New £1.4m maintenance unit to be built at Enniskillen airport
A £1.38 million expansion at a Co Fermanagh airport has been announced.
Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster revealed details of a new 37,000sq ft workspace development at St Angelo airport in Enniskillen.
The stand-alone unit will accommodate a fixed-wing aircraft maintenance firm, complementing the various helicopter maintenance facilities already available at the airport.
The minister said the development has the potential to create at least 14 new jobs in aviation, engineering and technical disciplines.
“It will no doubt contribute to the growth of the local economy and play an important role in the long-term prosperity of the area,” she said.
“It will also provide much needed regeneration and help to address the social and economic disadvantages experienced in Fermanagh and South Tyrone in recent years.”
