In the MRO business, the city of Teruel in Southern Aragon is well-known for being home to the largest industrial airport in Europe. The city of Zaragoza has experienced an air freight boom over the last decade.
The region offers perfect conditions for aeronautics-related activities, such as low congestion, a dry climate, R&D facilities and, last but not least, skilled aeronautical engineers and mechanics.
Being close to the leading European Aeronautical Zone in Toulouse (France) has encouraged the presence of an MRO operator in the area and the undertaking of many technical tests which be impossible in congested airports.
Equidistant between the main aeronautical centres in Southern Europe: Madrid (Eurocopter, Airbus, EADS space), the Basque Country (ITP, Aernnova) and Toulouse (Airbus France).
Second most important air freight airport in Spain after Madrid; has 70 ha avaliable in the airport for the aeronautics industry.
