Kaunas, Lithuania: October 18th, 2019: MAAS Aviation’s has announced a multi-million-euro investment at the Kaunas Airport in Lithuania for the construction and operation of a dedicated multi-bay aircraft painting center. The company completed a successful auction for property at the airport and is planning to begin construction on the new state-of-the-art painting site this winter.

The facilities have been designed for the Airbus A320 family of aircraft as well as the Boeing 737 series of aircraft.

Tim Macdougald, CEO MAAS Aviation: “Kaunas is an excellent location for aircraft painting and the presence of FL Technics and other base maintenance operators at the airport combined with a skilled labour pool and supportive governmental agencies were key in our decision to commit. I would like to thank the Lithuanian Airport Authority and Invest Lithuania for their contributions in making this venture possible.”

Karolis Matulaitis, Head of Kaunas Airport: “The addition aircraft painting represents a new activity at the airport which when combined with the maintenance services available offers airlines and aircraft leasing companies a true one-stop experience at Kaunas Airport.”

MAAS is offering painting capacity at the site in Kaunas from late 2020. The company’s Director of Customer Service, Sales and Marketing – Mr. Fran Carew – can be contacted for bookings.
