AA Expands Presence at DFW

Beginning next month, American Airlines will operate out of a fifth hangar at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. American currently leases four hangars and a warehouse on the west side of the airport; the new hangar will be on the east side and will be able to accommodate both wide-body and narrow-body aircraft. American will need to spend roughly $900,000 to prepare the hangar for operation-an expense that will be reimbursed by DFW. The hangar is expected to create more jobs as it expands. "This is a strategic opportunity for DFW to receive lease revenue from a major facility that has been idle for some time," said Jeff Benvegnu, vice president of aviation real estate at DFW. "Putting the building back to work will benefit the airport as well as our owner cities."
