With its single long runway, ramp space and small terminal, Teruel isn’t your average airport. Its tarmac is lined with row after row of aircraft from around the world. All have been removed from service, whether temporarily or permanently, with Teruel catering for their maintenance or recycling needs.
The airport has played a key role during recent months in response to the coronavirus pandemic. During lockdown more than 100 aircraft were parked up at the facility with Air bp continuing to provide fuel and services throughout this period. Now with lockdown restrictions easing and aircraft slowly returning to the skies the airport has resumed its expansion plans.
Construction work on three hangars had been suspended, but now it’s all go again with completion expected soon. Once finished the new hangars will be used to house and service general and business aviation aircraft.
What’s more, thanks to its relatively accessible location between Valencia, Barcelona and Madrid, Teruel is an ideal base for emergency service helicopters. It also offers extensive maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, as well as aircraft painting for executive aviation.
