STTS, painting & sealing specialist of airline, military and VIP aircraft, subsidiary of French group Finaero, moves underway with its painting hangar works and contracts ASI at Dubai South.

In order to respond to the growing needs of the aerospace industry in terms of painting facilities and to offer customers in the Middle East greater proximity, STTS has appointed Aircraft Support Industries (ASI) to take on the building works of its wide body painting bay at the new Al Maktoum International airport.

Delivery is finally expected early 2019. The facility will mainly target MRO painting needs for all types of commercial wide bodies (A380, B777, A350, B787 etc.). Key features of the dedicated hangar will include:

  •     Temperature and humidity control,
  •     Optimization of hangar volume and as a result energy consumption,
  •     Environmentally friendly through regulated waste management and air emissions in conformity with the highest standards.

Christophe Cador, President of STTS said, “I am proud of this facility launch and its level of quality. I am confident that ASI will do its utmost to meet our expectations and enable us to soon deliver painting services of the highest standards to operators in the region,”

Tahnoon Saif, VP of Aviation at Dubai South said: “The new STTS facility adds to the aviation and aerospace industries and contribute in positioning the Aviation District to a global aerospace hub”.

Saif Adds: “We are excited to see our partners progressing in their projects and look forward to supporting them to serve regional and global markets”.
