Monarch MRO On The Move

Monarch Aircraft Engineering has opened the doors on its new heavy maintenance facility in Birmingham, and if all goes to plan, the facility will see its fair share of non-Monarch livery. 

The 110,000 sq. ft. shop is Monarch's third heavy check base, joining London Luton and Manchester. Company executives say the new facility will play a key role in helping the company boost third-party revenue to 40% of its total by the middle of the decade. 

Monarch's current third-party work makes up about 30% of its revenue, up from 18% in 2010.
Here's a peek at the facility and the organization:
