According to Martynas Grigalavicius, head of FT Technics’s aircraft maintenance base, the new MRO center will be able to accommodate up to five Airbus A320s or other aircraft of similar sizesimultaneously. Moreover, the extended FL Technics capabilities will enable the company to service aircraft such as the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and 747.

We are planning to welcome the first aircraft in the Kaunas hangar in the New Year,” he said.
