Magnetic MRO has opened a new hangar in Tallinn to further grow its line maintenance services. 

The new facility adds an additional 2000 m2 of hangar space to Magnetic MRO's existing facility, providing a 40% increase in its line maintenance work capacity. The MRO provider says it can also increase its heavy line maintenance work by 30%. 

The facility is equipped to perform several types of line maintenance work, including A checks, return to service, landing gear and engine changes, modifications and similar services. 

The MRO specialist says the line station was opened in response to increasing demand for base maintenance work, which was taking up much of the space in its existing hangar at the station, leaving few slots for line maintenance. 

Jan Kotka, chief operating officer of Magnetic Group, says the new hangar will strengthen the Magnetic Line station in the Estonian capital.

“The new hangar helps to boost line maintenance services and business as a whole for the Magnetic Maintenance sector, while providing additional resources and services to its customers,” he says. 

“This new hangar is definitely a rational alternative to a standard MRO hangar,” explains Kaspars Podins, head of production at Magnetic Line. “The construction is lightweight and durable, considering applicable wind speeds and snow loads.” 

Over the last year, Magnetic Group has been continuously expanding its capabilities across its various divisions. In March, it rebranded Direct Maintenance as Magnetic Line as a part of their strategy to unify its businesses under one name.
