trust for the painting but also for the maintenance operations, including the Airbus Beluga fleet maintenance contract as well as aircraft modifications carried out on the Airbus A380 in Bordeaux, among others.

Thanks to its highly-skilled painting teams, Sabena technics will be able to ensure Airbus a high level of performance and quality for the painting of their A320s in Toulouse. The construction of these new facilities reflects the company's desire to keep on developing industrial projects and to maintain its status as a key player in the aerospace industry.
