Farnborough Airport unveils £55m hangar facility, Domus III

Farnborough Airport, Domus III

Farnborough Airport has announced the grand opening of Domus III.

The 175,000 sq. ft hangar facility sets a new benchmark in aviation hangar infrastructure, with sustainability at the very heart of its modern and progressive design.

In August 2022, Farnborough Airport embarked on a bold £55m investment programme, to significantly enhance its facilities and infrastructure by developing a striking 300m long, four-bay, hangar facility, increasing the Airport’s overall hangar capacity by over 70%.

The project has been one of the largest private inward investments into the local area for many years, further demonstrating Farnborough Airport’s pivotal role as a major employer and economic growth engine within the region.

The landmark development was conceived in response to the growing customer demand for premium hangar space and 18 months after breaking ground, Domus III has been delivered on time and within budget.

The development also includes increased apron space assisting the Airport’s screening and parking requirements.

Simon Geere, CEO at Farnborough Airport, commented: “Domus III represents a monumental leap forward in aviation hangar technology, setting new standards in the industry with a state-of-the-art facility that not only cements Farnborough Airport’s position as London and the South East’s premier hub for air connectivity, but also reflects our commitment to drive environmental performance across every part of our business.

“It is an incredibly proud moment for us and marks an extraordinary milestone in the history of the Airport and the local area.

“We eagerly anticipate the positive impact it will have on attracting increased economic activity to the region.”

Domus III is centrally located in a prime position adjacent to the Airport’s two main taxiways, complementing the Airport’s existing award-winning architecture and has the flexibility to accommodate several large aircraft such as the Global 7500 and the next generation of business jets including the Dassault Falcon 10X and Gulfstream G700.
